Flying Cloud Registry

I love my Flying Cloud. I think it is the perfect size. Not too big not too small. Just right!

Now I am curious how many of these 21-22 ft. beauties are still out there. I am going to try to create and maintain a registry of them. If you are willing to add your trailer to this list let me know by either posting or a PM. All I am looking for is Serial #, Your name, forum name, and general location of the trailer (don't have to be too specific).

I see this as being very useful to other owners who are looking for resources in the rebuilding and maintaining of their trailers.

Hi Greg

I agree that the Flying Clouds are great trailers. A good size, at least for my wife and I, good looking, true lightweights, and a piece of Americana when we like to think things were simpler. The best part of owning any Airstream is that it comes with a huge family of fellow enthusiasts.

Our info is as follows:

1951 Flying Cloud
S/N 7173
Barry and Donna Obermeyer
BC, Canada

Thanks for putting this together,
Barry

I dropped in on a WBCCI rally today in Malibu ,Ca and there were 2 FC's in attendance from the El Camino Real Region. Did not get their details but apparently there are several more in their local group in the So.Cal area.
They apparently have enough in their club to form what they loosely term 'The FC Squardron".
I'll see if I can connect some dots here!

1954 FC serial #O-3188

My FC seems to be a bit unusual in that it has a '54 Safari floorplan with the galley and bathroom in the front, street side dinette, and rear twin beds. Does anyone else have that floorplan too?

Thanks for all the replies and PM's so far. I know there are a lot more Flying Clouds out there. How about letting us know about them.

Brad I had seen posts about your registry before and that helped give me the idea.

Murray,

Enjoyed meeting you yesterday, I will let the members in ECR know about this registry and perhaps they will send in their information.

My current count of Flying Cloud trailers with serial numbers is as follows:

1950 - 5
1951 - 6
1952 - 1
1953 - 5
1954 - 3
1955 - 4
1956 - 2
1957 - 5
1958 - 3
1959 - 2
1960 - 0
1961 - 0
1962 - 0
1963 - 0

I know there are more out there than that. I have seen signatures of at least 3 people on the forums that say they have a 1963. Why not post your serial#'s. I would love to find them all.

Greg

Nice job on the compilation. Can you also post the serial numbers by year too?
