1968 Sovereign in rough shape: What's it worth?

I have a 1968 soverigne that i got from one of my family members. It is a fixer upper.. It has some rotton wood on the floor the kitchen cabinets had some rot on them so i pulled them out .. It really needs a lot of work. It is missing 2 windows. the body seems to be in pretty good shape. the bathroom is in good shape. I just dont have the time or money to put into a restoration project. I am wondering what i may be able to sell this thing for. I would like to see someone who cares about fixing something like this up. My uncle who i got it from is a big airstream guy. he is just to old now to mess with it. any advice would be greatly appreciated

I believe that a 1968 Sovereign, rough, with floor rot and missing windows would be worth $1000 although the right buyer might pay a little more, depending on which windows are missing, and especially if there are no dents or other damage in the exterior skin.

The sovereign being a longer trailer would be less sought after. The cost of replacing the windows can be considerable.

The cost of windows would be at least $250.00 each. I think $1000.00 is a good price if the exterior skin is in good condition, no dents. People are looking for good skin at that price,nothing more.

The most expensive new tempered glass for a 66 to 68 trailer, is $175.00, not including any freight.
