any info would be great

We have just took ownership a 1956 airstream. I'm not posative of the model but I believe it is a flying cloud. the badge next to the door has the number 8117 stamped on it. The wbcci # is missing but I can see that the number 1745 was there at one time. The same number is on the bottom of a table that is original to the trailer. If anyone can shed any light on this info we would love it.

According to what I have 1745 was originally assigned to Peter and Dorothy Rosano in Buchanan NY

We love pictures - let see your new trailer!

Based upon the information here, the number 8117 would be a California built 1957 Flying Cloud. Check out the pictures at the link and let us know. If it is an early 57 California FC it would have the whale tail in the rear and 11 pannels in the front. I saw one at a rally last year, a very nice trailer.
