I've just purchased a 63 International Overlander with a WBCCI number of 1256. I would greatly appreciate any history on the trailer and any information as to whether the number is in current use. Thanks!

Welcome to the forums!

All I can tell you offhand is that 1256 was in use (by an owner in Texas) as of the 2009 directory, but is not in 2011. (I don't have the 2010 directory handy.) It seems to me that a number has to be unused for 3 years before they will re-issue it.

As I believe you already know, the WBCCI number follows the owners, not the trailer, so the number may or may not be much help in tracing the history of the trailer.

Research by WBCCI number

In answer to your inquiry 1256 is in the 2010 directory, Flynt

As already quoted the number 1256 is not in the current 2011 directory.In the past numbers have been re-issued within 2 years.
Not much history could be found on this number in the 27 directories I have.
Here is what I did find

1968-1970
Listed to a couple in Lakewood Ohio

1982-1985
Not in directory

1986-1998
Listed to a couple in Coshocton Ohio

1999-2004
Not in dierectory

2005-2010
Listed to a couple from Texas

There were no caravans listed for any of the owners listed above.

Hope this helps

Just wanted to say thank you for all the help on the number 1256! I contacted WBCCI and the number is not currently available but I might try for something similar that will mask the "ghost" of the original numbers. Was hoping for a caravan history but I guess I'll have to do that myself!!!

Sorry I am late to the party, but I've got some additional information to add. #1256 was first assigned in 1958, obviously before your '63 Overlander was built.

The earliest Directory that I have is 1960 and from then through the 1973 Directory, #1256 is assigned to Bill and Florence Minch of Lakewood, OH, no caravans. The Minchs could have upgraded from an earlier Airstream to your 1963 Overlander at some point, but I have no proof to back up the possibility.

I have no 1974 Directory, but from 1975 through 1979, #1256 is assigned to Jack and Jennie Winch, also of Lakewood, OH, no caravans. It is certainly possible that the Winchs bought their Airstream from the Minchs and therefore took over their WBCCI number.

As partially stated before, #1256 is unassigned from 1980 thru 1985, but from 1986 to 1998 is then assigned to Richard & Jean Burchfield, orignally from Akron, OH and later Coshocton, OH, no caravans.

The information I have from 1999 on agrees with what you have already been told. I will not name more recent people who have been assigned #1256 for privacy reasons.

I will guess that it is likely that one or more of the Ohio couples owned your Overlander because of the closer proximity to NH (than to Texas), but there are no club records to prove it. It will take paperwork with prior owner names to prove anything, but a dealer decal from in or near Ohio would certainly support the Ohio theory.

Enjoy your Overlander!

Thank you Joe! There are no dealer decals but there are other decals from businesses in Ohio (like an archery business...) therefore Im guessing that this was an Ohio based trailer and probably never made it to Texas! Wish I could keep the number tho

Sure sounds too coincidental. One letter change. Probably their son? My trailer hasn't had many owners, but it lost ownership of it's #. Someone has it right now. Oh well. New life; new #...

I doubt it was a typo, because both last names were consistent for the full year ranges listed: 1960-73 for the Minchs and 1975-79 for the Winchs. If one was a typo, I'd have expected it to be corrected the next year (people like their names spelled correctly). It is either an unusual coincidence, or else the younger legally changed their name for some reason.

Interesting thread. I've started trying to do an initial exterior cleaning of our 66 Globetrotter and found the ghost of number 15367. Do you happen to have any record of that number in your archives? I know this unit has been in the Northeast since the 80's but know nothing about prior to that.
Thanks

Hi Greg & Mary,
#15367 was first assigned in 1966, so it is almost assuredly original to your '66 Globetrotter. The first directory I have the shows #15367 is the 1968 Directory that show membership as of 12/31/1967. In it, #15367 is assigned to Fred and Claire Turner of Methuen, Mass., no caravans. The Turners are very likely the original owners of your trailer. The Turners are last listed in the 1979 Directory, still in Methuen, MA, no caravans. #15367 is unassigned from the 1980 through 2011 Directories making it almost a certainty that the Turners owned your Globetrotter.

That's all I have. Enjoy that Airstream!
