son-in-law of an AS owner

Well my mother and father-in-law just bought a 71 caravel. They want me to work on the inside and out to get it looking good. So, I am here to get all of the knowledge that I possibly can so I can help them make the caravel into a very nice trailer that they can be proud of. Hope to learn alot.

Well maybe when my kids are gone the wife and I might. Hopefully by then I will have been able to put that V8 in my Ranger that would be able to pull it. I have plenty of time until then ( my youngest turns 2 Aug 2nd). They are pretty neat setups.

Welcome to the forums.

My little one turns 3 on August 4th, so I know what you mean. Destin is nice this time, and most every time of year!

Hi Josh,
Welcome to the forums. I hope when you get finished, the in-laws will let you borrow the Caravel and take the kids camping with it. Don't wait til they are grown and gone - take them with you! Besides being a blast and giving them some great memories - you and your wife may really appreciate the time you spend together later in life when they are gone!
