Thank you! Really excited to be a part of a wonderful community. My wife and boys are anxious for me to dive in ... they look forward to camping in style.

Hey Montana, what a great trailer! And, welcome to the yellow brick road of trailer restoration; don't be intimidated to post, everyone understands what you're going through! Questions are good and you can learn a lot before going down the wrong path (yeah, like don't use silicon caulk on aluminum. ouch) The forums are an amazing resource and a very cool community.

Thank you so much for you message. The million questions I have even before I begin will more than likely double once I start! The trailer has got a lot of attention in my neighborhood and I know with the resources here on these forums, I will truly make this sweet Cloud shine!

Jeremy

Thank Mike for the welcome! I would of loved to live during 50's and 60's so my Cloud will have to suffice in taking me back a bit in time! I am sending over a PM here soon as I know you were interested in some of the interior parts.

Welcome to the 58 FC club. Mine is 8417 and is similar to yours based on the window conformation.

Thanks for your message. In my search of the forums I thought I found a couple other FC's that were very close to my number, great to see we are in the same field! Is your '58 finished or are you in the process of restoration?

Interior of the Cloud

Well, as they say in Montana ~ "as long as I have a warm place to lay my head I will be okay". This trailer was a fishing / hunting rig so the details of the inside were not too important to the previous owner. You can see the wear and tear on the floor with tiles broken. The back window broke (hence the temp. cardboard) as it had an 8 foot snow drift against it this last winter. The interior has definately seen better days but that is all about to change.

I am tearing everything out and starting from the ground up. I am selling the Princess Stove, the Krefft Fridge, the Glen-Air Furnace, sinks, toilet, cabinet hardware, the goucho couch, can-opener attached to the wall, original hot water tank, water faucets, etc. ~ just about everything. I've had several private messages so first come first serve.

No Snow = Time to tear/clean things up

Time to dig in as the snow has finally melted. The 2x4 board screwed to the front of the trailer was used as a very crud wiring harness / brace of sorts. The front aluminum panel is riddled with holes, not sure if I want to replace the whole panel or patch/rivet it up.

I also went after the algae buildup on the cap and rock shield so my wife felt a little more comfortable looking at it in the driveway. My 2 year old son is helping (he has tools in hand ), a boy after dad's own heart. Last pic shows the board removed and the front cleaned up from the algae.

Where would I get another window rock shield? I am not really keen on the green color.

They are never "finished" but all the hard work is behind me. You can see pictures of my process here:

Congrats Jeremy!! That is a beauty of a FC. The late fifty's produced some great trailers that were well thought out and designed. welcome and plunge right in. Take more pictures than you ever think you'll need before you tear things apart and as you remove items. Ask your questions, we're all ears and eyes.

So, it looks like the WBCCI number for the last owners active in the club was 4821. You might find out more about your trailer's history (such as which caravan(s) it traveled in, etc.) by posting that number in the WBCCI thread where the kind folks with historic documents look things like that up. I think this is the thread for that:
