After using our 1954
Cruiser for three seasons and close to 10,000 miles, we must say we would go through the restoration process all over again.
We have met so many great people and learned so much. There are so many days spent thinking about just heading out on the road and leaving the day to day stresses behind! We look forward each summer to a new direction and new experiences.
About three weeks ago the Cruiser had the honor of hiding our new daughter in law before our sons wedding, it was a perfect fall day. Nellie is part of the family and it was an honor when our Daughter in law asked to use her!
The biggest problem I have had was water leaks from the fantastic vents front and back. I removed the vents several times without fixing the issue, fantastic sent me out new housings at no charge(they have improved them) and so far has fixed the problem. Also I would not use Vulkom caulking anymore because that seems to not adhere to the aluminum after a couple years. Otherwise checking the trailer over before each trip has led to no breakdowns on the road, with lots of luck and someone watching us from above this will continue!
For now Nellie is all winterized and ready to hibernate in the barn for another cold Wisconsin winter!
