That is one sweet Caravel. Love the colors and finishes on all the surfaces including the shiny one on the outside. When can I move in?

Our '65 Caravel

We got our '65 Caravel in 2000. We use it lots. We have re-done the flooring, upholstery, changed to 15"wheels, changed to golf cart batteries, installed an inverter, flat HDTV, changed the front goucho to a dinette, just lots of goodies.

The trailer was not original when we got it. I am a Street Rodder, so original is OK, but updated us most always better, ...........and safer.

Very nice Jim. I too play with old cars and have restified our Flying Cloud. I like to look at originals but want all the amenities of new and enjoy the challenge of having it still look "new old".

If I remember right you've also put a lot of miles under those wheels since you redid it.

Thanks for sharing the photos

Barry

Yes, we have towed "Lucky" somewhere around 80 thousamd miles. In 2003 we spent 223 nights on the road. One trip that year included visiting 28 states, DC and Niagara Falls, Canada. That one trip was over 9,000 miles, but only accounted for 87 of the 223 nights on the road. Others were short stays at car events and the like.

Forward Storage

Jim-

Great job on the Caravel!

Can you give us a little detail on the storage you installed forward of the dinette? How deep is it and how deep are the seats? Are you happy with it?

We're considering the same idea.

Thanks,

John
