Smile New to the club - 1972 Sovereign

Just bought a 1972 Airstream Sovereign International 31ft. We are the 3rd owners. All original except couch has been recovered, vinyl flooring & carpet replaced. Everything in excellent working condition. No broken rolling doors!!! Very excited to use this summer on vacation. Live in So.Cal. Anyone have any good suggestions on best/favorite place to camp w/ full hook-ups anywhere in California for a rig this size? Tow with a 2000 Ford Excursion(19ft) 4x4 v10, w/Banks exhaust. Also going to Grand Canyon & Durango, Co this summer. Where are the best sites in those places?

Hi, welcome to the club. San Clemente State Beach is a nice place to camp locally. We stayed at Flint Stones camp ground near Grand Canyon; It was for kids but it was the closest we could find at the time. There was a camp ground very close to the entrance, but it was closed, for some reason, when we were there. In Durango Co. we like Lightner Creek camp ground.

Hi Mary,
Welcome to the forum!
Lots of places in CA. Morro Bay State Park up our way is one that comes to mind. Reservations are usually a must in summer time. I put a review on the campground review section recently. Check it out.
You can look in the section for the west to narrow your search to states near ours.
Williams AZ has a couple of nice parks if I recall, not sure about hookups.
Good luck and congrats on the new trailer.
