1980 24' Caravelle. Novice airstreamer.

Hey all, I'm glad to be here and hope I don't annoy the forum with my questions. I've acquired a 24' Cavaleere and have numerous questions on how to handle certain restoration tasks that lay ahead. I will post questions with pictures that pertain to the question ... In advance, thank you all for the help.

Your rig is unusual, and made in the lock transition era for Argosy/Airstream. Can you post a photo of what you have? We might be better able to help you with that specific lock.

Welcome you have a rare trailer there is it a double or twin bed? You will find that there is not a lot of info about them out. We got ours in July and have been working on it ever since.

The door lock might be fixable. I sent you a private message.
