Two digit numbers are usually reserved for Airstream employees.

I did some searching. You might find better results by posting this question in this thread---> Number/old owner history . Plus there are a few other threads in the WBCCI area on this subject.

Good Luck !

According to a lady I met at the 2006 Vintage Vacations Rally at the Newport Dunes, the two diget numbers were also used for the founding members of WBCCI as the trailer she had was her grandfathers who was one of the founding members and the number was 79, I think. Unfortunately, her family dropped out of WBCCI for a while and they will not reassign the number.

Thanks for the info.. I'll try that other thread to see if I can get more info do you think that the DMV can do a title search or something like with real estate? Or does the WBCCI have a historian? hmmmm?

You could call the WBCCI. They may have some info for you. I talked to them today. They seemed pretty helpful to me.

The DMV has nothing to do with the Red (or ghost) Numbers. They are not the VIN number, they are club member ID numbers only. The VIN numbers are usually embossed on a placque next to the door or on the frame.

Your best bet is to look through old WBCCI membership directories to find the history of the number and the trailer's owner, which is what folks here can help you do.

It looks like Streamer 23 might have found our previous owners! I'm going to write them a letter and see if I can get a little history on our new pride and joy. What a great group of people you all are, thanks so much for all of your help!
