Hello everyone, my name is Chris Doll and I recently began searching for my grandparents' Airstream - a 1970 Airstream Safari Double, single-axle, bath in the back, sofabed in front (no dinette). They loved that Airstream, it was their retirement dream when they bought it brand-new at a dealership in Saline, Michigan just south of Ann Arbor. I remember it well, having joined them on many campouts at a very young age.
The entire story, with photos, is posted on my blog.
I have already received great assistance from some of the Airstream historians on these boards, and for that I am very appreciative.
The only other information I have to go on, aside from the photos posted on my blog, are the membership numbers 24715. And since their number was not re-assigned, I've successfully joined the WBCC as number 24175. This thrills me to no end, but the search continues. I am awaiting the results of a records search in the State of Michigan. My hope is that they will provide information as to who bought their trailer, and perhaps do a trace. It could be anywhere now, although I'm focusing my search in the Great Lakes region. I would like to find this Safari, of course, if only to know what happened to it. After reading about all of the wonderful vintage Airstreams out there, I will definitely have to get one of my own.
Thank you all for reading my story.
