Hi, Im currently restoring a 1960 Sovereign of the Road that has the ghost numbers 4068. Any help or advice in finding out some history on the lady would be most appreciated.
Thanks so much,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,
WBCCI #4068 was first assigned in 1960, so there is a good chance it is original to your 1960 Sovereign. Here is how #4068 has been assigned over the years according to WBCCI Membership Directories:
  • 1960-1968: Kenneth (son) & Edith (mother) Donnan, Breckenridge, MI, no caravans (1967-68 Kenneth only).
  • 1969: Unassigned.
  • 1970-72: G. A. & Thelma Robillard, Santa Cruz, CA (1970), Soqeuel, CA (1972), no caravans.
  • 1973-74: Unassigned.
  • 1975-80: Preston & Mildred Brown, Los Altos, CA, no caravans (Preston only in 1980).
  • 1981-86: Unassigned.
  • 1987-91: Curtis & Jackie McCleskey, Imperial Beach, CA, no caravans.
  • 1992-93: Unassigned.
  • 1994-98: Richard & JoAnn Gidel, Williams, IA, no caravans.
  • 1999: Unassigned. Did not check further due to privacy concerns.
Since you are in Florida and no previous assignees of #4068 are from Florida, and quite frankly none are from anywhere near Florida, it is hard to make a guess. If the numbers look really old and faded, and since you have an Ohio built 1960 Sovereign, I will guess that the Donnan's were the original owners and likely none of the other couples assigned #4068 were ever owners of your trailer. Given the distances involved and the unassigned years in between, it seems most likely that the other assignees were simply assigned an unused number when they joined the club with some other Airstream. That's all I got. Have fun with your 1960 Sovereign of the Road.

To Joe: I can’t thank you enough! I found one of the original owners on a public ancestry website and am waiting to see if he’ll answer my email to him. I sure would love some old photos!

Joe,

From a thread on the Trade Wind forum...

I have a 1967 Trade Wind. I first saw it in western Pennsylvania about 11 years ago, but decided against purchasing at the time. The couple who owned it believed it had been at a campground in West Virginia for many years. The holes that had been drilled in the roof just above the awning track and line of roofing tar suggested it had a permanent roof attached. A year or so later, it showed up on Ebay, listed by a different owner in central Pennsylvania.

The WBCCI number was 22831.

Any information you can provide would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Wanting to see if I can get any information on 27960? I have a 1966 Overlander that belong to my Grandparents. I know they bought it from someone else sometime in the 70's or very early 80's. I am just wondering if they were the WBCCI members or the previous owners. My grandad's name was Aswell James Walker and he lived in Texas at the time.

Talking WBCCI# 21632? Any info in directory?

Howdy,
We are the proud new owners of a 1975 Excella-500 31 ft. The number on it is # 21632 and we bought it in Texas from someone who bought it in Oklahoma. That's all we know, wondering if there are any more details out there about it!
Thanks,

1958 18 foot Traveler

When the time permits, a history of my 1958 Traveler I am restoring would be much appreciated. Its WBCCI number is 3397, serial number 4019, manufactured in Norwalk, CA. Also, is the number active?
I am performing a frame off restoration.

Everything is new from the floor down except for the C3x frame rails, front hitch, rear bumper and leaf springs (which were in turn rebuilt). Everything is re-built exactly as the original except for the 3" drop in the center section of the frame to allow for modern tanks along with an underslung axle with drop to allow for the 3" dropped section. I am waiting for a snowy day to write up my last years work.
