1966 Caravel. Proud new owner. (I think?) Needs work, of course. Good bones but....Anybody know where to get a rear bumper and hose storage box. For some reason ours was cut off!!!!! Also need side window glass, street side. Any ideas??? Thanks! Jack

You'll have to fabricate something if you want to get the storage box back, but VTS sells trailer bumpers

Hi, we have the same trailer. We are repairing our bumper and storage box too. The bumper was broken on one side and everything basically hanging on by the other side. Yours may have rusted off!

VTS has side and front or rear Windows last time I checked.

Of course, the Caravelle has curved side glass, so it may be hard to find anywhere else.

Good luck with your project.

I think Andy (Inland) still has the Corning replacement glass.

Jcklfnd is there anything else that needed work? I have a Caravel also that needs a full restoration (minus the skins they're in good shape).
