1971 Caravel Dinette

Hello, I am trying to piece back together the front dinette of a 1971 Caravel. It is titled a 1971 but has the real wood interior. I have the dinette table. and some of the bottom pieces. I would appreciate any pictues and measurements. From what i have seen so far the table seems off center. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks Jim

Photos of other 1971 Caravels can be found here:

I'm not familiar with the 71s, so some of these trailers might have been modified, but other 1971 owners will have to speak up and advise you on that. Have fun rebuilding your dinette.

1971 Dinette

Thanks Fred. I will be sure to save and do some comparing. I forgot to mention that my stove and sink are on the road side. Unlike some of the 1971's pictured. Thanks again!

I was surprised to see that the 71s have a layout more like the 66-68 Caravels, while the 69-70 Caravels have a layout with a rear gaucho and corner bath. Does yours have a rear bath, but the gaucho on the curbside across from the kitchen? Sounds like you should post some pictures You might have something unique.
