My first post. I just brought a Caravel.

I brought a 67 Caravel yesterday. It was kept in really good condition. It only has very small dent on one panel.

The interior is all original and in really good condition. Only the original vinyl tiles and some section of subfloor are bad.

I will have a lot of questions for you guys!

Welcome to the forums and ask away!

One note, those vinyl tiles are probably asbestos, so extreme care needs to be taken in their removal.

Post some pictures

Congrats and welcome. You can only ask questions if you post pictures :-)

No really - pictures are pretty much a must with an announcement like this! :-)

Yay! Congrats! I love my Caravel, and I think it has the perfect layout for a small trailer. It feels roomy inside, and cozy too!

Your Caravel looks awesome. I will try to keep it in the original form as much as possible. However, I found black mould and mildew on the accordion door. So I took it out and destroyed it the process, which I regret.

I guess an old school Pathfinder will handle it...
Congratulations on your beautiful trailer!

I worried that my Pathfinder couldn't handle it, but it made it from Indiana to Maryland. The underbelly aluminum panel came off on the high way though. I had to screw it to the subfloor using the long screw found to hold down the electrical panel on the same panel.
