Joe is correct. Number 1601 would most likely have been issued in 1958
My family's WBBC #1200 is first listed in 1957
, and we barely made that issue because the highest number listed is 1209. By 1960
, the highest number is 4359.
We knew the Dyers who lived in Indianapolis, IN. I don't know what happened to them, but they dropped out of Airstreaming sometime between 1967
and 1972. Their number (1601) was reassigned to Roland & Patty Noblin of Raleigh, NC.
Wes & Rachel Dyer were on the 1960
Caravan to Western Canada and the 1961
Caravan to Eastern Canada.
As a point of pride, my family is listed in the "Wally Byam's Caravanners and Club Members 1957
directory" as Frank, Marge, & Mike Brumback, Pendleton, IN #1200. I don't find another example where the child of the primary member is listed in the directory. I consider myself to be a member of the WBCCI since 1957
(with a lapse of membership from 1987 - 2008 - sans Airstream).
