1965 Safari Numbers

My curiosity has been peaked.

I own a 1965 Safari Double - VIN# - JO225147.
“J” - Jackson Center, Ohio
“O” - Overlander Model
“22” - 22 feet
“5” - Built in 1965
“147” - sequence number 147
There were two sets of “ghost” numbers on the trailer when I got it.
As near as I can determine one of the numbers was 12453, the other being 15133.
I purchased the trailer in Georgia. It came with a receipt dated 2/16/73 from an Airstream Rally in Sarasota Florida. At that time it appears to have been owned by a couple from Atlanta, Georgia.
Can anyone help me with any additional history of this silver lady that I have adopted?
Thanks, BWH

Looks to me like there were 3 sets of ghost numbers and it is hard to tell for sure from the picture what any of them are.One could be 15133 or even 15153.Do you have a picture of the ghost numbers from the other end of the trailer as they may be easier to read?

Older Number

O.K. Now, I'm really curious. When we joined the club last year we were assigned the number that matched our address: 4335. That's obviously a number that's been around for a while. What year would this have been first assigned? I'd love to know who has had it in the past.

Mike, thanks for the reply. Yah, it is a tough call what the different sets of numbers were. I do not have any other photos, and they are gone now as I have started polishing. The photo I posted actually relieved more than looking at them in person. If there are no easy matches for someone in Georgia around the late 60s or 70s then I guess the silver ladies history will remain mysterious. And I am OK with that; I'll enjoy wondering what kind of adventures she has been on. From the minimal ware and tare on the undercarriage it seems like she stayed pretty close to home though. Well that's already changed, as she now lives in Utah.
Thanks again.
BWH
