Hello from Colorado!

Hello everyone! New member from Colorado here. I joined the forum a while back to get pointers on buying an Airstream and ended up buying a 1987 Sovereign 25' from a couple in Nebraska. I have a 2003 Silverado 1500 for my TV. I'm new to campers in general. I come from the backpacking and occasional car camping world, but this is the only way to get my lovely wife to go with me. We just booked our first campsite - a spot at Aspenglen Campground in Rocky Mountain Park in September when the Elk should be bugling. We just had our first child, a baby girl who is almost 4 months old, and we have a 10 year old dog who will be joining us on our adventures as well.

The trailer is exactly what I was looking for. POs kept it in an indoor storage facility for the last 10 years or so, which I have no double kept the floor from rotting. I asked if he had any leaks in the past and he told me "Airstreams never leak" Needless to say, I picked up some Silkaflex and will be re-sealing. I already replaced window gaskets with the D-channel stuff that I was able to find off Amazon for a very reasonable price. I have a new Powermax converter on the way and a smoke/CO detector for peace of mind. I won't be doing anything major to the trailer, just minor updates and maintenance and am hoping to spend a good amount of quality time with the family in it this summer.


Washed and at storage location


Bringing it home from Nebraska!
