Smile I am so excited

Hello everyone, I am purchasing a 1972 air stream sovereign today. all i have to do is go pick it up. I am so excited, it needs a bunch of little things done to it, except i have to check plumbing and gas lines and all of that, but it has a new refrigerator. it is in reall good shape for a '72 model. it does need the cabinet doors worked on handles and all that but i cant wait to get it home to start on it. I am so so excited.

Congrats!! When I pulled mine home about a month ago, it was a great feeling (although I wasn't 100% certain it was going to make it home, lol).

The Airstream on-line store offers the following that might help you to more fully understand your 1971 Airstream Sovereign:Factory Service Manuals weren't published until 1972, but most of the systems in your 1971 will be very similar to those in the 1972.

Good luck with your coach!

Invest in the 1972 "service manual".

It is about a 99 percent duplicate of the 71 models.

It will help you with many many things about your new find.

High-yo Silver! Welcome. We love that new-owner enthusiasm.

Like our trailers, that shine may dim a little, but it's still a wondeful Airsstream world~!
