We will be the new owners of a 1976 31' Sovereign
very soon and we are as thrilled as if expecting the other type of new family member.
The trailer is roadworthy but it needs work. In the last two days I've learned about axles, awnings and interiors. I've found this website (and registered, obviously), Vintage Trailer Supply, Inland RV and the very nice people at Tin Can Interiors.
I have many questions and some concerns. My first concern is my driveway; I haven't measured the angle but unless I can cut across my neighbor's driveway that has less of an incline I am fairly certain I will scrape the holding tank - or worse. In my search for an answer to this problem I learned how to evaluate the axles which affect riding height. I still need to go look at the position of the axles to determine if this is a problem. ARGH!! So much to learn!!
We are going to gut the interior and start over. There is a water leak - I'm not sure from where yet but that will be addressed as well.
See? Lots of questions. Anyway...
Any advice, tips, pointers, cautions, or lessons learned will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for having us!!
Duane and Nancy
