Welcome to the forums. Someone more familiar with the process of tracking down some of the history of the WBCCI numbers will chime in. Also, some pictures and condition of the FC would be great. Good luck and I hope you renovate the 58 and bring it back to life.

The big red numbers (maybe not still red) indicate the previous owner’s WBCCI club membership number. The numbers go with the owner not the trailer. There are directories for each year that can be used to track down the members. Unfortunately, some of the older (low) numbers have been recycled so they could have been associated with several owners over the years. If you post pictures or let us know the numbers yours has, someone may be able to help you track it down.

Good luck!

Also looking forward to seeing pictures. Is there only indications of one set of numbers on the skin?

Keep in mind the WBCCI numbers don't follow the trailer, they follow the owner as long as the owner remains a member. Once membership ends, the number can be assigned to a new member. PM 66Overlander, the club historian, and he can research the number for you.

When he did my research he found different members in states based on the yearly directories for WBCCI. In cleaning out the trailer to prep for teardown I found materials from the 3rd owner (WA) only. However, the WBCCI Caravans decals/medallions align with the 2nd owner (AZ).

Attached a copy of my correspondence with Joe to give you an example of what can be surmised with your trailer/WBCCI number, but not necessarily documented.

History of #1996 and the WBCCI.pdf

Renovating a vintage airstream can be a long haul, but entirely worth the sense of accomplishment to see it go on for another 60+ years.

Here's an old post from one of the moderators that may help you with the website. It is from 2008 so there may be minor changes.
