The addiction continues. . . .

Tomorrow I pick up a 1958 Flying Cloud. Paid too much for it, but its the size I want and the body is near perfect. I currently have a 1967 globetrotter of which I am posting pictures of. Did all the cabinets myself, I wish I was as talented as others on here, but I think it came together pretty alright.

My cabinets were shot, so i had to build all new ones, I bailed on the rusty stove in trade for more drawers. The Couch and dinette form a massive bed. All 5 of us fit comfortably in it. When the girls turn teens, that will change, but for now its very good.

The flying cloud cabinets are in excellent structural shape, they will just need to be removed, refinished, and put back in. I will post pictures after I dive into it.

Great Job!

Wow Matt!

Your Globetrotter is beautiful and it sleeps five! Lots of 31 footers can't even do that.

Congratulations on your new 1958. We'll look forward to images and following your progress.

All the best,

Gemma and Murray

Looks beautiful, what is behind the sink on the wall, did you polish the wall or install a SS panel? Im thinking about installing a quilted SS panel behind my stove, is this what you did? Looks awesome! I bet the girls love their campers!

Did you buy your tanks already polished or did you polish them? Im thinking about painting mine, I have a really funky design picked out.

Happy camping!
Happy Trails!

Behind the sink, its just a sheet of aluminum I put on the wall for easy cleaning. The tanks were purchased from vintage trailer supply and I polished them. I will probably move these tanks to the larger 58 trailer as I feel they are overkill for this size trailer. I have filled up only one since I bought them and it has never run out.

Everything about my layout maximizes efficiency and use of space.

Oh and I forgot to mention the best part. The table top was found at IKEA for 3.00, yes 3.00. I looked at it in the store and said to myself "that looks like it will fit in the dinette spot...." Took it home and it plopped right in with zero modification. Its very lightweight and sturdy with the two legs attached to it.
