And I should have given credit where it is due: JOE found the obits for me and I carried on from there! Thanks, Joe!

BTW, Joe, I now have the title for the '59, after 1) being threatened with arrest for theft and 2) having a 30-day hold put on the titling process by a disgruntled wannabe purchaser of the trailer. I didn't know he even existed, but wrote my check a day before he showed up, so ownership was never really in doubt except in his mind. All's well that ends well.

Glad I could help. Glad you were able to make contact with family members. Thanks for doing your part to rescue an Airstream that was on the 1960 European Caravan. We need to identify and save more Airstreams with similar travel histories before they rot away or all evidence is polished off of them.

membership records

1634 is registed to Rob and Pearl Nolan from Shreveport, LA from 1976 to 1982
1416 was registed to Frank and Virginia Harris from 1976 to 1982. They were life members.
4749 is listed in my 1981 directory as being registed to John and Margareta Sellers for Rockville, MD. That number was not used in 1976.

Dwight, if you have time could you look for 10118. I picked this camper up a few weeks ago in hopes of bringing it back to life. I have found a few clues that lead me to think it has spent a lot of time in the South /South East.
Thanks Bob

That explains the Florida certification stickers on it. Iím trying to put together a short story of where itís been and who had it kind of like a family tree. Found some dog tags for Larry Harrelson I need to send back. A picture with the title ĎLeaf River Forest Products start up teamí showed 6 guys in front of a cabin. That company started in 1977 and was sued for dumping in the Leaf River in the 80ís. I think sheís seen a lot in her life on the road. Donít get this kind of history buying a new white box camper.
Thanks for checking!
Bob
