Hi, I wondered what info might be out there about #11540? The numbers still look fresh on our 73 sovereign. I believe it was in VA for several years.

Hi RaleighAir,
#11540 was first assigned in 1964, years before your '73 Sovereign was built. While this number was originally assigned to someone else, in the 1969 to 1978 Directories, #11540 was assigned to Ed and Reta Melone of Downers Grove, IL, no caravans. Interestingly, the Melones are not listed in the 1972 Directory, but return in 1973. Did they just renew too late to be included in 1972? Or did they sell an earlier Airstream and not rejoin until they bought a new 1973 model? We may never know.

#11540 is then unassigned in the 1979 to 1983 Directories, before being assigned to William and Magdalene Simpson of Jacksonville, FL in 1984 and 1985, no caravans. #11540 has been unassigned from 1986 to 2011.

Thus, we can deduce that either the Melones, the Simpsons, or both owned your Sovereign. Without other clues, such as a dealer sticker on the trailer from an area near either of these couples, or names on paperwork you got with the trailer, we cannot tell for sure.

In any case, enjoy your Airstream!

Can I ask about my newly assigned number? I know about the number that my trailer had, but that's being used by someone else. My new number is 1464. Rae

#1464 was first assigned in 1961. I do not have any Directories from that time period. The first I have that shows #1464 is 1966, at which time it was assigned to Harold and Faye Berry of Clearwater, FL, caravan #44 Western Canada Summer 1965. They may or may not have been the original assignees in 1961.

Given that this number is not currently on your trailer, I will not take the time to search through all of my subsequent directories as each case takes a bit of time. I hope you'll understand that my efforts are mainly to help people discover the possible history of their Airstream trailers.

In any case, enjoy your airstream and it's "new" number!

That's fine-- thanks :-) I like history so it's more curiosity than anything else. I appreciate the effort!
I am sure my AS will wear it proudly.

Joe, I'd love to know what you find about WBCCI number 18242, it's on a 1967 Safari. Born in Jackson Center, I believe, but I bought it in California in 2006. Thinking of joining the club and the vintage club, but I only get to travel spring and fall, so I can't usually make summer events. :-( Thank you in advance!

Hi:

I own a 1973 land overlander with a # 13022 removed
I also own another 1960 overlander # 23915 removed

I bought both of these trailers in Georgia.

I was wondering the history and who registered those numbers. Just interested in the people.

Brian

I'm interested to know anything on wbcci#21326... page 201 on a posting I can't seem to find again, page 200-ish shows it as open... perhaps... but I'm new to all this and any help would be most appreciated. (Image of old # is in my gallery if that matters)

This is rather interesting. Oddly enough, my mother along with all of the females in her family stretching back as far as I've seen personal handwriting for, all inverted assorted letters in the Alphabet. "W"'s were written "M"'s & vice versa & "n"'s were "u"'s so this may be a genetic thing. Believe it or not, I have several old flannel sheets that came from my mothers family (her maiden name was Ponder) that have "Pouder" stamped on them. I suspect this was from some sort of laundry service or perhaps a kid's camp markings. I have never heard of this quasi dislexia before but I do get a good chuckle everytime I see them. Incidently, I've been using them in my trailer for years.

Hi Leland & Gail,
Given that #2167 is not original to your Airstream, I'll just provide a little info. #2167 was first assigned in 1958. #2167 is actually unassigned in my 1960 Directory. The first listing I have for it is 1966 when it is assigned to someone with the last name Burghdorf, but I have no more information. In 1968, #2167 is assigned to Howard and Jane Thornhill of New York, NY.

Enjoy!

Stella,
#18242 was first assigned in 1967, so that number is almost assuredly original to your '67 Safari. In my 1968 Directory, which lists membership as of 12/31/1967, #18242 is assigned to Jack and Hazel Staats of Milwaukee, WI. The Staats are last listed in the 1975 Directory, still in Milwaukee, no caravans.

#18242 is then unassigned in 1976 and I don't have a 1977 Directory, but it is assigned to Ed and Alice Jane Ellison of Logan, OH in 1978. Alice Jane Ellison is last listed in the 1986 Directory, still in Logan, no caravans.

I did not do an exhaustive search, but I spot checked a few years after 1986 and it appears that the number has been unassigned since then.

I will suggest that the Staats almost assuredly owned your Safari, but the case for the Ellisons is less clear.

I hope you get a lot of enjoyment for your vintage Safari!

Hi Brian,
Your case is tougher because neither number was originally issued the year the trailer was made.

#13022 was first assigned in 1965, but was on a 1973 Airstream.
#23915 was first assigned in 1970, but was on a 1960 Airstream.

Regarding #13022, it is unassigned in the 1972 & 1973 (membership as of 10/1/2972) Directories. I am missing a 1974 Directory which would likely be the first to list an owner of a new 1973 Airstream, but #13022 is assigned to Mercer and Connie Brown of Fairburn, GA, no caravans. The Browns are last listed in the 1982 Directory, no caravans. I spoted checked from 1983 to current and it appears that #13022 was never reassigned, so I'll speculate that the Browns did in fact own your 1973 Overlander.

Regarding #23915, it was originally assigned to Carl and Helen Zettler of Canton, OH in the 1971 Directory that reflects membership as of 10/1/1970. The Zettlers are last listed in my 1973 Directory, no caravans. I am missing a 1974 Directory, but #23915 is unassigned in 1975 & 1976.

I am missing a 1977 Directory, but # 23915 is assigned to Ralph and Carolyn Crumley of Gainesville, GA in 1978. The Crumleys are last listed in 1981, no caravans. In 1982 only, #23915 is assigned to Lou and Georgia Milliard of Floral City, FL. The immediate transfer with no unassigned years in between suggests that maybe the Crumleys sold their Airstream with #23915 on it to the Milliards, but I have no proof. I spot checked a few Directories from 1983 to current and it appears that #23915 has been unassigned that entire time.

Which of these members may have owned your 1960 Overlander is a bit of a guess.

Enjoy your Airstreams!

Hi Mr.E,
#21326 was first assigned in 1968 but was unassigned by 1971. In the 1972 Directory, which reflects membership as of 10/1/1971, #21326 is assigned to James and Dorothy Crouch of Paducah, KY. Dorothy Crouch is last listed in 2003, no caravans. I didn't check an directories more recent than 2004, when #21326 was unassigned, but I'd have to say that the Crouches owned your 1972 Overlander. It is definitely possible that they bought your 1972 Overlander new in August or September of 1971 and immediately the club to be listed in the 1972 Directory.
