#5312 was first assigned in 1961, before your 1966 Airstream was built. Here is how that number has been assigned according to WBCCI Membership Directories over the years:
1962-1997: Wendel & Isabell Jones, Mansfield, OH, caravans 29 - Mexico Winter 1962, 33 - Eastern Canada Summer 1963, & 41 - Pan American Winter 1965.
1998-2000+: Unassigned (did not check further).

From this we can be pretty sure that the Jones' owned your 1966 Overlander, be we cannot be sure when. Did they upgrade to it when new in 1966, or did they upgrade to it as a used trailer at a later time. In any case, a 1966 Airstream is too new to have been used on any of their caravans.

That's all I got. Enjoy your 1966 Overlander. We miss our first Airstream from time to time. It was also a 1966 Overlander 26d.

Thank you kindly

Ghost # 19207

Given that this is years after your 1957 Overlander was built, we cannot just assume that is when the number was applied to your Airstream. In any case, here is how #19207 has been assigned over the years:

1968-69: George & Beatrice Steckhahn, Menomenee Falls, WI, no caravans.
1970: Unassigned.
1971-76: Anthony & Mary Korenak, Brookfield, WI, no caravans.
1977: Michael G. & Beatrice Colwell, Menomonee Falls, WI, no caravans.
1978-Current: Unassigned (only spot checked a few directories after 1985)

So what can we guess from this? My guess is that all three couples in Wisconsin owned the same Airstream because of the close proximity of the cities they lived in. It must have been your 1957 Overlander.

I do wonder if Beatrice Colwell was Beatrice Streckhahn. If the Streckhahns dropped out of the club for 1970 because George passed away, I suppose Beatrice could have remarried re-bought the Overlander, and rejoined the club. Of course, this is only speculation. I have absolutely no proof. It just seems too much of a coincidence that two different women with the same first name in the same city would be assigned the same WBCCI number just a few years apart. It is possible, just seems unlikely.

Enjoy your Overlander!
Thank you for your time in researching this for us.
