It has an air conditioning unit which is known to be in need of repair or replacement. It has a blue and white awning which the seller states is in close to "like new" condition and works perfectly. It has a documented history, has always been properly maintained and stored in a climate controlled collectors garage when not in use. We sold this Airstream Caravel to the current owner who has put less than 2,000 miles of travel mileage during his ten years of stewardship. The story posted below is from the previous owner. "This 1969 Airstream Caravel trailer was purchased from an owner who used it infrequently for about 3 years to go up north. He reported that he purchased it from the original owners who had used it for vacations as a young couple but did not use it as they aged. The trailer was my 60th birthday present (9/2001). As a youth, my family traveled the country for 6 weeks each summer in a small teardrop trailer constructed with WWII surplus aluminum. My parents eventually sold the teardrop and purchased an Airstream Caravel trailer, thus this trailer had great sentimental appeal for me. After I purchased the trailer, I took it to the Airstream factory in Jackson Center, Ohio to restore it to its original and safe condition. The work they completed included: alignment of the wheels, repack bearings, check brakes, replace all cushions and recover with new fabric, replace all curtains, replace rubber weather stripping, adjust windows, rebuild frame, replace bottle gas containers and housing, replace linoleum, replace three segments of exterior skin, replace steps, replace all running lights and taillights. In addition, I installed a new battery, water pump, break away switch, and tires. I took my family on two extended vacations with the trailer. In 2002, we spent a month touring the northwest, including Seattle, and Glacier, Yellowstone, Mt. Rushmore, Theodore Roosevelt, and Grand Teton National Parks. In 2004, we spent 3 1/2 weeks touring the northeast. We have loved living in the trailer. The reason we want to sell it is that we would like to spend more time at our newly constructed vacation home on Lake Michigan."
