Hi TJ,
As stated above, the club will not provide information about recent members to protect their privacy, so this would apply to a 2012 Airstream. If you look back thru this thread, you will see that the information provided is usually for 1950s thru 1970s Airstreams, and the past club members information provided generally stops in the 1990s, again to protect the privacy of more recent members.

I hope you can appreciate this policy. Sorry we cannot help you in your case.

Hi Peetsie,
Sorry for not responding quicker, but I have been very busy and looking up this type of information in old Membership Directories is time consuming. WBCCI membership number 6838 was first assigned in 1962, thus first appearing in the 1963 Directory. Here is how #6838 has been assigned over the years:
1963-72: DeWitt & Marion Smith, Gloversville, NY, caravans 32 - Eastern Mexico Winter 1963, 37 - Mexico Winter 1964, 52 - Mexico Winter 1967, & 69 - Yucatan March 1969.
1973: Unassigned.
1974-82: Marvin & Nell Ickes, Dunkirk, OH (1974), Dola, OH (1982), no caravans.

1983-87: Unassigned.
1988-93: Ernest & Susan Landis, Columbus, OH (1988), Lakeview, OH (1993 Ernest only), no caravans.

1994: Unassigned. Did not check further, but it is likely that this number has been reassigned since 1994.

At this point is is hard to guess which of these couples may have owned a 1966 28' Ambassador that is now in North Carolina. The Smith's obviously joined the club with and earlier Airstream and used that earlier Airstream on at least their first two caravans. They may have updated to a 1966 Airstream and used it on their later caravans. Or maybe not. We cannot say, since the club did not keep records of the Airstreams owned by members.

It is also possible that the Ickes' and/or Landis' may have owned your 1996 Ambassador.

Perhaps a dealer sticker or other markings on the trailer or paperwork you may have gotten with it will help point to prior ownership in NY or Ohio or participation on a Mexican or Yucatan caravan.

That's all I got. Enjoy your Ambassador!

I will acknowledge that there have been several recent requests for number lookups, but since they each take significant time to perform and I currently have no free time to do so, it will be a while before I get back to answering such requests. If you are patient, I will eventually get to all the posted requests, but it may be a few weeks before I can get back to doing so. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.

Joe, I can just imagine the time and effort it takes to dig through the books researching a number. I’ve looked through the threads trying to find our ghost numbers. We picked our 1955 FC in Michigan. From what I understood from the owners were that it originated in California, then to Iowa and finally landing in Michigan. Strangely the top was painted white. When I stripped the paint off, there appeared to be the sea foam green Zolatone primer underneath. That makes me think that was a original buyer’s request at the California factory. Whatever history of the top coat of paint, the ghost numbers of 3960 appeared. We appreciate your efforts and all you do. Thanks, Bubba

Joe,

I really appreciate the research you are doing for folks here. Whenever you get the time, I would love to know the history of my 69 Overlander. The number is 21104. Like I said, no hurry and if you have a paypal or patreon set up, maybe we could all contribute to help make up for your lost time.

Thanks again.
