The earliest directory I have is for 1965. It lists that membership as belonging to Leslie Rupert of Seattle, Washington. The Big numbers are made from a flexible plastic sheeting and will be issued you by the club when you pay your membership. The decals usually start to degrade and lose their red color after about 6 years in the northern climate and 3 years in the south. You can buy another set from headquarters every ten years if you want to keep up appearances. The Airstream aluminum plate can be lightly polished and then painted carefully a medium blue to improve its looks. I do not know what color the aluminum dealer was originally.

the sticker you are refeering to is the Wally Byam's Caravan. It was issued to those going on an actual caravan in the early days. A forums member recently won one made of metal on an ebay auction. It was sent to Steve at Vintage Trailer Supply and is being reproduced so anyone that wants can own one.

A huge thank you to both dwightdi and 62overlander for the information, that's just great, I have been using Vintage Trailer supplies for some parts already (roof vent, side marker lights, etc) and can't wait to get my hands on the new Wally Byam's Caravan repo. As for the membership, is there any way I can garentee that I will get this same membership number? Also once I join will more info about this trailer become available to me?

Send an email to Jodi Morris ( ) and find out if the number is available. If it is, she can make sure you get that number when you join.
