Ownership History: This Airstream Trailer was purchased on 2/16/18 from Universal Marine and RV in Rochester, MN. It was my understanding that the trailer was owned for only a short time by a physician. He had decided that this trailer did not fit the size or needs of his family. My wife and I have owned the trailer ever since and have put very few road miles on it. I believe the trailer to have less than 5000 miles on it at this time.

Why did you select this model?: It is just my wife and I and we thought it would be a very good size for the two of us to take on fishing trips. We were living in Loveland, CO at the time and took it to Steamboat Springs, the Gunnison area and to camp sites in Nebraska and Wyoming.

Why are you selling?: As my wife and I have aged, we have decided that pulling a trailer has put more of a demand on us physically than we desired and we both have health issues that make camping harder and harder to do.

Any additional owner comments?: This 2018 Airstream Flying Cloud FB23 has seen very little use in its lifetime. I personally feel that it is an easy trailer to tow and it has less than 5000 road miles on it. It is perfect for two people, all equipment is in good working order and I would not hesitate to pull this unit across country, if desired. My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed this trailer and have taken great pride in owning it. We have taken good care of it and feel that it is extremely road worthy. As with life, our direction has now taken a turn and we need to pause our adventures in camping. It has been a great experience for us and to own an Airstream is something that we have always wanted to do. We hope that the new owners will appreciate it as much as we have and that they truly enjoy their Airstream experience as much as we did.
