Gallery: Restored 1954 Flying Cloud Airstream in Mint Condition Travels...


We love to see an old beat up bus or van restored to its former glory, but we especially swoon over renovated Airstream trailers – and this one is awesome. Originally used as an old hunting and fishing lodge near Goose Lake, Oregon, this 1954 Flying Cloud Airstream was moved to a factory in Denver, Colorado, where Timeless Travel Trailers gave it a complete (and rather luxurious) facelift for Orvis – one of America’s most renowned outdoors companies.

While we’re not wild about the formica countertops or the leather seating, this better-than-new airstream has many noteworthy qualities that we totally love. In addition to the care taken to hand polish the exterior, the interior includes natural hickory wood furnishings and aged oak flooring, as well as an shiny vintage copper cooking vent and panels! In the bedroom, there’s a hinged mattress/bed that opens to reveal storage below and the shower and toilet are separated into two different spaces.

More than just a cruddy old reno on a lake, this restored trailer’s innards are in mint condition too. Timeless Travel replaced almost all of the running gear, including the axle, brakes, suspension, wheels, tires and more. Plus, the chassis is lifted off the ground to allow for easy off-road clearance! Which means this beauty can venture into the farthest reaches of scenic America.

    As an Associate Editor for Airstream Life Magazine I see a lot of photos of work from Timeless Travel Trailers and it’s all good. Glad to see Orvis bring this beauty back to life!
