Info on WBCCI numbers?

Picked up a 68 Trade Wind yesterday from WA. It had been abandoned and was sold by a towing company. It had the numbers 3179 on it at one time. Anyone know who may have owned it when it was wearing those numbers?

In taking a closer look at the picture you posted,it looks to me like the number was 31795.

Is there a directory of old WBCCI numbers somewhere? I have a ghost number on mine and stickers on top of that. I'll be getting my new numbers next week and wanted to do some research with the old ones.

That number belongs to a long time member and looks like it has only been issued once.They are from the Washington State area.

The numbers on the trailers are issued and reissued over the years. My 1964 Directory lists 7853 as being issued to Dee and Edna Martin from Idaho Falls, Idaho. However, this number has been reissued to many more people over the 45 years, since it was originally issued. It is likely the Martins have been dead for years.

7653 is Martin. My typo in the initial reply.

3477 in the 69 directory is listed to Hanson but no address. 1970 Directory has it as George and Gabriellie Hansen from Ellsworth, WI

18488 in the 69 directory is listed to Ken and Ann Plummer of Buchanhon, W. Virginia.

10394 is not listed in the 69 Directory. It looks like they had a printing error as all the number around that number are also missing. 1970 Directory has it listed to Gordon and Chloris Brownell from Salem Oregon.

#7563 would have first been issued during 1962. In my 1966 WBCCI Membership Directory that number was assigned to Eugene and Hazel Broberg of Boulder, CO. No caravans are listed. The number is unassigned in my 1975 Directory.

#20603 would have been origfinally assigned in early 1968. In my 1975 Directory 20603 is assigned to Richard and Adah Leighton of Pigeon, MI. They are listed as having participated on Caravan #83 Mexico - Fall 1971. So if 20603 is in your 1974 Airstream, that trailer could not have been on the noted caravan. Richard (without Adah) Leighton is still listed in my 1980 Directory, but then in Mesa, AZ, same thru 1988. In the 1989 Directory, 20603 is listed for Herbert R. Leighton at the same Mesa, AZ address, same caravan. In 1991 Herbert R. Leighton is listed back in Pigeon, MI at the same address as 1975. He is not listed in my 1993 Directory. I do not have a complete set of directories, but it appears that Richard may have been a middle name and in later years he went back to his first name of Herbert. At least that's a guess.
