Back in the day, our Caravel fit SIX people!
People think that a family of four living full-time in a 17-foot trailer is nuts, those that know we've added another person (Barbara, my mother-in-law) are incredulous. But in 1968, Airstream advertised its cute little Caravel as luxuriously sleeping SIX people.
See attached brochure as evidence.
Thanks to Airstream Life magazine publisher Rich Luhr for passing this on. His Caravel, a painstakingly restored one from 1968, is to be exhibited at this month's Modernism Week in Palm Springs, California.
