A little help in Nashville?

Folks,

There's a 25' Sovereign listed in Nashville that my wife is willing to consider, but I don't look forward to a 4-5 hour drive and finding an overpriced dog. Would anyone in the area be willing to go take a look for us?

Thanks in advance, Sean and Bridget

P.S. feel free to PM us

Hi - we have a long list of volunteer inspectors, you can find them here. Good luck hunting.

The volunteer inspectors are for the most part very knowledgeable but since you are only 4 to 5 hours away I would still make the drive for the final decision. I say this even after buying two Airstreams sight unseen one was a thousand miles away and being happy with both.

Chaplain, I definately will go look if I think its worth cash on the barrelhead, just trying to make sure its worth the trip.

Janet, thx - I see 2 from TN in there!

Maybe....

There is an OUTSIDE chance I will be in Nashvegas in a week or so during which time I might be able to take a look-see if that is soon enough.

That would be great if it is still there, I found it on-line thru Airstream RV Source. It's sitting at Bankston Motorhomes, 2622 A Music Valley Drive, Nashville, TN 37214, Phone: 800-838-1913. Here's the link:

1986 Sovereign

Would definately appreciate having someone who knows what they're looking at provide somefeed back before I take all my "internet expertise" up for a once over.

asta2,
That looks just like my trailer, inside and out (no pink curtains though). I'm not sure right now but I may have to go to Nashville sometime this week. Bankston is right next door to Cullem & Maxey and Camping World. I'm waiting on an order to be delivered to a friend's house this week which I have to pick up. If there is someone who can get there quicker than great. I anticipate Wed. or possibly Thursday.

Craig,

That would be great as the next in line was Gen, but that was a maybe for next week. If you give it a favorable rating (maybe let me know what you think about the asking price also) its likely I'll drive up on Sat. BTW, since you have that model, would you happen to have the floorplan on digits? I haven't been able to find it on the web.

Thanks again,
Sean

Except the '86 has a 4 burner stove and there is no lift -up table next to the door opening.

thanks, that scratches the itch. Did you need me to cover gas or anything else for the trip to the dealer?

Nope, it puts me a number of miles out of the way but maybe one day someone might do the same for me. It looks like I will go to Nashville after work tomorrow so the place may be closed by the time I get there. That shouldn't stop me from walking around on the lot. I will give them a call before I leave town to make sure it is still available and the asking price. I'll take a few pics while I'm there also.

I planned to check it out for you yesterday, however, I called to see if the trailer was still there and they said it had been sold. Looked like a real nice unit and a fair price. You just can't hesitate when one that size and price comes up for sale.
Sorry,
Dan
