Looking for someone to put a caravel back together! In colorado

Hi all!

I am in the process of purchasing a 67 caravel. When I take possession of it, it will be totally empty with a few interior skin panels off. I am looking for someone experienced in Colorado (I live in Colorado Springs) that I can compensate to put everything back into it. I will have all the interior pieces, etc ready to go back in, I just don't have the time to do it quickly. Is there anyone out there that would be interested in doing this for a reasonable price, or does anyone "know a guy"?? It would not entail any restoration, just putting all the pieces back in. I would also be available if needed to help with putting large items back in.

Stream on!!

Oh boy.
Timeless travel trailers is in CO.
I am reminded of the saying ... You can have it done right, you can have it done quick and have it done CHEAP... But not all of the above. If you want to slap it back together FAST and CHEAP it won't be done right.

If its all apart why not fix it correctly while its apart? Did the seller replace electric, plumbing? Floor? Why did they pull it all out if it didn't need this work?

We just restored a 69 caravel and there was a lot of "issues" that popped up in the process. Be prepared for some bumps on the way. It sounds like you are busy, but we made our restoration a family project and made memories on the way! You can check out our reno at Good luck and have fun!

It was pulled apart to replace the floor, blast and paint the frame. Electrical, etc is all fine. I thought of having timeless do it as an option as well. I was hoping there was someone around Colorado Springs that might be able to do the work.
