1971 Sovereign gaskets

I just purchased my first airstream today! I'm overwhelmed but excited and thought I would start with what I know needs replaced and work from there. I need new gaskets for all of the windows. Where is the best place to find these? Also is there somewhere that sells the levers for the windows as well?
Thanks in advance!
Emily

Congratulations! I got all my replacement gaskets are Vintage Trailer Supply. They seem to have most of what I needed for specialty parts. Another good place to check is Out of Doors Mart at odmrv.com.

What's the condition of your trailer? Are you able to camp in it now? Got any pictures?

Pictures

It's in pretty good condition for the price and age. I know I definitely have my work cut out for me. These are the pictures the seller sent me before I bought it. I'm planning to live in it full time so I'm planning to do a complete overhaul. New insulation, new subfloor, paint job and probably rearranging the layout of the interior. I attached pictures. Let me know if there's another way I should share those. Thanks for your help!

Is this 71 going to be stationary or will you be traveling with it?

You may be already aware of this but the original axles on a 71 will need to be replaced if you will be regularly towing it. My opinion is supported by the photo of the side of the trailer in which the trailer sits low on the wheels. You will find more than you ever want to know about axles if you do a search.

Otherwise it looks very good.

axles

It will be stationary. Iím planning to elevate it off the axles and wheels anyways. If I decide to pull or probably if I sell Iíll replace them at that point. Just not a huge priority right now. Thanks for your input!
