1953 Airstream Flying Cloud

This beautiful 1953 Flying Cloud was restored and enhanced to a solid roadworthy travel trailer with all the modern conveniences of today s campers but kept the nostalgia of the 1950s. Made by Airstream when they were in Los Angeles, it is a rare 13 panel unit now highly polished. I restored and renovated 2014 to 2016. My renovation goal was to keep the vintage trailer light weight using wood materials of Baltic birch, no heavy plywood. New floor, repaired steel chassis outriggers, all new wiring DC and AC. Kept the 1953 interior design and cabinetry rebuilt, but upgraded modern appliances, except kept the original Dixie LP gas range/oven which works well and looks cool. Original vintage Airstream door in door. Original ceiling mounted 8 fluorescent light looks cool. New Dometic 3 power frig, hot water heater, 8000 btu air conditioner with remote control, a Fantastic fan ceiling vent, fresh water tank, Laveo dry flush toilet, stainless steel shower, PEX plumbing, all LED lighting, full size gel foam mattress bed, 1000 watt sine wave power inverter, AGM 100 amp hour battery, 200 watt roof mounted solar panels, polished LP tanks, rebuilt suspension and electric brakes, spare in baggage compartment, tons of storage, furniture all original refinished Baltic white birch solid wood and light plywoods, new classic turquoise awning, original dining sofa chairs/ bed convertible reupholstered. Very spacious, efficient and comfortable trailer set up for RV park 20amp hook up or boondocking of the grid. Easy to pull gross weight approx. 3000 lbs dry with weight distribution tow bars and anti sway control. I pulled cross country with an Audi Q5. Always kept in a heated garage to avoid the New Hampshire winter, although she is air tight and is unscathed by any weather. A spacious, comfortable, practical, show off beauty and vintage glamping experience for RV parking or remote boondocking. Live riveted!
