Saaayy, Look what followed us home today!

Hi Everyone, Quite a day for us! 8 hour round trip, no Snow, great day actually, 61 Bambi had been sitting for at least 7 years, pulled it out of the yard and checked the bearings and off we went. Tows really well and now I can't wait to get a good look inside. Not great in there, but should certainly turn out nice! Oh, Has a nice Zip Dee Awning on it too! Not sure what to make of the little "Porthole" window in the door...

Goes well with our '57 Flying Cloud http://www.airforums.com/forums/f463...tml#post836400

Thanks for looking! Dave and Brenda

Awesome find! It's a cutie

What is that mounted aft of the windows on the streetside?

I've never seen a porthole like that, but it sure looks nice. My Bambi had a jalousy widow in the door.

You lucky dog! I like how the wheels were sunk into the ground. Now, how are you going to fit them both in the back yard?

Yeah, it was pretty neat how sunk it was, Popped right out though, needed a little air in the tires and they will be replaced before we go anywhere else with it, a little to much cracking there to be comfortable with, actually that was my biggest worry for the trip home, but stopped a few times and no heat whatsoever so continued on.

Mounted Aft of windows streetside is a pop up TV antenna, I haven't had a good look yet, but I had never seen one before either.

Porthole in the door is actually well done and pretty practical, I kind of like it, especially since there are no other windows on that side!

The backyard will be tricky, I have to pull the '57 out a bit, roll the boat back and around, put the Bambi in, move the boat back, then put the '57 back where it was! Piece of cake!!... Wish me luck

Camping will be next year I hope, needs a bunch of work inside, so I have a little time before the snow hits, then early spring!

Thanks, Dave and Brenda

Must be something in the Calgary water! Did you go look at the 19' Travelux as well?

You guys beat me by a day! Was talking to the PO and still mulling a bit..the sunk wheels had me thinking the pullout would be interesting!

Good job.
Personally, I thought the porthole window was a great touch! A little extra light never hurts anything.

That is to funny, I was a bit worried about the tires too and the pullout, but it was cold enough that the ground was nice and hard, so up it came! I never looked at the Travelux with the Flying Cloud and limited space, it wasn't really in the picture for us. Sounds like a good deal though.

Thanks, Dave and Brenda

Cute as a bug's ear! I've seen a round porthole in Spartan Manor doors. Know that we've had threads here at AIR asking for advice on doing this.

Congratulations! Love it! Hopefully we'll see it in person one day. And if you ever think of selling . . . we'd be ready to drive out and get it!

Update: Before the Snow flies here (Possibly Monday) we got down and did some serious cleaning and taking stock of what would need to be done. Many thanks to Brenda (Wife) who really did a lot of the gross work!

Here are a few photo's:
