In 1974, 15099 was assigned to Harry and Audrea Ashcraft from Baton Rouge LA. It is anyone's guess whether they owned your trailer at one time, as the numbers are frequently reassigned. In 1979 15099 it was assigned to the Sillis from Durant OK. It went unassigned much of the 1980's and does not appear in the `90's directories or 2005.

Can someone check wbcci 7209? It's for sale near me, no title and seller doesn't know anything about. It looks 30'+ Late 50's curious where it originated.

Thanks!

7209 shows up in my 1967 Directory as belonging to Herbert and Mildred La Morder from Oldsmar, FL. That is pretty close to where the trailer is now, but we can not be absolutely certain that they were the ones that put that number on the trailer.

26952 is listed in the 1974 WBCCI Directory as belonging to Walter and Wilma Ress from Albert Lee MN. No caravans were listed.

More recently (1988-2005),the number was listed to a couple from Bismarck ND.The couple attended at least 6 International rallies during those years but no caravans are listed.

If the number on the trailer looks very old and faded it, it could have been the original number put on the trailer by the people from MN. If the numbers still look in somewhat good shape, the ND people could have bought the trailer from MN got the number reassigned to them and bought new decals. They used the trailer for 17 years, so the numbers still would be pretty faded. If you get their name, you might be able to call them to get the story a first hand. PM me, if you want it. The trailer would have had to travel from North Dakota to California to get to your hands.

Hi! Looking to have someone look up mine and my neighbors. Mine was 2616 for a 64 overlander. There are weird patches inside the trailer made with old license plates from Connecticut and New Hampshire. I believe that 2616 now belongs to someoneone else unfortunately, so I'll have to chose a similar number if I move forward with joining the WBCCI. A couple doors down from me I just saw a newer (than mine) Airstream with 17714, but haven't seen the owner home to make an aquaintance.

Rob.

In 1966 directory 2616 was assigned to George and Arlene Conners West Buxton, Maine. In 1979 Leitch had that number and lived in Mission TX.

17714 is currently listed to a couple in Raleigh, NC. They could have sold their trailer to your neighbor and he might not have taken the previous owner's numbers off.

I'm looking at a 1963 Tradewind that has the ghost numbers 30476. It looks to have Wally's Caravan decals on the trailer as well.
If there is any available history on this trailer,PO info and or numbers I'd love to hear about it.
Thanks in advance.

In 1964 the numbers did not go that high. In 1977 30476 Was assigned to Ray and Thelma Morgan from Hugoton, KS. They show they were on caravan 107. We are not sure your trailer belonged to them, but it is possible.

Thank you for the help!
