I'm in the middle of a body off on a 59 Cravanner. I'm not 100 % sure this width is the same but I think the width of the deck stayed pretty consistant till the Argosy and wide bodies came out. Ours is 88 inches on the nose. That includes the 1.5 inches under the U-Track on each side.

I just installed a Uniclic (like Pergo) floor in my 68 Caravel. It was twice as hard as it should have been, because my hallway does not have a uniform width.

In other words, the hallway is about 3/4" narrower at one end than the other. This is because the side couch isn't installed exactly square with the kitchen cabinets.

In fact, nothing in my Caravel is plumb or square!

Hmmmmm I'm glad you mentioned that. I will make sure my Wardrobe is square to my Galley when they are reinstalled.
Thanks

thanks for the replys. After installing a section of flooring in the rear and side of my caravel, the outside skin over the wheel well area is wavy. I think maybe the side is pushed out to far or something is out of measurement.

Rl,

So when you installed your your Uniclic flooring did you have to do anything with the drawers under the bench? Also did you run your Uniclic right into the bathroom shower pan or did you use something else in the (small) bathroom floor?

Any chance of a few photos?

Thanks,

Peter
