Here we go...

We have been a vintage camper family for a while and recently made the decision to wrap ourselves in beautiful aluminum. It feels exciting and little scary, just like anything worthwhile. We are thankful for all of your words of wisdom and wealth of advice.

Let the adventure begin!

Congratulations and welcome.

robbocopp, welcome to the aluminumhood. You have a 52 FC. If you want to add the VIN to the Flying Cloud Registry, let me know. We’ve got kin in Ft. Fun. We make an annual trip to Estes for a family reunion. You live in a great area. Good luck and post any questions and we’ll be glad to try and help. Good luck, Bubba

Hello from Conifer: Nice to meet you, glad you decided to participate in Air Forums discussions, especially the vintage hobby. I've been doing it for a number of years and thoroughly enjoy it. I'm working on a 75 Overlander now. We plan on a travel adventure in our 86 Limited this spring. I like working on Airstreams and I like traveling in them.

Post a picture of your shinny aluminum when you get a chance. Here is my Overlander in Colorado Springs last fall.

Hi Bubba,

Thank you for the note and the warm welcome. You were kind enough to add our sweet little 52 the registry late last year. I will have a lot of questions, so thank you in advance for the offer to field them.
