For the Christmas List: Orvis 1954 Airstream Flying Cloud

It looks like the Orvis PR Department has finally decided to sell off their weekend retreat. Orvis is acutioning off a fully restored 1954 Airstream Flying cloud. Current bid is $76,000.

From the auction listing:
An American icon restored to its former glory. Originally used as a hunting and fishing lodge near Goose Lake, Oregon, this one-of-a-kind classic has been meticulously restored by Timeless Travel Trailers, the premiere custom travel-trailer builder in North America. Procured specifically for Orvis, this trailer was transported to the company's facility in Denver, Colorado, for a complete artisan rebuild. No detail was overlooked during the ground-up customization, resulting in a trailer that is in better-than-new condition.

The gleaming hand-polished exterior is only the first hint that this trailer is truly special. Inside, the warm and cozy Orvis-inspired cabin is appointed with natural hickory wood, aged oak flooring, copper sheet, and genuine leather. Brand-new running gear has been installed below including a new axle, brakes, suspension, wheels, tires, and coupler. All of the systems have been upgraded to meet or exceed current industry standards. Provisions have been made for adding air conditioning. This trailer is road ready and fully prepared for your next fishing, hunting, or cross-country expedition. For more information and photos, visit Orvis Timeless Airstream

If you win the auction, we call dibs on the top bunk.

You've got to see the interior of that thing to really appreciate it. It's done up like some Orvis lodge. All sorts of wood inlays. Really stunning. Your label on this posting is exactly right, this is a single man's game.
