Hello & Welcome:


This is the story of our 1972 AS Sovereign 31ft, we acquired in May 2008. We are the 3rd owners on record. Our AS was built at the Santa Fe Springs, CA plant; which has since closed. It was in pretty good condition when purchased. It still needs repairs and renovations as most do of this vintage.

Stay tuned and check back frequently to check on our progress, as we continue on our journey to “Infinity & Beyond”.

Happy Trailering !!!

Mary, Steve & Stephen

Vacation June/July 2008, Stop #4, Flagstaff, AZ: The Grand Canyon

Posted 07-09-2009 at 05:49 AM by Maryw164 (Welcome to our insanity!)

Flagstaff also had great trees and landscape. We went to the Grand Canyon, or as my teenage son calls it : "the big hole in the ground" . I had been there many years ago, but Steve & Stephen had not. We rode the train there from the depot. The increased elevation was fun to deal with while walking the trails, as was the heat (100f). The train ride was fun, but our steam locomotive broke down about 45 min. into the ride up and they had to send the diesel to take...

Vacation June/July 2008 Stop #3, Durango, CO

Posted 07-09-2009 at 05:15 AM by Maryw164 (Welcome to our insanity!)

Durango is a great little town. Downtown is fun to shop. We rode the train (Durango to Silverton), it takes like 3 hours each way. The scenery was spectacular, well worth the fare. The train at one point was tilting as we went around a bend (see photo). We were told that the surrounding mountains/landscape are what they used to model Disneys' Thunder Mountain ride after. We rode in the open air car with the padded seats. Just be sure to pack your sunglasses, as the smoke/soot from the...

Vacation June/July 2008, Stop #2, Holbrook, AZ

Posted 07-09-2009 at 04:51 AM by Maryw164 (Welcome to our insanity!)

Stopped off at Holbrook to see the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest. Beautiful scenery. Pictures don't do it justice. The life size dinosaur was outside Holbrook.

Vacation June/July 2008 Stop #1: Kingman, AZ

Posted 07-07-2009 at 02:49 AM by Maryw164 (Welcome to our insanity!)

This trip, our 1st of many, was the best most relaxing vacation we’ve ever taken. Despite the learning curve and new challenges to deal with. We went to Durango, CO via Kingman, AZ, Holbrook, AZ; and then Flagstaff, AZ on the way back to homebase (San Dimas, CA). We managed to get back home with wanting to strangle one another, or file for divorce

Day one:
We camped at the KOA in Kingman, AZ. It was a pretty good clean park with fairly level sites. Our only problem...
