1953 Airstream Flying Cloud 21 - New Mexico Private Seller

4 months ago Airstream Trailers FOR SALE  Albuquerque, NM 1300 Views 1 Watching
Year: 1953
Make: Airstream
Model: Flying Cloud
Trim: 13 panel w/ Ohio VIN
Length: 21
Country:US
State or Province:NM
City: Albuquerque
Type of Sale:Private Seller
Listed:4 months ago
SOLD!

Given age and condition and model, I estimate that market value during high season is 16000. I am accepting reasonable offers at this time.

I've included lots of pictures of my unrestored vintage Flying Cloud as I am not an expert on evaluating condition or OEM . I've owned and used the cloud since 2018 and specifically lived in it full time for about 2 years while stationed at Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis New Mexico. From what little background info I have I figure this Airstream spent the last couple decades in the US Southwest primarily New Mexico and Southwest Texas .

It pulls easily, shiny exterior is in good condition showing some scratches and a few small dents at the front skirt area as shown in pics. Aftermarket A/C looks to have been installed professionally many years ago and kept me cool even in 100 degree days. The exterior A/C cowling is ugly and there is evidence that several vents have been relocated, resulting in the openings being fixed with aluminum panels and rivets. Doorway threshold / step has sagging and stressed metal and has been repaired with rivets to functional state.

120VAC wiring functions as well as interior aftermarket lights. Gas stove is plumbed to two front mounted vtg tanks. They had some gas pressure still in the tanks when I tested the stove. They are empty now and would need updated valves in order to get them refilled. Original split rims were replaced with generic steel rims and 7 ply radial tires. Toilet and grey water tank are missing.

All windows, doors, and vents function. Weather striping on all windows and doors is new, but not OEM. This doesn't matter visually aside from the door gasket which is not the appropriate replacement type. Weather tightness unintentionally tested over 100 times in torrential rain, 70 MPH winds, and dust storms with no leaks!

Running lights and taillights not original, intermittent functioning, and ugly.

After purchasing in Sept 2018 I lost the title and bill of sale. However, with significant expense, effort to get multiple DMV database checks, and tons of red tape, I obtained a Vermont registration/title and license plate.

I am considering keeping this trailer and stripping out the interior and replacing floor and give to my son for a project. However, He'd be just as happy with a cargo trailer and I'd rather see this live on as a camper/glamper.
