Also, the Airforums has a very active WA/OR group who rally frequently although I think they hang out mostly toward the coast so a bit of a hike for you, but still not too bad. Also, the CO group, both WBCCI and Airforums folks are a great group to get involved with. Not sure which way is easier for you, but I suspect it's the WA/OR folks.

Keep posting pictures as you discover things.

On another note my buddy is going to be in Boise the Thursday before Good Friday picking up the '53 Flying Cloud he bought off of Craig's List. It's a ten hour travel time trek from Langley, BC to Boise.

A question about the WBCCI rally. Can you go to these rallies if you aren't a member? I plan on going to the Westport, WA at some point this summer, so I will let everyone know and hopefully others will be in the area.

Most Units have Buddy Rally at least once a year that encourages first-timers to visit. It's always a good idea to call the host and let them know you are coming. Also, alot of Units will allow you to come to one rally to "check it out"...no problem. But expect to be encouraged to join if you want to attend the next one. If you have a good time ~ shouldn't be a problem! The key is to get in touch with someone beforehand instead of just showing up....they usually need a headcount for meals or sites. Of course every Unit is a little different...you may not "click" with the first one you hook-up with, but you never know until you visit!

Have fun if you decide to go ~

Shari

I was reading about this 51 Cruisette and it says that the VAC only knows of 8 still around? Is that true? If so, how many Cruisettes (of the 75 known made) are still around?

Thanks,
Matt

Including the trailers on RJ Dial's great site I've got or seen info on about 15-16 extant Cruisettes. My instincts tell me there's likely many more still out there. Heck we didn't even know, by name, what model we had until about 10 years ago and our Cruisette (8050) has been in the family since the late 60's.
Regards,
Tim

Only 15-16 seems rather low to me too. Could any of your Airstream experts give your input about the claim that "the VAC only knows of 8 '51 Cruisettes" running around. Are there more '52 Cruisettes than '51's?

Thanks,
Matt
