Stop bragging and show us some pix.

Congrats Becky. Is this the very one you were talking of previously?

I may be replicating someone else's request but have you loaded pics on the forum anywhere? Would love to have a look at your Flying Cloud.

It looks like a great trailer. You did well to get one of that age that shows so well. Hopefully any work required is minimal. Our '51 took four months of hard weekend and evenng effort to get it to a point where we could feel comfortable with it. Since then we've used it a lot and really enjoy it.

Thanks Barry,
Although I have been doing cars for a long time, I got very nervous about this purchase esp since it was sight unseen due to the fact it was my first trailer. All of you have made me feel much more comfortable that I hopefully picked the right one to start w/ that hopefully will not be a money pit. I guess it's just buyer remorse you know. I have looked at ads every day now since I bought this one trying to figure out if I did ok........you know how that goes. Now I just need to figure out how to get it back to Texas from Calif w/o having to drive both ways. One way rentals are outta site though. Am looking for someone who need a vehicle driven to Texas from Calif that doesn't mind pulling a 22' trailer.

El Jefe ~

Contact John at Wayward Travels. He is a transporter of trailers throughout the southwest and might be able to help you out. He is also a vintage Airstream owner himself so he knows the ropes, so to speak. He can be contacted at john@waywardtravels.net. Tell him you heard of him here.

one man's money pit is another man's treasure

i've heard of people on this forum who have rented a uhaul with a hitch for one way travel. you just rent the truck empty and hook up. uhaul doesn't advertise this towing option on the website, i think you have to call the local area. i wouldn't recommend it, but it is an option.

one note of caution if you have someone else physically tow it is the tires, wheels, bearings, and possibly the axle are all suspect and need to be checked out and possibly serviced before being towed all that distance home.

Cap'n... I think that I gave you the wrong number. It's 8417 (not 14).
