Howdy, Eric. Yes it is. Thanks for asking.
We moved to Georgia,
and expanded our "family": Sue's mom and sister now live with us. Also, we added (rescued) Gus, a 1-1/2 year-old Bassett hound to be with Buffett, our Golden Retriever.
We also added a '73 31' Sovereign
as a project
. When all four adults and both dogs were camping at the North Georgia fall leaf thing, we were too crowded. On the way home, Sue and I discussed what we would like in a replacement trailer (and selling our 24' '61 Tradewind) after seeing and touring an '84 31' rear-bath trailer in an RV sales lot. We decided that a center bath was highly desirable, especially when 4 adults are camping. That way, the back bedroom remains isolated from traffic to and from the toilet. The 31' has more storage and closet space which we liked, so I started looking for a low cost 31' with center bath. As luck would have it, I found one advertised about an hour or so after the seller posted it on Airstreamer.com, called and ended up buying it. It does need work though, like the missing screen door, the rotted floor around the entire rear and some of the kitchen and entryway. The exterior 12v
lights don't work and sockets are rusted solid (towed it home from FLA using temp lights with long wires). It was sitting in a field unattended for several years.
Why don't you come down to Florida Jan 5-8 for the 2007 Florida Can Opener Airstream Rally? I think there are about 63 AS booked into Topsail Hill Park (http://www.floridastateparks.org/topsailhill/default.cfm
). Well, maybe the North Georgia Rally in April? Are you going to Florida anytime, where you might consider stopping by in Ellijay GA for a visit? Or maybe we could just meet you on the way somewhere... Whatever happened to your Impala<?> and Bambi?
Regarding this thread, I emailed the salvage place and he said he thought he did have a screen door, and it might be on ebay soon. So other stuff may also go there for the 70's AS's he is parting out. Good luck to anyone who needs stuff like that.
