Fabulous redo, Mookie!

Mookie, that interior looks ab fab!

The carpet in our '93 is beginning to wear, although it looks good after a shampoo. One thing we did have to do was get new drapes. We found someone who makes them just like the originals. We sent in exact measurements and they came ready to install. They are identical and actually slightly better! Anybody who needs that information let me know. The price was reasonable.

I see that you have a slight ledge where you've installed the TV. Our '93 doesn't have that. We bought a small flat-screen that we want to install on the same wall by attaching it directly. Does anybody have any tips on that?

We full-timed in this unit for a year and loved it!

Nice job on the interior! Is the sofa leather or ultra-leather? What was the cost of the upholstery? Makes me want to add leather to my 21 footer!!

Sofa, etc.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. We're really happy with our new interior.

The fabric on the sofa is 'faux serpent' - it has a fairly large pattern - maybe 12" x 14". I removed the sofa, broke it down and took it to Kay Chesterfield Mfg. Co. in Oakland - in business since 1921. They did an awesome job! I highly recommend them to anyone in the Bay Area looking for reupholstery. They lined up the patterns perfectly - that took extra fabric. the total cost for fabric and labor was a little over $1,000. The beauty of the faux leather is that if you spill something, just wipe it up. I'm amazed at how closely the new faux leathers look and feel to the real thing, but much more practical.

Hey Ann - how's your stovetop?

-Mark

Just saw your post, do not go on this site very much.
own a 1994 21' Sovereign. I reside in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and have owned the trailer for 3 years. I purchased the trailer in Oregon and imported it into Canada.

Hi Hihosilvr,
Everything has it's price, but I'm afraid my trailer has been promised to my daughter and son-in-law, when I can no longer use it.
Thanks

We have a 21' 1994 Sovereign which we pull with a V8 Hemi Jeep Grand Cherokee. We love our Sovereign and use it many weekends during the year. We replaced the carpet with laminate flooring and added a Satellite Radio. Other than regular maintenace it hasn't needed anything. Now we are beginning to think about doing something regardign the clearcoat peeling. Does anyone have experience with the Metallic Painting instead of new clearcoat?

Mookie, I live in Northern CA also, Santa Cruz County. The exterior of your Sovereign looks great. Did you have somone local refurbish it? The only place i can find which "specializes" in the exterior is in Corona.

The hubby and I finally took the plunge and brought our 1992 Sovereign 21 home last weekend! Camped overnight on the way back from AZ and had a blast! This forum really helped with our research prior to buying our new baby - the knowledge here is amazing! We have her stocked with "essentials" and now are making a list of "improvements" No more designer handbags for me for awhile - it's all going to the AS!

This is an old thread your diving into...but, the facts remain the same. The 21 Sovereign is GREAT. You will love the wood and the extra width available. Clear coat is always a problem...solved the best by Dick McIntire in Oregon. The saggy headliner is the only major, expensive to fix, problem.

Melody, I own a 1996 21' Sovereign and need to fix the saggy headliner. Any suggestions? Without any research under my belt yet, I was thinking of removing trim, applying contact cement, sticking back, trimming where necessary, and putting the trim back up. However, I'd sure love to find out now whether I'd be wasting my time with that approach? Thanks for any advice.

Sadly, I think we must part with our trailer, hence I will be trying to fix this soon to put it on the market. The exterior was taken care of before it oxidized, so it's in good shape. Anyone interested, it's in Boulder, Colorado. Cheers, Nick

Hi Nick...Yes..its a reality. The headline can't be secured with a simple spray adhesive. Those that have used the screw/washer fix have secured the headliner and seem to be OK with it. Look back thru the thread...you can get some advice and contacts. Regardless...the 21 footer it PREMIUM>
PS.. You are surrounded with the best folks with Airstreams in Boulder area.

I can be number six...

I have a 1993 21' Sovereign. Actually lived in it for a year when the Navy brought me to the Northwest as a geo-bachelor 15 years ago.

I have the same coating problem that Sam mentions. Anyone with suggestions? Don't think 'Navy Grey' would look good on a Sovereign.

Plan on keeping the trailer for another 20+ years. Not ready for decomissioning ceremony yet...

Kevin

A falling down ceiling cover (expensive to fix) is the only bad thing about them. Other than that I loved mine. I like em because they are the follow up design to early Flying Clouds, 69 Caravel and they have real nice wood interior.
