Decorating. A '69. Really?

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Yes Decorating! To dress up, Refurbish, Brighten up(Websters Dictionary). Obviously you do not have a lady in your life! Why is an Excella owner posting in a Caravel Forum?
Thanks for your input~~

It is presently snowing & wind is blowing pretty hard but, once things settle down, I will head out to the Airstream and get you some measurements. I know how you feel: the 1st winter I had my Caravel my mother sewed-up all new curtains and new upholstery. It was exciting, even though I knew I'd have to wait until Spring to install them.
So, if nobody else gets you this information (in the meantime) I'll reply as soon I get the needed info.

Hi Dennis,

Can't help you with dimensions, but can say welcome to the forum.
You will find tons of valuable information here, more than you can imagine!
And lots of personal opinions also. LOL!
This is a great time to get some necessities out of the way before you tackle larger items.

Congrats, and post lots of pictures.

Replacement parts

Here are two sources (attached), both have a good inventory of items for your. I have bought axles, toilet, electrical items, waste valves and fittings, door hardware etc from both sources.

Good luck and enjoy your trailer.
