For example, it this number is on a 1970's Airstream, there is little reason to take the time to research to whom it may have been assigned in the 1960s. I hope you understand.
Understood. Thanks Joe. The number is currently on a 2014 Flying Cloud, and I know who that one belongs to.

Thanks!

Hi Joe,

Thank you for the info on 15901. I purchased the MH in Ohio November 2015 and brought it back to Alberta Canada. It had been in storage for 5+ years and I am in the process of putting it back into travel condition.

Jim

Thanks Joe,

I am pretty confident that the Jasmers had my unit. There was a very distinct and large Minnesota decal on both side of the unit. I found his obituary, and it seems that he and I shared a common profession as LA teachers

http://www.startribune.com/obituarie...asmer,-leroy-a

He also retired the year I was born.

There are some other ghost numbers that I can not make out too. How it got from MN to WA, where we bought it, I will never known. I do sure plan to make many new memories. Since 8815 is available, I will also strongly consider joining the WBCCI.

Best regards!

Mike

1991 excella 25

Hi Joe

I am a new AS owner going though the learning and updating process.

I purchased my1991 AS Excella 25 vin 1STGEAJ26MJ508142 from Janice and Phil Osborn in California.

There is a dealer's plague from Jack and Patty Fast's Cascade Trailer Sales, Eugene Oregon.

It has ghost number 2873

I have not joined WBCCI yet, as I have been spending heavily on getting it set up to my liking. Still have to do axles and tires, which is a big hit for me. Once the rig is ready to hit the road I will join, my local chapter.

Can you help with ownership history of this unit?

Thank You

Bob

Remember the number is assigned to the owner not the trailer. Someone will help you out.

Hi,

I can't help you with the ghost numbers, but being from Oregon, and never having heard of the dealership (Sutton RV is now in Eugene), I had to search it.

I found an ad from a 1971 Pendleton newspaper that they ran.

Also, I came across this postcard for sale:

http://m.ebay.com/itm/Postcard-Jack-...-/121529515210

I have no stake in the sale of the postcard, I just thought it was cool. What a cool name for a dealership! I hope the Fasts were able to retire and tow their own unit around for many years.

Happy restoring and I hope you have her on the road hitched up, without a "hitch" soon!

Cheers!

Mike

Thumbs up

Yesterday I had found an obituary for Jack Fast. Jack died Oct. 10, 2000. Patti died in 1999

He had a degree in Geology from Penn State and served in the 10th Mountain Division during WWII 1942-1945.

Here is a link to the obituary in the Eugene Register from Oct 15 2000

Hi Bob,
The club does not keep records of the Airstreams owned by members, so I cannot provide anything definite. What I can do, though is provide some information about who was assigned the number 2873 since your 1991 Airstream was built. At least one of those previously owned you Airstream. According to WBCCI Membership Directories, #2873 has been assigned as follows since 1991:
1991: Unassigned.
1992-97: Steve & Jan Mondl, Barberton, OH, no caravans.
1998-2001: Unassigned.
2002: Jeoffrey & Cheryl Feil-Morgan, Bradenton, FL, no caravans.
2003: Unassigned.
2004-05: Phil and Jan Osborn, Yrenko, CA, no caravans.
2006-07: Unassigned.
2008-Current: Assigned to a current club member from Louisiana.

From this information we can see that the Osborns were the ones to be club members in 2004 & 2005 while they owned your Airstream. It is unlikely that any of the other couples I mentioned owned it, given the geographic distances involved and the periods of unassignment before reassignment. That said, given that #2873 was unassigned in 1991, but was then assigned in 1992 to the Mondl's that would have joined during 1991 and that may have joined with a brand new 1991 Airstream at that time, if it could be established that the Osborns were not the first owner, it might be possible that the Mondl's also owned it. A long shot, but not impossible.

Get out and use that Airstream - they are best when being used! We will welcome you to the club when you are ready to join, but unfortunately #2873 is currently used. You should be able to get something close if you desire . . . or maybe something like 12873.

This has most likely been asked. Can you request numbers when you join or do you just get the luck of the draw?
If you can request where do I do it.
Thank you

You can request a number when you join, you can do it via the online join form on wbcci.org, or you can call the office and they can let you know if the number you want is available.

Hi all,
I just purchased a 1978 Airstream International Ambassador 28ft. with red numbers on it: 13303. Would anyone be so kind as to look up that number in your directories? Two WBCCI directories from the '90's came with the trailer, but 13303 is not in there. Thank you so much for your help!
