Rich Luhr of Airstream Life's Caravel for sale

Rich is selling his 1968 Caravel--a rare model of Airstream and a cool small trailer.

It's fully restored (off the frame restoration) by Colin Hyde and Rich.

The trailer was the inspiration for Airstream Life magazine making it a significant trailer in the modern history of Airstream and the company's present-day resurgence.

I think his reserve is $35k which is a great deal for this historically significant trailer.

Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/20227153360...MakeTrack=true

Fixed the link . . . which I pasted in wrong. Rich has blogged a lot about this trailer.

Here are some of his Caravel related blog posts: http://maze.airstreamlife.com/?s=caravel

Ken Faber of Michigan also helped with the restoration, per Rich's blog.

I stumbled across this video (featuring some of Ken's restorations) which is fun. The video includes two Airstreams--though not the Caravel.

After my expensive and aborted restoration attempt last year, this thing looks sweet. Still a little more than I want to spend right now, but a heck of a deal.
