1954 Orvis Airstream Flying Cloud Travel Trailer

The average person might scoff at the thought of going cross-country in a trailer that was built in 1954, but that all changes when you see this immaculately restored Airstream Flying Cloud.

The crew at Timeless Travel Trailers has worked their magic on this onetime hunting and fishing lodge, and you don’t have to be a Baby Boomer to find the whole thing pretty glorious. The makeover was meticulous, but we’ll start with the interior which features a liberal use of natural hickory wood, along with aged oak flooring, copper sheet, and genuine leather to soothe the senses. The exterior is hand-polished, while a new axle, brakes, running gear, suspension, wheels, tires, and coupler solidify the ride. The trailer was created for Orvis, a family-owned retail and mail-order company that’s been around since 1856.
