Cal and Dora Bryant from Lynchburg, VA owned 1105 from 1978 to 2001. 1967 Lists Ellick.

1105

WBCC #1105 was originally issued to Louis & Georgie Duiven, 77 Spottswood Rd., Glen Rock, NJ in 1956 or 1957. They went on the Eastern Canada Caravan - Summer 1957. They are still listed in the 1966 directory. My next directory is 1973 and the Bryants had taken the number by then.

The previous post lists Ellick in 1967, but that is an error. The Ellick's had 1005

Hi Scott,
I asked VTS last fall if they would be getting more Wally Byam Caravan decals and they told me yes, but had no time frame. I have not talked to them since then.

Like you, since my trailer originally had decals, I want decals, not the currently available etched plates of the same design. Definitely let me know if you find out that VTS or anyone else has more of the decals.

Quick update on trailer 1234

Just a quick update on trailer 1234 for anyone interested -

Attached is a booklet showing that the SotR 1234 which was owned by Alfred and Dorris, was used as the meeting place for forming the Nebraska Unit.

With a bit of luck, Airstream Inc had number 1234 available and it has been reattached to the Nebraska Unit and trailer.

I believe you mean that WBCCI (the club) has membership number 1234 available, not Airstream INC. which manufactures the trailers.

Yes, sorry WBCCI.
Airstream HQ only handles the numbers 1-100, as I am also trying to get one of these issued, but 1234 would be the Club.
Many thanks,

Sam.

Wally Byam caravan club international round sticker

Hi: I just bought a airstream i think its a 1963, but its a globe trotter 19' and it has the rectagular stickers and a 8531 number above it. I found a round international sticker inside in a drawer. The lady doesnt know what year the trailer is she cant find the title and i am just wondering if the numbers could help me finding out what year it is? I think its a 1963 by looking on vintage airstreams archive photos. Thanks any help please Thanks terry

Sounds like a good trailer. If you post the serial number, we can decipher it for you and tell you the year and plant of manufacture.

WBCCI numbers vs trailer year

The number is not related to the year of the trailer. It is rented from the club by the year. It is called dues. If it is 1963 it has 7 panels in the hemispheres. If it is a 1964 it only has 5 panels. If she lost the title paper, you should have her apply to get new papers before you buy it from her. Getting a new title with just a bill of sales is a lot of trouble in most states. If you know what years they were members of the club we could check whether that number was registered to them in those years. PM me with their name and I will check my directory collection to see if she is telling you the truth.

Serial Number

Serial numbers are definitive for dating. Or we can figure it out from pics because the front doors in 1962, 1963, 1964 and 1965 were all different from one another.

1962 had an overlay main door and overlay door-within-a-door. Big strap hinges.
1963 had two small hinges on each door.
1964 had the big strap hinges again but the door-within-a-door was flush inset.
1965 had a single cast hinge, cast door framing.

There are many other ways to tell the difference because the trailers were evolving quickly during that period.

But again, serial numbers tell all.

the serial numbe is 193D221 She bought the trailer and never put it in her name and the lady she bought it from is real old and she dont remember what state it was last titled in. It took me 9 time to go and get a new vin number and title on the 1947 international bread truck that will be hauling it. I love punishment i guess. I bought the trailer driving through co. around denver 4 weeks ago and she said she would have to find the title, i was going through to utah and phoenix to do some work and i said ok i will pick it up in 4 weeks and you find the title. She didnt so i brought it home and will get the title with pain. thanks it will be nice to know its a 1963. It doesnt have the big hinges in the door like the 1962. It just has big dents in the roof.

You have an Ohio built 1963 Globetrotter.

19 is length.
3 is 1963.
D is double bed (I believe).
221 is sequence in production.
