Would love any insights that can be provided, I recently bought this trailer and am gearing up for a rebuild. The floor is completely shot, the kitchen and front lounge area are missing, but the shell is in really good shape and we are excited for the process of getting her back on the road.
I normally only answer such questions in this thread:
But I have a little time right now, so I will provide a partial answer here. According to the 1960
WBCCI Membership Directories, WBCCI #3875 was assigned to Clifford & Madge Watkins of Burlington, IA. As of 1967
, the Watkins had participated on the following caravans:
- 29 - Mexico Winter 1962
- 33 - Eastern Canada Summer 1963
It is quite possible that this Airstream participated on the above mentioned caravans, but I cannot prove it as the club did not keep records of the Airstream owned by club members, nor used on caravans.
