We should get together and learn from each other.

My cell is 512-639-2569 and the name is Ken.

Thanks
I sent you a friend request, since us Caravel owners in the same Central Texas area should keep in close contact and share any resources in our area. My husband had a Shasta 14' before this and mice got in the walls. He wanted a a/s after that. We have had it in the shop a year and only did a few things. I agree we should get together, Austin is probably good for most. There is a WBCC group unit out of Austin called the "The Heart of Texas Unit." they are what I joined, but have yet to go on trips with them yet. They are also a good resource for this area.

We are really excited to get going on anything we need to do first, our primary concern being of safety.

What do you think we should repair/replace/work on first? We thought we should replace the weather stripping around the windows and check for leaks.

My husband and I are new to the entire experience of trailers but we are excited to take it on
Thank you everyone!
I'm kinda jealous, ya'll's looks alot better than ours! Our PO really didn't take care of her. We bought a major fixer upper...Pictures to ours

We had a blast in our '65 Caravel.

Blog starts here: the adventures of tumbleweed

Wish you many good times in her.

I had a 67 Caravel for 8 years and pulled it thousands of miles. You will never own a better trailer, only one more suited for you at a particular time. It is for camping and traveling with your own home behind you. Don't be afraid of it. Everything 40+ years needs something fixed sooner or later.
