YEAH!! THe search is over, we found a '65 Caravel

After about a year of searching we finally found a Caravel. Its a 1965 second owner(barely) trailer. Amazingly we agreed to buy it without me actually seeing it myself. With some help from fellow Forum member, they checked it out for me, and assured me its a good prospect.

Supposed to get actual pictures tonight.

Now I need a hitch and wiring and help learning how to use it....

So the fun Begins...

Sometimes when you find a little trailer, you have to pounce on it! I hope it's what you expect. Can't wait to see pictures!

And Yet Another Caravel ....

Congrats and welcome to the Caravel Clan. You'll love her (or him) as we did at first sight.

Good Luck

Turns out that it was indeed the same trailer. I've forwarded all of the pictures I took to Dieter. Here is one of them

What a honey. Split rims or not, I wouldn't trust 'em. Get new ones before the trip home. How far is home by the way?
