I found a '76 Caravaner last week sitting in a field and asked the owner about it. It is in sad shape has been sitting ther for about four years and the inside is trashed. Well I was telling my nieghbor and he told me that he was wanting to get an Airstream and would like a project so he went and looked at it and is going to adopt it and bring it back to life. He was wanting to know if I could find a floor plan for this model, so here goes! Anyone have the floor plans?

the one advantage

to having a bedroom is that when all those folks who are still tenting come piling in to your cozy monocoque you can feign some decorum by closing the br door till the bed is made.

Our first RV was a 25 foot 1976 Caravanner. The only drawback we found was that each morning all the bedding had to be put up and the sofa returned to its seating configuration. It never failed that if we left the sofa as a bed with the cover and pillows, someone who was intrigued by the AS wanted to look at the inside. A lot of bedmaking! It was a great floorplan except that we bumped into each other a lot coming and going through the walkway. Lots more room to entertain because of the two sofas. Overall, worked great for us.

ticki2 you made me go looking...no floor plans here either I have several manuals mostly from the mid 70's and not a one of them shows the Caravaner. It has always been a favorite of mine too. I did manage to find you a better scan from a 1978 brochure though...

Have to ask

I have a 75 Caravanner and love it. Been in the family since new. the difference between mine and the one pictured in the Vintage archives is that mine has a door that opens on the right side. Not the "suicide door" of others. Mine also has a storage dinette along the curb side in place of the gaucho.

re: my link above to bigshinything's gallery -- it seems to have been emptied. Take a look at his old http://www.airforums.com/forum...nner-8904.html thread for some interior pics. The only thing approaching that nice a gathering place are the new 25' & 27' FB models! I was so impressed by the polish that I saved the following photo from his old photo gallery:
