1966 Airstream Caravel 17 - Washington

Title: 1966 Airstream Caravel 17 - Washington
I just posted a new ad on Airstream Classifieds.

Fully restored and lovingly refurbished 1966 Caravel, ready for adventure. Compact, lightweight and easy to tow.

Exterior Details:
• Professionally stripped, polished to mirror finish, and sealed (August 2017)
• Body in great condition: only very minor dings and blemishes
• Taken down to the frame and restored from the ground up
• New marine Ply floor with two coats of Por15 Rust Preventive sealer
• 17-feet long, hitch to bumper
• Fresh exterior running lights
• Moon hubcaps
• Trailer tires are in excellent condition; New full-size spare tire included

Interior Details:
• New maple carpentry throughout
• New, modern-finish countertop and tabletop
• New upholstery (high density foam and Sunbrella fabric) and curtains
• New 3-way Norcold N300x refrigerator (runs on electricity, propane or battery)
• New Dometic toilet
• New Fan-Tastic ceiling fan (professionally installed in 2017)
• All windows in excellent condition
• Original and true-to-original hardware and lighting fixtures
• Refinished, silver-colored refrigerator vent
• Original walls/ceiling with resurfaced bathroom area
• Original Magic Chef stove (gas cooking!)
• Grey-water and fresh-water tanks
• Seating converts easily to two pullout beds (both 73x49)
• Optional pillow-top mattress for larger bed (for supreme comfort)
• Convertible, hide-away dinette table
• New curtains
• Lots of upper & lower storage space including two closets
• Blue Marmoleum floor just like original
• Airstream artwork (on wall)
• Airstream owner’s manual and manuals for new fridge and toilet
• Pet-, smoke- and smell-free

Power, etc:
• New Optima Blue-top RV 12-volt battery
• Intellipower Power Converter/Battery Wizard
• New Electrical 7Pin connector cable from hitch to battery
• Two Propane tanks
• Water hose, extension power cord, blocks, and leveling jacks

We’ve never needed the furnace or hot water heater but believe they work. (Hot water heater has been sandblasted/restored and new water pump installed by previous owner.) We intended to get an on-demand water heater but didn’t get to it.

Clean title. Delivery in the Pacific Northwest and to California can be negotiated.
Many more photos available, including lots of pre- and mid-restoration photos.
