You should sleep in it!! We had ours in the driveway for a month before we could go camping and I would take naps in it and we had drinks in it several times. Driveway camping can be fun!

Great minds think alike...

We got it home about 10 PM last night went in the house, got a bottle of wine and went back to the AS and enjoyed!

Don't forget to pack the necessities: flamingos and of course your flamingo grill (tastes like chicken).

Don't get me wrong

I think the 21 ft Sovereign is the greatest. Really!! You will have to let us all know how you handle the headliner problem. It has been mentioned a lot here....I went thru it too. There are some good ideas here, but I am sure you will end up having to remove the interior in order to do it right. There are many good and talented folks with ideas for you here.

Congrats on your new Airstream. I can just feel how very excited you are. Just go camping and watch her smile.

Yes, it's already coming down. Fortunately I own a large sheet metal, machining and powder coating company so I've got a few ideas about aluminum panels

I'll get some pictures of her this weekend, we had to tow it home in the rain last night so she needs a bath now!

Congratulations on your purchase!

We have a '95 that's doing the same thing with the headliner. The plan is to take it down and remove the backing that's left via Goo Gone, leaving it bare aluminum. (Don't do what I did originally - try to use more screws to hold it up - it doesn't work and then you'll have screw holes to deal with when you try the next thing.)

As others have said, NOT doing a good bit of driveway camping is what would be seen as strange. By all means (if your HOA will allow), install a 30 amp hookup from your garage (sufficient to power your trailer & AC) and enjoy your new wonderful new adventure. I store my '54 Cruiser under a roofed shed attached to the side of my barn, maybe 100 ft. from my front door. I frequently go out there at all times of the day or night, to relax & listen to some music, read, nap or spend the night. Whenever the house is over run with family or friends staying overnight, they get the house & I gladly sleep in the 'Stream . Enjoy your Soverign as much and as often as you can.

Congratulations on a smart decision!!

Well we did our first night of "driveway camping" last night.

We slept in until 10:30!! We never sleep in like that!

Don cooked us breakfast, everything seems to be working. I think we'll load all of our camping gear up this weekend and head down to Big Sur next weekend for a real test run.
