Almost new owner

I just closed the deal on a 1975 sovereign 31 footer. It is going to need a little TLC but I don't think there are any major problems.

It is really a larger unit than I wanted but I think I got a good deal (famous last words). Also, I have always wanted an Airstream.

I know there is a problem with the awning and I will need to re-plumb where the water comes in.

It has most of the original cabinets and they seem to be in good condition.

I will be picking your brains and I look forward to being part of the Airstream community.

One of my first questions is where do I find parts? I know there are a lot of vendors out there but also know some are better than others. I have a lot of projects going on want to get the most bang for my buck.


Thanks, pete

I have redone two 70s Sovereigns over the past 15 months, one got a little work, one got a lot, both had bad fresh water plumbing from freezing up, both got new PEX plumbing.

There are vendors on the forums that I have patronized, I also bought a lot off the Internet and a lot from hardware stores.
