This listing is for a completely turn-key, meticulously cared for, 2011, 23ft FB Flying Cloud. It has been newly inspected, passed easily, and now has an August 2023, VT inspection sticker. It has freshly packed bearings and also recently got a brake job. I can’t say enough great things about this rig. We are the second owners, and it’s as clean as the day we bought back in 2017. When we were first searching for Airstreams, we were looking at new 2018’s. As luck sometimes happens, this beauty shows up on the lot. It had similar/Identical features and trim as the 2018’s did. It was gently used, but looked brand new. So we opted for the 2011. We have owned 3 other brands of trailers from 20ft up to 33ft and have found this one to be the best for comfort, durability, highway travel control, backing up and entering/exiting gas stations (an overlooked detail). Airstreams are worth every penny.

After a few years with this model, we decided to add a few things. We added a custom steel bike rack that holds two bikes. The system has a pair of Thule Circuit Low-Profile Fork-Mount bike racks with the locking cores and keys. We are including the bike cover (as seen in the pictures, but, of course, not the bikes). We also removed the stock dinette… which we found uncomfortable and built a new eating/lounging area. The two chair design is much more comfortable for sipping your morning coffee, and can be used to dine at and as a post dinner reading nook or cozy place to enjoy a movie on the new flat screen TV. We also would slip those chairs outside and lounge with them in the evening air. Be sure to check out the rivet details on the new chairs… they truly belong in an Airstream. Looks awesome and way more comfortable! Of course, the original dinette seating, table and propane tank cover have all been preserved and are included in the sale. They are easily available to return to its original state.

We updated the TV, added a couple of the oval Zarcor window shades, and added most of the Stainless Steel exterior upgrades (the exhaust fan cover, the exterior shower and the hot water tank cover). We added a low flow, high pressure interior shower head that allows you to have great water pressure while preserving your tanks’ water reserves. One of the most fun things we did was to add exterior, indirect back-lighting behind the rock guards, underneath the body and by the stairs. I liked green (as seen in the pictures)… but you can choose other color schemes. You can actually set the lights to react to music. Pretty fun… but looks awesome at dusk.

Everything works great. The air conditioning and heating system work seamlessly and are controlled on a digital thermostat. The gray and black water sensors work perfectly, but the fresh water tank sensor does its best. It’s mostly correct, but sometimes offers false readings. As many of us know… accurate sensor reading is one of every RV’s struggles. We also upgraded to a new mattress (medium stiffness) last year. Super comfortable. The trailer has been routinely checked for leaks in a rain room and has no leaks, no mold and no water damage anywhere.

In this sale, I am also including all of the electrical cords and accessories. Of course, the original 30 amp electrical cord is included, but I am also including a 25 foot, 30 amp extension cord. There is an included 120V adapter, a 30 amp surge protector (a must have) and an older coaxial cable for TV hook ups. I stored all of these things in a tote (also included).

The sale also includes everything needed for the water hook ups: A fresh water hose, an “L” hose attachment (for adding water into the fresh water tank), and a new water filter. A second tote is included to store your water items.

The sale also includes everything you will need for the gray/black water sewer. Two Rhino, expandable hoses, an “L” sewer attachment, a clear extender (used at the beginning of the sewer pipe so you can easily see when you are done draining (a little secret given to me by a seasoned RV’er at the dealership)). I am also including a sewer hose ramp/guide and an extra attachment for odd RV site sewer pipes.

Also included is an RV leveling system (the yellow squares) and an actual bubble level to keep on hand. There are two wheel chocks and an expandable road cone. The manual tools for the leveling system and front jack are included as well as a 18V drill tool (for the leveling system). The trailer has a retractable Zip Dee awning. The Zip Dee awning tool is included. I have included a winterizing kit that is currently attached to the pump, and is usable with a turn of a knob. So much easier to winterize. I am also including four wheel covers that protect the tires from sun damage and snow.

On top of all of that… I am including the 1000 lb, sway control system that attaches to your tow vehicle (another must have for effortless towing). Makes driving this Airstream an absolute dream.

Unfortunately, there is scratch on one of the rear back panels. I scraped on something backing up… Grrrr!! No structural damage, and the interior was completely unaffected. We have been able to hide the scratch with a decal (seen in the last picture in the gallery).

I have included everything you will need to park and camp as soon as you drive away. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.
