Hi Whippy and welcome. (Especially so since you have a Henry ;D - sounds like a nice tow-rig). Your van, if it is a Caravelle, will likely be a Franklin and not Viscount. I have put below a scan of a Franklin Caravelle. (Original Franklin Brochure I bought off a member of the forum).
If your van looks like that then it will be 1966 (that's my guess). If it does, an extra large welcome for being another Franklin owner. If not, post some pics, or email me one at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post for you.
Hiya Whippy, Read your other post before this latest one. Would you like me to email you a scan of the pic posted above? Cheers, Gristy
PS: the excuse for a fuse panel will likely be in a top cupboard above the sink - right behind where the power inlet is - it may be behind a timber panel/box. Don't expect anything elaborate, you'll be lucky if there's a fuse there at all.

Hi whippy, welcome to the club, good to see another franklin van, is it a 16 footer? has an extra window on the far side to my 14 foot caravelle. A word of advice, have a real good look at the angle trims on the outside edges, if they are loose or the seals deteriorated then you could have water leaks, and with the soft merranti (pacific maple) frame they rot easily. mine is presently in pieces undergoing a rot removal program and re seal plus replacement of water damaged interior panels so will not be on the road for about a year. I will post photos of the progress later in the year. best of luck with your van, it sounds a good one.
