I have a 1971 Caravanner 25' with a ghost of 887 on it. I bought it north of Chicago. The PO told me he was the second owner, making me only the third owner. Any idea if that's right?
Thanks,
Ken

Thanks! I wondered where our "Eloise" started out!

Interesting history on some of these older trailers. How in the world do we register our number?

7778 is listed in the 1977 directory as belonging to Delbert Hicks from Corning, CA. No caravans are listed. 7778 is not listed in the 1987 or 1994 or 2002 directories.

Lets try again

In post 537 and 539 we inquired about our ghost number and Joe was kind enough to get back with us and pointed out we had likely left a digit off. The trailer is back on the ground so lets try this again. After much looking and several opinions I think you are correct it was likely a #1 in the street side crease that we can't quite see.

So can we try to look up # 15344 thanks in advance.

Just giving this a bump as it has been very quiet. Possibly the checker of the numbers is on a winter break.

Looking for info

We are trying to title an old Bubble left to us by a family friend. It has a ghost number of 609. No title, registration or other information. Anything would be helpful.

Hi Jeff:

We need more facts to be able to help you. Is your family friend dead or alive? Has the Bubble been registered, titled or licensed in the past? Is the old license plate still on it? Titling is a matter of state law and varies from state to state. What state is/was your family friend in? What state is the Bubble in? What state do you live in?

If your family friend is still alive and he/she simply could not find the old valid title that was in his/her name, have him/her apply to the DMV for a lost title. If your family friend has passed away, have the executor or personal representative of his/her estate as donor transfer the old title to you or as beneficiary. If the old valid title is lost or cannot be found, have the executor or PR apply on behalf of the estate for a lost title that he/she can then transfer to you.

How do you know it is a 1955 Bubble? There should be a small data plate near the door that has the Bubble's serial number stamped into it. The Ghost Number has nothing to do with title paperwork or ownership; it only reflects past membership in the Wally Byam Caravan Club.

Sadly, he has passed. There is no paperwork to be found. The serial number is 293. It has the teardrop shaped wheel wells that led me to believe it is actually a 1956 bubble. It has the 13 panel front end and the 9 panel dutchman rear end. I live in Albuquerque NM. Before I can start the title/registration process, I was wanting proof of the model year to avoid headaches with the motor vehicle department.
