Hello everyone, we recently purchased a 1976 31 foot sovereign
. We have been looking for a good used fixer upper rv for a year or so and ran across our Airstream by accident. Actually, we were not really looking for an Airstream, but after looking on this forum we became rather excited to join the ever growing family of Airstreamers, so we bought it. Now the fun starts. LOL
We new that we had our work cut out for us, but we had no idea exactly how many things can be wrong, not working, etc..... We have stripped her down to the hull and have started with the bath first (rear). We already know all the flooring has to be replaced, and yes we have some work to do on the frame, a little sag. Since my husband is a certified welder and a Mechanical Engineer I am hoping that this will not be a huge set back. Most of the original cabinets, etc are in tact and we will try to use as much of the original equipment as possible. However, its looking like this one will be a custom job. This forum has already proved to be very helpful and has already answered many questions. We do not intend to change the floorplan at all, but we do have many custom plans to make camping with two girls a little easier.
I am sure you will be hearing a lot from me in the future. So far we are doing great and moving right along. We hope to be camping next year at this time. Keep your fingers crossed.
