Taken The Plunge!!!

Well I made the leap into Airstream ownership. Just purchased the 76 Sovreign from my Dad. Thanks Pop (at least that's the way I feel now). He's in his late 60's and recently purchased a 31' Starcraft replacement rig. Wanting to take advantage of the time we have left, I figure this is a good way get some quality time in together.

The yet to be named trailer is pretty much original, so I plan to update the interior finishes (unless 70's retro comes back in style in the near future) and leave the others things pretty much as they are.

Hey Kevin, welcome! Great plan to spend some time with dad while working on your "new" Airstream! As for the 70's coming back in style, well, you never know. Post some pictures when you can.

Welcome to the forum, have a good plan to spend some quality time with your idea. I'm sure you'll both enjoy the journey together... The forum should be a great help as you work on your Aristream...many folks here have gone before you in refurbishing/fixing up thier Airstreams...

Glad you could join us!
