Thanks! We are very excited. Since you have seen it - you know it will
be a lot of work (and money!) We know it will be worth it. We have
gotten the floor out and had to weld frame but it was not in as bad
shape as we expected. We are starting from scratch with everything. You will definitely see us at a rally one day!
Will be posting some 'progress' photos this week.

Make sure you spend time planning for any changes you might want to make or additions you want to add. So easy to add holding tanks or change plumbing or electrical or axle when you've got it all torn apart.

Can't wait to have mine back together, but I'm trying to take it slow and have it all just the way I want it. Caravanners are great trailers.

cheers,
steve

COOL TRAILER, congrats on the purchase.I am re-upholstering my 04 classic this week -? I am using TECHNIQUE on CATTLEMAN. I am super stoked, as the work they showed me is well above board.The added bonus is they are family owned and they cover all the bases. Upholstery, valences, carpet, re-covering the walls. Doug (the owner), said they also do custom woodwork, incase you want to change something. I will be posting before and after pics for the edification, and pleasure of all interested. P.S. they also do drapes and shades. LOCALLY YOURS,
joe

Steve - thanks for the good wishes and the links. The blog is perfect for
us right now. We need to get and install tanks next and then the floor.
The pictures and advise on the blog are great. Thanks!

There are a few other threads and blogs on Caravanners that are really helpful. Doug Reid, who posted earlier in your thread as Muddy Hollow has a really good thread http://www.airforums.com/forums/f467...mod-27696.html and blog The Reid's 1956 Caravanner Renovation. Another one is Steve Hingtgen from Vintage Trailer Supply who has a blog on his '56 Caravanner 1956 Airstream Caravanner.

I keep going back and rereading restoration threads and I pick up tips every time I do it.

cheers,
steve

please send me your email, i have some more photos for you!
the person who redid our trailer made an almost queen size in the rear. toilet hidden under a box after sink towards back. WE have only a black tank. Not terrific for dry camping but doable for a day or two. We love the dinette and bed and room in the middle. WE have too much closet space and original refurbished frig. our stove is original too. We really like her!

We have what we think are original stove and refrigerator. I am very interested in
floor plans because since we are basically starting from scratch, we can make some
changes if we want. We are adding a grey water tank. I would like to see the
photos....LuckyLindsy@rocketmail.com
Thanks!
