That's a lovely trailer, thanks for putting up pictures. I found it very interesting comparing your interior with our Ohio-built '61 - surprisingly similar but yours is noticeably more 'refined' (in a good way).

I have a quick question for you if that's okay, what is the switch in the bathroom for? We have one in our '61 and I can't fathom what it's meant to do!

I have a 115v switch like that in my galley that turns on the water pump. That's what I was thinking when I saw it.

Hmm, ya know I have no idea yet. I have been a good girl and not started puttering with her yet. I made myself park her in a field next to my buddy's 54 Boles Areo until I get the Safari restored to sell. As much as I want all three my budget does not allow for it. I spread myself thin to get her ☺ I'll post it once I start exploring her more and figure it out, but in the meantime if anyone else knows can you fill us in? Maybe for the pressure tank or something...This girls got all her original guts I can't wait to see what will work or be restorable to work. (Except the fridge us AWOL...anyone know what fridge she should have?)

Congrats on your great "new to you" find. She looks in very good shape. Of course we are a little biased.

Our first was a 65 TWind and when we picked up the 62 Ambsdr the plan was to sell the TWind but that is not happening now seems we were more attached that we realized.

Hittenstiehl, there is absolutely nothing wrong with having two trailers, Variety is the spice of life ;-)
Of course I have my teenage son thinks I am completely nuts and keeps picking on me (facetiously). Although I think I may have finally shut him up this week by showing him the values that some of the excellent condition ones are pulling online. Know the little bugger is probably thinking ...hmm, future inheritance, but he's stopped bugging me :-)

Congrats on the great find. She looks real good. They made numerous changes from your 64 to my 66.
I have two, but would love to have also a 66-68 Caravel.
