Hey Cliff & Regina,

We have a 65 Caravel, also in the restoration process. You will love this little Airstream. The forum has loads of ideas from others who have restored their Caravels.

We have towed our '65 Caravel over 90K miles, from coast to coast, and stayed in it nearly 1,000 nights since we got it in 2000.

Caravel may be the best use of space Airstream ever designed.

And,,,,,,,,,,they're cute.

Enjoy............
