Very pleased to welcome you here to Airforums.com, and congratulations on your new trailer!

I'm willing to bet that you already have photos of it, so cough up the images and post them here!

That is all I have is pictures so far.

It needs a lot of work, starting with a good scrubbing outside and cleaning up inside.

Here are some pics of the outside.







Some bleach should take care of that.

She looks great! We love our 72 Sovereign, even though we haven't actually camped her yet. I see a window a/c unit stuck in one of the windows. Must mean the roof a/c no longer works. Hopefully the PO or you have the original window.

Welcome!
Chris

Very Nice. It does look like you have a bunch to do, and if I were you I would get a Rockguard (685250)for that front window. Those wing windows are hard to replace, hard to get to fit right, pricy, and any new replacements will be single pane. Yours may be double pane. That is a to-do before you spend much time on the road.

I like the aftermarket air conditioner. This must have been a park model. Does it still have the tanks?
