I looked at some of your pictures, WHY are you working in gloves, muff hat, and heavy jacket while the sun is shinning? Inquiring minds want to know.

BarryIowa, I looked at your thread. What a great Cloud. You are a better man than I am. After all that work I don't think I could sell mine. In fact my whole home is filled with stuff I can't seam to part with.

You have posted on my thread before I think but if you would like to see pics of my progress, here is the link:

DubleDeuce, I'm not sure which picture you are referring to. My guess is one that during the winter. It can get to 18 degrees with the sun shinning here. The last few weeks it's been 100 or very close to 100. It looks like it going to stay that way for a while. Right now t-shirt and jeans is all.

Sorry for the confusion. I sold my 1962 Overlander (which prompted my profile name change) NOT the 1955 Cloud.

BarryIowa, Your Cloud is a work of art. Glad to hear it still resides in your studio. If and when I get mine finished, it would be special to bump into each other in some boondock and share notes.

Whew!!!! Glad to see you kept that gorgeous Cloud. There may come a day in the distant, very distant, future, when mine shines about half that nicely.

The "other" Barry (well, one of them - there seems to be a lot of us with Airstreams).

We might need to have a Flying Cloud get together somewhere out west in the future.................

Rally

Safarie 57, I like your idea of a Flying Cloud rally. We should hold it on Cloud 9

Final Floor Plan

Some of you may remember that when we bought our 55, it was pretty much gutted. We have studies and looked at other 55's. We also studied all the wall markings to come up with a Floor plan. This is the Final Floor Plan. That is until we actually start building parts. But I'm sure this is close to what it will be. One picture here shows how we took all the thinks like toilet, sink, water heater,etc. and placed them on the floor and began drawing the plan on the 55 floor. We made several changes from the original plan listed earlier. This also helped me plan for plumbing and holding tanks. Hope you find this of some interest.
Don

Great layout Don, I like the table design, is it free standing or on a rv center post? I'm putting the same front layout in the 68, and working on a free standing table that can go outside when needed. We will be down in Medford the end of Aug for a wedding so I'll volunteer Glenn's help, if you needed it, for a day. We should be done with the 68 so he may be bored.

Teresa, We'd love to see you when you are in Medford. Do you know the dates. How about a PM with details. If it's during the 10,11,12, 13 it's the Siskiyou Golden Fair. One of the last real local county fairs. It's almost like being in the Fifties again.
Keep us posted.
Don

Teresa & Glenn,
It will be great to see you both! Hopefully by the time you get here Don will be back working on the house! We still have scaffolding up, but at least it is on a different side than when you were here last.

As to the table... I don't think we have decided completely. We want to have the ability to turn the dinette area into a bed if we need to, so it may have a removable post or something.... I hate having a hole in the floor... or a big mounted thingy to trip on... right now it is hoping to get the shell back on before winter! The bad news is Don wants my Bambi to sit outside in the cold and put the FC in the garage so he can work on it in the winter. Hummmmm....

In the layout we are thinking we will make the hard to get at areas (like the corners...) accessible similar to boats so we can use the storage space better. This trailer seems so BIG!

Don and Claudia.. I almost forgot that you guys are in Eugene... is this your kids place, correct? We might be traveling through by car (sans trailer) either on the way or back up from CA soon... are you close to I 5? I'd love to say "hi!" and peak at your work...
Marc
