I purchased this trailer in 2019 from a private collection in Colorado. Excellent condition mostly original trailer at the time with some cosmetic updates.

Restoration completed in 2020 on this rare model 1961 Flying Cloud. This is a lovely floorplan with the door set back towards the middle of the Airstream leaving a very spacious lounge / sleeping area at the front of the trailer.

Classic Door in Door design with small door opening to a screen for nice ventilation.

It also features the large double Jalousie windows - see photos.

This Airstream is a lovely blend of the old and the new - with a super cool vintage vibe and all of the systems repaired or upgraded to modern working order.

Note the original and very rare large model Norcold Fridge - working on Gas and looking immaculate.

Original Princess Stove and Oven in Excellent condition and working order.

Original wall panel heater in cool copper patina and in working order.

Most of the original woodwork still in place and in beautiful condition.

Original cabinet sliders still in place on the overhead bins.

New Kitchen Counter matches 3 table top designs in lounge area.

Original double sink with new faucet

Original Bath Tub and Original Bathroom vanity counter with molded sink

Original lighting fixtures and wall sconces - all working.
