OK, I have stepped off into the deep end and can't wait to begin. My wife and I have been campers (tent) in the past and I enjoy the outdoors (hunting). We decided that we needed a camper and have been looking for a while. The modern shoe box on wheels just does not do it for us so we went vintage airstream. I have alot to learn and will rebuild this one as close to original as possible but have to make it functional. Our first tow was this week from IN, where we bought her, to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, where we live. She towed like a dream, but I have concerns about the 40+ year old axle (replace or not???). All advice will be welcome. My first approace will be to look into the safety aspect of the trailer (towing, brakes, electrical) and then the creature comforts will follow. This 1966 Caravel
is 95% original and is in need of alot of TLC but is strong and ready to shine.
