Well most folks have a new one made and since it is the first thing to rot you usually won't find a used one.

How bad? Which frame components are blown out? Mine had a few bad outriggers and so some steel was sistered in to provide support. I also have a Florida trailer and its got rust for sure. There seems to be no shortage of the early 70s sovereigns out there but in FL they've all got rust.

Suggest you visit with a good local welder about building you a new one. Or, maybe yours could be repaired by that same person.

I guess its body off and take it to welder to copy for a new one.....

The smartest cheapest best option is to have an improved frame built.
