Restoration of 1968 Caravelle - Appreciate Any & All Suggestions, etc

My husband and I have owned several Airstreams over the years but our favorite remains the 1968 Caravelle that we have had for ten years. It's in very good condition and everything works. We are looking to redo interior and bath. Just starting to research possibilities and alternatives.

Welcome to the forum! We love our caravel too, but this is only our fifth year. Hopefully we'll still love it as much after ten!

You'l find lots of ideas here, from modernizations, to restorations. Mine is something in between - it looks vintage at first glance, but the appliances are all new. There's something for everyone here.

Welcome! Have you seen this site?

Our 1965 Caravel - Index

It describes the restoration of a 1965 Caravel.
I'm sure you'll find lots of great ideas here.

Here's part of my effort on my '70 Caravel. Other threads show the new axle and fixing the banana skins.

Enjoy. Post your photos.
