d'oh! Didn't notice the link to the other pictures when I was reading on my phone. The photos show the center bath/rear bed layout. It looks like that bed takes up all the space back there!

I say go for it sure it will cost a fortune if you pay somebody to do it for you but you are not going that route. as for the long ride home hook up and pull that beast of course after you replace the tires and repack the bearings!! You can do all of this stuff and it sounds like you really want to! In the mean time I will sit back drink a soda and read of your exploits! Okay I will be working on the caravel!! Keep us in the loop please and if I can help let me know!
Gotta get busy! Have a great day! Now where did I put those revits?

Thanks for all of your great advice! My wife and I are feeling a bit overwhelmed over the amount of effort and work it will take to bring this nice trailer up to speed. We may try to find a trailer that is closer to where we live and a bit less of a renovation project. You've all been so kind and helpful. Again, thanks so much!!

Rear bedroom Soveriegns are rare. they bring more money. That trailer could be towed home with new tires if they are needed, and greased bearings. The axles thing gets blown out of proportion ...the trailer will ride harder but the axles will not break.

Please no one start a war of words here, I have had 4 Airstreams.

All my favorite problems and trailers have been close to home.

Click on the link to see a picture of the Sioux River falls near my home.
Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
