Overview Purchased from the side of the road in Lynnwood, Washington in August 2005. Beware! This is what can happen when you spot an Airstream along the side of the road and call your spouse to yell "Airstream!" into the phone - the response just might be, "Well, go look at it!" We towed it home the next day...
Exterior
This Caravel had an early clear coat (which was failing) so we stripped and polished to a reasonable shine.

Interior

Front dinette, mid kitchen, rear street full bed, and rear curb wet bath.

Customization
The former floor heater is now a floor vent! When combined with the Fantastic Fan, cool air moves from under the trailer. This works great when camping in noisy areas - we can keep the windows closed while still ventilating the trailer.

The previous owner had converted the front dinette to a full-time bed, and the rear bed to an office area. He also lived in the trailer for a couple of years with two large dogs. The trailer was gutted and rebuilt to as-close-to-original floor plan as we could get. These are the "before" pictures.
