Welcome to the Airstream life. I also have a FC, though a little older. The Airforums has a huge book of knowledge. If you can’t find the answer in the knowledge base, post the question. Good luck, have fun and stay safe.

Welcome from Colorado: A bit different than Australia terrain, but always fun for me to meet folks from other countries who enjoy pulling Airstreams around. Someday I hope to visit your country. My son has.

We've had an Airstream in the family since 1986. We inherited the thing in 2005 and enjoy traveling with it, although not this year with the covid pandemic. It is spreading fast here in the USA. Best to stay home.

Like Bubba L, I enjoy the vintage Airstreams and working on them. The Flying Cloud is one of the oldest Airstream model names. I'm not near the accomplished craftsman as Bubba L, but I've learned from his projects. Your Airstream will last over 50 years and by then, maybe Bubba L needs another project. I'm going to get flamed here, but I truly believe the late model trailers like yours are better built than the older ones. Who thinks a 1964 Ford Falcon is a better built car than today's Ford Focus. Products and processes have improved significantly over the years.

Share your travel adventures as well as your ups and downs of Airstream ownership here on Airstream Forums. Hey, my 1975 Overlander 27' is an "International" trim level, like many were back then. Airstream likes the International name as the Airstream club has hosted Airstream trailer caravans all over the world. Other famous Airstream model names include the Globetrotter and the Safari.

Helllo from France.
Airstream is definitely no longer exclusively American.

Congratulations on your new trailer! (2015 or 2018? Your message says 2015, your profile says 2018. Just askin’)
Australians drive on the left side, yes? Does your Flying Cloud have its entry door on the driver’s side? Are campgrounds set up opposite of ours here in the States? What type of camping are you looking forward to?
Happy Camping!

Welcome! Would love to see some posts from you with pictures of your adventures! That goes for all our European "cousins" too.

Could you post how your trailer is set up? I'm curious about differences in electrical, plumbing, etc.

Welcome to the family!
