Fly Fishing Camp / Guest House

Our high-style, yet cozy, 1959 Flying Cloud is turn-key ready for her next adventure, wherever
that may take her. Rejuvenated from the frame up, she began her new life with us in 2004 after an extensive remodel as a mobile fly-fishing camp by Iowa Boys, vintage trailer specialists, in North Hollywood, Ca. Blue-ribbon trout streams beckoned her to Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, Vancouver Island, and other destinations where she provided luxury accommodations, both in campgrounds and off-grid in remote, idyllic natural settings. While we toyed with the idea of restoring her to her original design, we recognized that 1959-era comforts and conveniences were not for us. We wanted her to complement our lifestyle, taste, convenience and utility.
So, upgrade we did, with all the comforts of home and then some, including hi-end sound and entertainment systems. When not on the road, she was a perfect guest house for visiting family and friends, functioning equally well as an office on occasion. We will miss our Fly Rig, remembering all the experiences and destinations we shared over the years, but she is ready to go—polished, fully equipped, all systems checked and running by an RV specialist 2/5/22. With all her interior beauty, she tows like a dream, smooth and steady for the road ahead.
Purchased from second owner in 2002. Rejuvenated in 2004 by Iowa Boys, LLC in North Hollywood, Ca., vintage trailer restoration specialists serving the movie and TV industry.

Consider these tips in order to send or receive payment safely.
Know the vehicle’s market value
Be very suspicious of any vehicle priced significantly below market value. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Confirm contact information
Verify the seller’s physical address and phone number BEFORE SENDING PAYMENT. Zip codes, area codes and addresses should match up.
Use email wisely
Do not send personal or financial information (such as your social security number, credit card number or checking account number) to a seller via email. Email communications are not secure.
Do not use money transfer services, such as Western Union to pay for online purchases
Even Western Union recommends against using their service or similar services to pay for online purchases. Be cautious about any seller who will only accept a money transfer.
If using an escrow service for payment, make sure it is a reputable, valid escrow service
Some buyers, purchasing outside their local area, may consider using an escrow service. If so, make sure it is a legitimate service. Go directly to the website of the escrow service. Do NOT go to an escrow service through a link in the seller’s e-mail or use a service based on a referral from the seller. Check the web address to make sure you are at the valid website.
Get a detailed receipt
Ask the seller for a receipt that states whether the Airstream is being sold with a warranty or “as is.”
Get title to the vehicle
Make sure you know what’s required in your state to transfer title to the vehicle you’re buying.
Confirm contact information
Be wary of buyers willing to purchase your item sight-unseen, especially buyers located overseas. Always verify the buyer’s street address and valid phone number.
Verify that a certified check is genuine
Verify authenticity with the issuing bank prior to depositing a certified check. Make sure the account contains sufficient funds and the issuing bank guarantees payment on the check. Once deposited in your account, it may take a week or more for the check to clear. Acceptance by your bank does not guarantee the check is valid and funds are available. A cashier’s check can take 30 days or more to clear.
Secure payment first
Do not transfer the title until you have payment in hand at the agreed upon price (and you have verified that the payment is valid.
Beware of overpayment or other complicated payment schemes
Do not agree to any plan where the buyer asks to send a check for more than the sale price and requests that the seller refund the difference. Be suspicious of any buyer who proposes making payment through a friend or agent of the buyer.
