Are you asking about a California built,53 Cruiser, serial number 6254 or are you asking about an Airstream with 6254 in red numbers on the front end caps? There is a big difference there.

Jake,
What a great picture! The big red numbers are membership numbers given to people in theWBCCI Wally Byam Caravan Club International (or something like that) :-) there is a thread on here where the historian of the club can research the numbers for you. Unfortunately the info you receive will be related to the member that owned the number, not necessarily the Airstream itself. But it is a start point. I would attach the link but trying to do this on my phone is a challenge.

Since WBCCI numbers are assigned to the rig owners there is no current way I am aware of that you can track a specific trailer.Even if you had the serial number I am pretty sure that there is no database available.

In 1968 #6354 was registered to a couple with the last name of Gantt.
In 1970 #6354 was registered to Richard & Betty Heller from York,PA
In 1982 #6354 was registered to Joe & Rose Nagy from Mountain Home AR

Sorry I couldn't be much help.
Good luck in your search

The number is definately 6354. In taking a closer look at the picture the couples last name was Gantt which matches the 1968 listing in my directory.

Look at the tire cover, isn't that a Gantt or Ganff in the company name? That looks like it might match the 1968 regestration.

Yes, Yes, Yes, Gannt is my Grandparents name - they were the owners, so I want to find who might own the trailer now. Are we at a dead end with the Nagy's from 1982?
This forum has been a great help. I'll try to reach the Nagy family, but is there anywhere I can search if they dont have it??
Thank you - Happy Thanksgiving!

Jakescheid, you aren't getting it. The number refers to the people not the trailer. Your grandfather could have quit the club and sold the trailer to anyone. The number would be given to the next person. There's a small chance that the number stayed with the trailer if the people buying the trailer joined the club and wanted to keep the number already on it.
