My '51 has leaf springs and shocks. It sees some ugly pavement roads and has been fine. I do not know if the shocks were original to 1951 but they are certainly old, the shock mounts look factory, and the shocks still work and do not leak.

Nice trailer you got. Body sure is in decent shape.

Hi Ron!

We are somewhat new to the forums - yet I think we are your older sister!

Our 1955 CA Whaletail Airstream Flying Cloud is #7787 - I understand that your trailer is #7786

I am going to look more tonight to catch up with your project.

Please feel free to reply if you'd like!
Kathy

57 13 segment Ohio built # 3459

It's interesting to see that there is only one other 3000 series FC listed. Since mine doesn't have any interior, it would be great to see what one actually looked like inside. If the owners of O-3448 have interior photos, I'd love to see them. I'd like to know how the floor plan differed from the Custom.

A Craigslist listing for '51 Flying Cloud Serial #7144 is here. This trailer is incorrectly listed as a '54 "Silver Cloud". Buddy Brad and I inspected this trailer last week to a medium level of detail.

I'm not sure of how my flying cloud should be registered. It was built in 1958 but is registered as a 1959 model. The serial number on the side is 22D-0116 but I looked in the closet and typed in there is 220-0116. Stan Drury, Grass Valley Ca.
