1957 Airstream Flying Cloud

1957 Airstream Flying Cloud 22. This trailer was acquired by the seller in 2010 then underwent an extensive renovation/restoration which was completed in 2014. The renovation was a collaboration between seller and Woodland RV in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The trailer has been lightly used since and kept in heated storage year round.

The interior wood finishes are solid cherry and cabinet grade cherry plywood. The counters are cherry butcher block. The cushions, drapery and mattress were all custom made by a professional upholstery shop.

All major systems were upgraded/replaced. The aluminum airstream rims, customized Zip Dee awning and custom front rock guard give a modern look to the classic lines of this trailer.

Trailer is camp ready and tows great. I love this trailer like a child but I have 11 other trailers and I need the space for current projects.
