New Airstreamers in Louisiana

Hello, my wife, Sue and I, just bought a 1972 sovereign. We've always wanted one and jumped at the chance to get this one. Everything is in working condition. It just needs some cleaning, inside and out, and possibly some replacement/updates on some equipment. I do want to keep everything as original as possible and will most likely have many questions for you guys in the future. I look forward to getting to know you guys. As soon as I can figure out how, I'll put more pictures on here. You guys take care.

Russ

Welcome Sue and Russ! Nice looking Soveriegn - you'll have a blast with it, we sure have ours! I tried keeping everything stock, but that approach soon wore off and I went into the upgrade mode...

That's what's so nice about Airstreams, you can make them into what you want. Heck, Maggie and I got married inside our's.

Welcome aboard, amigos!
