It's a She

No problem! With all the deception on the net, you never know. Lots of people would try to pass themselves off as Airstream owners. I will remain discreet with my posts until later this week when I have the Title in my hand.

She is nice and is that nice on the other sides too.

I'll have to check with the former owner to begin with. Once I find out what she looks like under her belly pan some colorful names may come to mind quickly.

Looks good to me! I like Caravels...real efficient, almost the same as our GT, just a little bit smaller. We have good friends with one...

Teh Stanchion

It looks to me like someone has replaced the skinny little stanchion that I have seen in other Caravels with a 6x6. Is that stanchion structural? I just don't see anything supporting cabinets elsewhere.

You shouldn't need something that large in there. I don't think it was supposed to have any support there, but if a lot of heavy stuff was put in the cabinets, it could have pulled out of the ceiling.

I looked at your pictures and in one one shot there is a skid that hangs down from the axle. I'm guessing that it is protection for a blowout or loss of the wheel. I,ve never seen anything like that before.

That was not uncommon on single axle 1960's era trailers. Keeps from destroying the underside, bumper, etc.

We don't have the skid plates...but are thinking of adding them when we change out our axle this year. I think they are a good idea for single axle trailers ~

I would definately keep them on the Caravel, especially if you still have the original axle...original '65 Caravel axles are kinda known for having lightweight spindles and occasionally (more often than any other model) snapping off. Thet would be one of the first things on my list of things to do...change your axle. Once that is done...no more worries! Great trailer ~

We were following our friends Caravel when it's spindle decided to give out...not a pretty picture!



You may want to search the forums for more info on this...
