Beautifully Restored Vintage 1966 Airstream Caravel-17’

This is a unique opportunity. This gem is beautifully restored to its original-like new condition. Vintage Airstreams in this condition are very rare and in high demand. With an overall length of just 17 feet and a dry weight of just over 2,150 lbs, this Caravel is easy to tow and small enough to be allowed in national or state park campgrounds. Features unique to the 1966-1968 Airstream Caravels are the curved corning frameless windows giving it a very streamlined profile.
The Caravel features an open lounge-type floor plan that is great for entertaining or relaxing. It is very roomy for its size. It sleeps up to 4. The gaucho sofa converts into a bed for 2 adults and the front dinette area converts into a single bed. Cute and functional full bathroom shower, vanity sink, and toilet with privacy folding divider door. Lots of upper & lower storage space including two wardrobe closets.
Spa blue upholstered cushions and double-sided pinch pleated coordinating curtains. The interior built-in cabinets and wood walls were completely refinished in 2019 using custom mixed wood stain to match their original color and sealed with eco-friendly semi-gloss polyurethane to create a very durable gloss finish. All cabinet latches and hinges were reconditioned and polished to original shine.
Updates completed in 2019 include an updated 12v and 120v electrical systems, new 45 amp power converter, USB ports, accessory ports, 12-volt battery meter along with new trailer 7 pin connecter, and wiring, and all new exterior running lights.
The propane system has been completely serviced and two 20 lbs propane tanks installed. Faucets, valve stems, and drains have been rebuilt and are all original. The main holding tank has been serviced and a 3″ valve added. 6-gallon propane water heater installed. Large freshwater holding tank along with a sure flow on-demand water pump. Beautifully restored original Duraflame furnace. Newer 2way electric and propane refrigerator/freezer.
All interior light fixtures are original and have been restored, rebuilt, and polished. Main cabin lights are LED. Original Magic Chef stove/oven looks amazing. A custom-made Bamboo cutting board covers the original sink when more counter space is needed. Mechanical window hardware has been rebuilt, replaced, and polished. Whitewall tires, coated rims & hubcaps.
Tiger strand bamboo hardwood floors installed in 2019. Bamboo looks amazing and is one of the hardest woods on the planet that will provide many years of Maintenance-free service.
Most recent upgrades include a new Coleman 13.5 A/C with heat strip and cond pump, upgraded breaker panel, circuit breakers 20amp & 30 amp, and 30amp cord. Installed new axle, shocks, and breaks. Underbelly secured and sealed. Sealed wheel wells and installed a sway control mount & bar. Custom spare tire mount installed which includes lock, tire cover and adjustable latch. Replaced plumbing stack covers. Awning rail installed and grey and white custom awning/poles made. All window gasket seals replaced. Installed a new deadbolt on the front door.
All trailer accessories needed to start camping day 1 are included. Anderson trailer bag, stabilizer equipment, aluminum jack stands, tough chock, Master Hitch latch & coupler locks, trailer hitch ball and stabilizer ball, Rhino sewer hose, and 32-gallon portable tank.
Meticulously maintained. Kept in covered storage. Professionally appraised in 2020.
