The couch converts into a bed and there is a small storage area above the couch. In the rear of the trailer is a double sized bed, there are two drawers under the bed and an outlet, light and vintage magazine rack in that area. Next to the double bed is a small three drawer stand. Across from the double bed are two oversized closets. When both closet doors are open an extender panel makes it possible to close off the rear of the trailer for privacy (original). There is also a broom closet/pantry adjacent to the closets.

2019 RESTORATION
Wayward Trailers in Salem, Oregon torn down and rebuilt the interior of the trailer from May to August 2019. Hannah Taylor and Jon Knowles completed the work. The phone number is 503-871-2798. The restoration included all new electrical wiring, all new PEX pipes and a new plastic water tank. The entire inside of the trailer has new insulation and new Zolatone type vintage style wall material (consistent with original materials used). The new subfloor is covered with new Marmoleum vintage style linoleum (consistent with original materials used).
Miscellaneous items include two vintage ice trays and two books, Vintage Camper Trailers and The History of the Land Yacht.
Our trailer was always kept under a metal awning cover and only used once after the 2019 restoration.

We are selling this lovingly restored vintage trailer in our retirement as we have finally slowed down. We have enjoyed traveling and participating in vintage trailer shows up and down the West Coast. We spent a lot of time and money restoring this 1957 Flying Cloud with true to the era components and modern upgrades (like the refurbished original Servel fridge upgraded and converted to dometic fridge), and have always kept the trailer covered. During restoration everything was inspected, repaired or replaced, new insulation, new belly pan, new electrical, new plumbing and much more. This trailer is roadworthy for another 65 years.
