Hi lahrfarm,
Last one for tonight. And an easy one. #30035 was first assigned in 1975. From then through 1981, #30035 was assigned to Millard and Ireta Emanuel of Lawton, OK, no caravans. #30035 has been unassigned since then, so we can say with certainty that the Emanuels must have owned your '69 Ambassador. Enjoy!

Hi Baseman,
I am still extremely busy with work, but will try to answer one (yours) tonight.

#25086 was first assigned in 1971 before your '74 Tradewind was built. Interestingly, it was it was unassigned by 1973, and was still unassigned in my 1975 Directory (I have no 1974 Directory, but assume it was also unassigned in that one).

#25086 is assigned to Charles and Edna Fosha of Pensacola, FL, from 1976 through 1990, no caravans. The number has been unassigned since 1991, so I think it is safe to say that the Fosha's owned your Tradewind.

I hope you have many great adventures with it yourself!

Thank you so much! That makes sense as there is a very old Florida inspection sticker by the entry door. Thanks again for your time and effort!

Thanks Joe. We purchased our trailer in Portland. It was originally owned by the Mattingly's then sold by their estate in 2009. We purchased it from the following owner. Thanks for your help.

Hi BoCox,
Both numbers were first assigned before your '69 Safari was built, making identification of possible prior owners a challenge:
  • 11260 was first assigned in 1964
  • 15537 was first assigned in 1966
Here are the assignees for those numbers in the WBCCI directories from 1969 to now:

11260:
  • 1969: Unassigned
  • 1970-2005: Carl and Genell Land, Dalton, GA, no caravans
  • 2006+: Unassigned
15537:
  • 1968 or earlier to 1975: Robert and Emma Gibson, Bothell, WA (1969) and Seattle, WA (1975), no caravans.
  • 1976: Unassigned
  • 1977: Unknown (missing Directory)
  • 1978-82: WD Todd, Oak Ridge TN, no caravans
  • 1983-84: Unassigned
  • 1985-2007: Jack and Polly Sharer, Dallas, TX, (only Jack was listed in 2007), many WBCCI unit, region, and national caravans between 1989 and 2003
  • 2008+: Unassigned
I guess we can be pretty certain that the Lands owned you '69 Safari for at least part of the time they were members. I would tend to guess that the Lands bought your Safari new in 1969 and then joined WBCCI immediately. Since the 1969 Diretcory lists membership as of 12/31/1968, it is reasonable they they might not have been listed until the 1970 Directory came out (membership as of 12/31/1969).

Whether Mr. Todd or the Gibsons or Sharers also owned your trailer is more of a guess unless you find paperwork or a dealer sticker linking it to WA, TN, or TX.

That's all I got. Enjoy that Safari!

Thank you!
Well the 15537 makes more sense for the details I know about it. Since I purchased this in KY they told me they were the owners since the early 80's. There is a slight faded sticker that refers to dealer in TN also. The 15537 number was also more clear on the front and back of the AS. The 11260 was definitely the harder to read of the two numbers making me believe that it was not registered right off the bat.

Nevertheless, great info to know Joe! Thanks for all your hard work on sharing the info you have.

With technology the way it is today, why isnt there a website with the information you have? Or is there? Sure would take some work off your plate....

Hi,

I was told you may be able to assist in determining the history of the WBCCI # on a project trailer my wife and I purchased from the Canadian DND a little while ago.

I've added the link to the photos but the # is 7629
- Photo Gallery

Any help would be appreciated.

Rob

Hello Joe,
What do you know about WBCCI # 20832. She is a 1968 24' Tradewind. The ID #'s:
8 134 FT on top
0248 J 117 on the bottom
Came without a title. I ran the above numbers thru the Sherrif's office and the trailer came back clean.

Hi Joe,

When you have a chance to catch up, 4990 of a 1960 Overlander I just picked up in PA. I believe it lived it's first 51 years of life up there in PA. It does have the old rectangular Wally Byam Caravan decal below the numbers, so I'd be curious to know what Caravans it went on, if any.

Previous owner did tell me that the original owner had 2 identical trailers, one used for travel, one parked at a park. The one I have is supposed to be the one for travel...

Appreciate the time you take do pull the research!
