That number is not currently assigned to a member. Since numbers are issued to members and not to trailers, it is hard to trace. Also, you would need to be a member of WBCCI to have access to the directory. Even then, there is not an electronic database which would be available.
Since the club membership number was just that, you would not be able to trace ownership as you could with a VIN or serial number.

If you have any other information, such as last name, year of the trailer, model of the trailer, when it was sold, what state it was registered in, someone may be able to offer more assistance.

Without a vin number off the trailer, there is no way of tracing who bought or currently owns that trailer.

The club does not keep records of the vin number of the trailer, you claim to own, when you join the club. Therefore, the vin number of your grandfather's trailer is not retrievable from the club. The club does not have search capability for vin numbers, so if some one did join the club with a trailer with the same vin number, the new owner's name would not be searchable. Sorry about that.

I did not mean to imply WBCCI could search their records for a VIN or serial number. Such a search would be through the individual state motor vehicle departments. Difficult, time consuming and likely costly, but, distantly possible.
