Maybe some help out there?

Well, Vintage Trailer Supply is out of the infamous H-20-2 Bargman door handle. You know the one. By chance, does anyone out there have one I could buy....or one I can borrow until Steve has the Vintage Trailer inventory back up. This is really the only item missing from the Cloud....I'm tired of the screw driver now in use. Any leads would be appreciated.

Rebel without a cause.....

Rebel is it!
I have decided to try something else.

I like the condition and look of the "patina" 8010 has acquired. So, for now, I do not plan to polish her. I have already done that to four previous projects.

I am not going the Pergo, Marmoleum or cork floor route. I like the feel of plush carpet and am putting in a designer type carpet.

700 x 15 tires. period! Beauty rings and moons of course.

No new axle. I like the look and feel of a sprung solid original.

Rebel!!!

Polarity light?

This light on top of the breaker box glows when power is connected.

Well, I checked the barn outlets and all the outlets in the Cloud for correct polarity. ....all checked OK. Maybe this light is not a polarity light....just a 100v available light. Any ideas?

I like it too. Like my man with the '49 Merc who left the original beat paint and tightened up everything else. I think you are definitely on the right track and wow, what a find!

Maybe it lights up to keep you from trying to hold a flashlight in your mouth and work on the panel at the same time

coincidence?

Your on the right road Steve. I just come in from the shop where I had the flashlight tucked under my chin looking at the converter....in the sovereign. FYI...the cloud has no converter. It was put together with a battery charger...automotive.. built in. Slick.

Fantastic Fan wiring?

Do any of you old Flying Cloud owners...the Airstream, not you..... know where I can tap into 12v power for a Fan installation in the rear vent opening area? I don't know if the wiring runs along the roof line to the far back areas or not.
