New Owner in New Braunfels, TX

Hi Y'all,

What an awesome site! I would never have taken this giant leap without all the information available here.

I've wanted an AS for years and I finally jumped in with both feet. I'm now the owner of a 1972 Sovereign 31. It's almost completely gutted, but I think she'll be awesome in a few years.

Welcome! The good news I found is this . . . every part I needed is still available for prompt delivery. That fact's a real encouragement when starting on a project. The original factory service manual for my trailer was available from Airstream. Having that, made many projects go quicker, with much less frustration. This forum's members enjoy helping with questions, and the forum has done a good job preserving archive articles and how to's.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Welcome! There are quite a few folks on the forum in the Central Texas area and, true to our Texan ways, often times around to lend a hand or help problem solve.

Enjoy your project!
