They are also listed in the 1976 directory. Same address. It states their dues were paid through the Texas Hill country unit # 104.

Jimbcole - Thank you so much!

My aunt and uncle retired, sold their home in Detroit, and hit the road full time. I stood on the curb with my mom and dad and watched them drive away in their International Harvester pickup mounted with a Travel Queen camper and pulling their new AS. I guess that must have been 1963. I wanted so badly to go with them. They sent me post cards, letters and rocks (I was a rock hound) from from everywhere they went. We sign the papers on our 20FC today. Hit the road in March 2015.

I have a 1955 Overlander that I bought in Ohio a few years ago. S/N 07051 and it had WBCCI # 13814. Any history on that number or trailer?

In the 1966 directory 13814 was listed to Danial & Beverly Conklin of Ann Arbor, Mich. "Danial" is how it is spelled in the directory.

Got my first AS in April 2014 and just love it. I remember as a small child seeing this silver house on wheels fly by on the highway. Always wanted one. Well I got her and the next step for sure would be to get those big cool red numbers on her. Well I ordered them got them and put them in place yesterday. Looks great. Its True life is good. I know my numbers 3983 belonged to someone else but for the life of me I just can't track down any history. Any help out there. Click image for larger version

Congratulations!

3983 was assigned to Ottis & Alene Browning of Lemesa, Texas, In the 1966 Directory.

In the 1976 directory it is still assigned to the Brownings, but then in Kingsland, Texas

That number, nor the Brownings are listed in the 2012 directory.

Maybe you could put a little sign on your door that says "protected by Browning" or "security system by Browning".

Hi all,
I don't know where exactly how you find all this information but I think it is fantastic. I bought our 1956 Overlander Naddy last and was wondering ever since who may have first purchased her. Naddy's WBCCI number is 11830 and she has also a faded Wally Byam's Caravan sticker below the number. On the front Naddy has a sticker from a dealer that reads ' Warner Trailer Sales 3098 W. Huron St. Pontiac, Mich.'
Any information on her previous owners/history would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much - Mark

WBCCI # 11830 was listed from 1968-2003 to Robert & Virginia Cripps of Dayton Ohio. In later years they are listed from Mission TX.
Caravans for the Cripps' include
#85- Yucatan Winter 1972
#128-Western Canada -1980
#138-Best of Mexico-1982
#156-Mexico West-1985
#207-Newfoundland from Jackson Center-1992

I have listed that I saw this trailer at 5 International Rallies and on Caravan #207 in 1992.

After 2003, the trailer number is listed to another couple from Ohio.

Wow,
Thank you so very much gentlemen. Probably there is no good rational explanation for it but it does make me very happy to know that the trailer has been on international rallies and that it has been owned by one family for a long time.

Turns out 7246 was available and we got it! Cool - for me anyhow - to be touring the US with the same numbers my aunt and uncle did in the early 60s. Also going to join Texas Hill Country Unit as associate members. We did join Michigan Unit as full members as well. Got to say, this is great stuff. Don't know whether we'll do any Rally's - Caravans are probably out, we're fairly set in our travel ways - but connecting with other Airstreamers on a serendipitous basis will be a blast!

Being so impressed with the WBCCI number indicating the first EB of 2015…. I had to post something about my WBCCI number….

In 2010, when I sold my 2009 Int 27FB to go to an SOB (Tiffin Allegro Bus), I had WBCCI #4056. Of course, once I no longer owned an Airstream, I had to cancel the International in Gillette, and drop out of the WBCCI.

About six months ago, after 50,000 miles in the Allegro Bus, I sold it and ordered a new Serenity 30RB. I do not know if this was the first one or not, but, it was finished on June 11.

So, once I had the VIN, I could rejoin WBCCI. My "new" number is #4065.
