Hello from inside our sovereign in N.Y.

Checking out the forums for all kinds of advice on care ,repair,campsites, and tips in general. Our family of 4 just picked up a mid 80s soverign everything is new to us and it needs some care.The first and only owner backed it into a tree branch and it has a good size dent near the numbers on top rear. And it was stored in a barn and im finding some mouse droppings. Other then that maybe some new rubber and axle repacking and we should be ready by spring. So for now we clean ,clean,clean. Then in spring we camp. Hope to see some of you around.

This is a great site to get info etc. We just bought a 25' sovereign from a dealer here in CT. RV Legends, they were the best to deal with!!
We brought ours to FL for the Winter, maybe some touring. We are very excited about using it a lot.

Best of luck to you and us with our a/s.

Bill
