His phone was disconnected when I called it, I send a letter to the address he gave me but no response as of yet. I just need the space to bring the Sovereign home to work on, I really need a much larger garage...lol

Maybe you can sneak it into the backyard for a couple of hours, days, or weeks.
If it takes a while to get caught, you could say, "That old thing? I've had that for a while-"

Well the clean out was completed last night and everything that could be salvaged is in storage which includes the appliances, couch, chest of drawers and the cabinet with the sink in it, the front floor was sealed with the 2nd over with Thompson's, leaving the remaining floor instant in the old section to provide stability for the way home for the buyer, can believe that the electrical is still in great shape, had my dad who is a master electrician and HVAC look at wiring and the fridge and he said for a 57 it looks great, below is the progress and storage items are ready to be loaded back for it's trip to it's new home. Hopefully have the 31 footer in my driveway by the 3rd week in November Click image for larger version

Mitch, if you really want to sell it, you should list it in the Airforums Classifieds. It's free & you'll get a lot more exposure there. I'm kinda sad....I enjoyed your adventure! Wish I didn't have 2 trailers already--yours will be spectacular when it's all fixed up--love the windows & endcaps of this trailer!

Mitch, you have done a wonderful job getting her ready for her next life. You have saved her from the scrap yard! We are thrilled about meeting up with you and hope to spend a long time restoring her and then taking her on lots of our own adventures. Thaks for posting these new photos-- We are so excited! What layout does your "new" antique airstream have?

The 31' has the twin rear beds and center bath, it's been parked under pine trees for about 15 years so it's green and silver...but it still has keys and the only thing that would need replaced would be the front door latch because the handle is missing.

Yes, and we are so excited! Maybe we should just continue this thread. My hometown in Virginia is only an hour and a half (or so) from Mitch so we are working out the details to bring her home!

Mitch, center bath? That's great. Post photos! A '76 will have a gray tank, too. Nice!!!
