1980 Airstream Caravelle 20 - Utah

A totally renovated 1980 20' Airstream Caravelle. This has undergone a shell off renovation. This is a very rare model that was only made in 1980. They are narrower and lighter than almost any other Airstream. The floor was replaced with 1/8" plate aluminum and the entire interior was redone with aluminum with 13 panel endcaps. It has been designed with extensive custom metalwork and woodwork to sleep 4 with a bunkbed and a full size bed. The bathroom is equipped with a full shower, composting toilet, a 40 gallon grey tank, 32 gallons of fresh water plus a 4 gallon drinking water. There is 200 watts of solar mounted permanently on the roof and 2 golf cart batteries. The total dry weight is only 2600 pounds. The axle has been replaced with a new torsion axle with a 3500 lb rating. If the tongue weight is 500 pounds, that gives at least 1000 pounds of gear, water, etc that you can carry in the camper. It was polished this week to a mirror finish.

There are a few things that are being finished up in the next few weeks. I'll update this site as they are completed.
