Did it suffer from the exterior damage? The frame damage I had repaired was from both water and the axle failure. So he buys it puts 6 to 8k into it he may want to use it and not flip it. All I am saying is that it will need so serious work and if that is not what he wants to do than why invest that kind of money into it. I have spent 9k on ours and I am not even close to finished let alone camp in! Would I take on that project? Only if I could get the trailer for 750. Or less. The shell is leaking with that damage or has been totally Polly coated on the inner shell. The axle needs to be checked and how many band aids are there. You have a beautiful caravel
and ours will at least rival yours when finished and my kids may sell it when I croak but not before.
Well the bids have ended. It doesn't look like many people are going to get a Caravel
for $750 in today's dream to own a small vintage Airstream. Saying that 12k may be high for this one. But the Caravel
"SHELL" sold for $8000 WOW. Thank god I own mine because the way these prices are going my dream would be dead
