I bought my Caravel more than twenty years ago and used it as my “away place”, a perfect spot for a professor to think and write. It didn’t travel but served its purpose well. In 2012 I had it restored by the top-notch crew at Sierra Trailer Restoration. See what people say about them here:
You can see week-by-week what they did for me:

Their work included new floor, water heater, PEX plumbing, wiring, new axel, air conditioner, new surfaces, mini-blinds, inverter and more. There is a new dual fuel refrigerator and electric hitch. I had new cushions made for the gauchos in a neutral upholstery fabric, and I added a rear video camera so you can see behind the rig when towing. The bath is in good shape and did not need changing out. I added a blueboy black water tank to extend the use of the shower/toilet.
I removed the heater (cabin easily heats with the burners on) for more storage.
This Caravel looks similar to the original but it is better than ever and ready to roll on good tires and a new spare, with a solid floor and axel. More info here:
Does it tow? Yes, it is easy to tow with its 17’ single axel and weighs 2300 pounds. I took it on its only trip with me to Burning Man and the Black Rock Desert of NV in 2017. It was a champ and got lots of attention.
What’s wrong with it? The stoves work great but the oven needs repair. The door latches but needs a new lock.
This is a very good, ready-to-roll vintage Airstream in a desirable small size. It is decorated simply so it can change its spirit with new decorations. With one child in NYC and another in Australia I’ve decided on other transport!
PLEASE CHECK THE LINKS FOR MORE INFORMATION. If it looks like it might be for you, please message me and come look at it in Davis CA, near Sacramento. You will like what you see. This is an AS IS sale with a $500 deposit due immediately on agreement. Please no scammers (unfortunately been there).
