Just bought '75 Sovereign International

Hi All,

I just bought an Airstream two days ago and haven't even picked it up yet. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I'm excited because I've always dreamed of owning an Airstream and I'm looking forward to many good times with it. I'm nervous because I'm a complete novice and have never even towed a trailer in my life. I'm hoping to glean as much information as I can from this community and hopefully make a friend, or two.

Hey and welcome! You will make many friends and there are alot of airstreamers in your neck of the woods! But first Scott break out the ole digital camera and when you get it home please take and post some pictures! We love pictures! As for novice we have all started there and some of US are still there. Just remember when you pull it for the first time do NOT get cocky, Just take your time and get confortable stopping and turning and backing with it. again welcome Cliff

Gotta get busy! Have a great day! Now where did I put those revits?

Welcome Scott!

I am a fellow '75 owner so I am well acquainted with the 1975 Sovereign, considering mine is torn down for an overhaul you could say I am a bit too well acquainted!

You will love it, take it slow and easy. When I bought our Sovereign from the dealer, they hooked it up and said "safe travels" and away I went never towing before. It's been great ever since.
Bill and Janice, We're lovin' it! (Airstreaming)

I too am new to the Airstream community recently purchasing a 1970 Sovereign. I love her. I am sure you will love yours also, and the forums here are the most wonderful resource. People are so willing to share their knowledge and experience with us newbies. I must say this site and Airstreams themselves are quite addicting.

So hello & welcome Scott. My name is Amber, and I am addicted to aluminum.
