Rivet Hi there!

I'd like to introduct myself. I am Laurie Hawkins and I live in sunny Southern California with my two kids, three dogs and two cats. I am very new to airstreaming, having just purchased a 1965 17' Caraval in need of a lot of TLC, and am excited/terrified about rehabbing it. The first thing we have done is to remove the really big metal box from the back of the trailer. I still need to check to see what kind of damage the box has done. Tomorrow, we pick up the new axle; I'm so excited!

I have contacted a couple of forum members who have been very patient in answering my questions and, as I progress in my endeavor, I expect to have tons more questions. Thank you for the help you have given me, it is greatly appreciated. Have a great Thanksgiving!

The only job where you start at the top, is digging a hole.

Elbow grease is the best lubricant for success.
