Thanks. Finally got around to checking this forum. It's very big and hard at finding the questions I need answered-but I'll keep plugging along. I did order an axle from Inland RV 4 weeks ago- hopefully it comes in this week. I figured I do the welding on the floor when I get the axle. Floor had some soft spots- tore it up- frame was real bad. It's odd how much deterioration the frame has on this Caravel. That 58 serro scotty in my profile pic sat in the woods for over 30 years and the only frame rot it had was the tongue.
I had to replace the axle on our Caravel due to a failure. The guy who did the ordering did it wrong, so I would not suggest using him. I am about to order new axles for our 1983 Excella. I will call Andy at Inland RV in Riverside, CA and get the scoop from him. I think he can order using your vin number. I think he can also have it sent direct, not sure, but you may want to give him a call. Changing the axel on a Caravel is a piece of cake.
I came across your name from the "cool custom improvements." Cool idea, by the way, I might give that a try later on. Right now, my question is about tires, wheels, and possibly a new axle. In need of recommendations for my newly bought 65 Caravel-which is still sitting at its current location at the owners summer cottage. I've been on this forum since 9pm. I keep getting sidetracked. So if ya could give me any info. I thankyou.
