Wally Byam Numbers

I am trying to research the history of my Airstream. I beleave that I am the 3rd owner, the 2nd being my grandparents who purchesed it in the early 70's. They only went on one Wally Byam adventure. The rest was pretty much family outings. The owners before them did some serious traveling. All over the country, pretty much coast to coast including Hawaii. I beleave that the numbers represent the 1st owner.
The Red Numbers on it are 31022.
If anyone knows who to contact or where I should go to research this I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks

streamer23, is our resident "old WBCCI-Number historian" (gee Mike, don't you feel special...you have a title now!) . You may want to drop him a PM and he'll fill-in a couple of blanks for you from his collection of old directories, if he can ~

If your grandparents were members of the WBCCI, that number was most likely registered to them. The number goes with the member and not the trailer.

Good luck in your search.

Yep
Frechette... thats my grandparents. Boy, I thought the number may have been the previous owners. I guess there isn't anyway to find out about all of the voyages this Airstream has been on then.... or is there?
