Interior Measurment

I have a 1956 Airstream Flying Cloud 22ft. Can someone take a interior measurment from inside wall to inside wall in front of the wheel well or behind it if you happen to have the interior gutted. It does not have to be a 1956, it can be a year later or newer. If you happen to have the body off then a measurement of the floor outside to outside by the wheel well would be great. Built a new frame and could not save the old floor to get a accurate measurement. If you have the belly pan off then a measurment of the end of the floor to one of the outriggers would also work.
Thanks Dan

I have a cloud & a tape measure!

We have a '55 Flying Cloud. The interior is still in but would be happy to walk out to the driveway and measure for you. I can measure from interior skin to skin if that would help. Just pm me if you need me to do this.

Thanks Lynn that would be great.I have the floor on, but it seems the non curb side is pulling in a little I think I may be a inch or so to short, would not surprize me too much if it is.
Thanks for your help.
Dan

The measurement inside skin to inside skin is 83" across. Both in front and in back of the wheel well. Hope this helps!

I think you will find the older trailers are a bit inconsistant in that they were pretty much handmade and custom prior to '63-64. They became more standardized in '64, although even "exact models" from the "exact year" all have thier quirks

Individuality...

Well Lynn woud'nt you know, my measurement was 91 inches from outside to outside the u channel. I know there is a little play considering they are more or less hand made, but it always drives me crazy.

That's a lot of play Dan. You must have one of those custom wide body Flying Clouds! If your floor was completely rotted at the edges do you think the shell could have tweaked out over time?
