My husband and I purchased our sovereign
back in May and are about to began renovations on it next week. We also have a 1985 E250 Ford diesel 11 passenger van for towing. We have a 13 month old daughter and our plan is to live in the airstream full time for the next 3-5 years.
We plan on spending time between 4 different places: Colorado , Minnesota, California, and Washington.
We are doing a complete renovation which will include subbing out the electrical and plumbing to the professionals and then using my Father who is a design builder for the rest of the work.
We've read many threads and have found this site the most helpful to us. Our biggest hurdle is figuring out how to make the airstream functional in really really cold weather. Any brainstorms or ideas or specific products we should use would be more than appreciated...remember that we are starting over with a blank slate so the sky is the limit....well kind of!!
Look forward to reading more threads and posting more questions as we move forward with the project. If anyone is interested in following our journey you can check out my blog: www.theoppositeway.org
