This is how I did ours. I used the oroginal table, and material from the goucho. I added the storage cabinet under the front window and made the dinette for two as a Caravel is really for two.

In the top of the cabinet I added two 110v and two 12v outlets.

I had to buy one sheet each 4x8 x 1/8 burch door skin and 4x8 x 3/8 mahogany panel. Two 2x2 x 8' for frameing, two plastic 8' double window channels for the door slides in the front of the cabinet.

Total cost of wood and electrical was under $200.00.

We like it much better than the original arrangement.

Dang, we were going to put that route 66 fabric in ours since it is a '66 Caravel! Looks nice.
