New in Florida!

Hey, Guys and gals! Just purchased a '73, 31' Sovereign international needing tender, loving care. My wife Barbara and I are hoping to get ready for our first trip to ANYWHERE early this summer. I am a former member of Southern Gospel quartets and we hope to be able to follow this style of music concerts and just enjoy! We will be soliciting your help on this journey of repair and restoration. Love our old Airstream!!

Welcome to the forum, and congradulations on your new Airstream. You've come to the right place for help on your repairs.

Welcome. As a fellow Floridalander I can say you are in a great area for camping. My wife & I love the state campgrounds and go whenever we can. Hopefully we'll meet up some day.

Greetings and welcome to AIR. Glad to have you with us. You should be able to find plenty of archival information here that can help during the "TLC" part of your ownership experience.

Feel free to start or join in on discussions, or topics where you feel comfortable.

Hi FLaboy67, welcome to the group. I'm sure you will have a great time in your Airstream.
FYI the big Big Bend unit of the WBCCI is having a rally in Old Town. You might want to check it out. I met a couple of their members last September. Very nice and they told us about this rally they are having on their way to the FL State rally.
Here is the info I have:
February 11 13, 2011 Suwannee River Hideaway (On our way to Fla. State Rally)
1218 SE Hwy 346
Old Town, FL
You can get more on the web site
Again welcome to the group!

For the love of Airstreams

Greetings from Texas. Congrats on your new toy! Addiction? Is that why I find myself sitting in the AS while parked in the garage?!
In a perfect world, every home would have a dog and every dog would have a home.

Thanks for all the good feelings in the welcomes. First things first, I need a service manual for the AS if anyone can direct me. The wife and I will try to make the rally in Old Town. Excited!

Howdy and welcome to, Flaboy. Wow, I thought you were being shy about your town name, but there really is a place in FL call "Old Town".

Is it anywhere near "New Town"?

So don't wait to slap some photos of your new-to-you trailer up on here, we need to ooo and aaah over it! Especially before you fix it all up like new!

If it's to be, it's up to me.
