    We purchased a 34X a few years back. It needed a lot of work and we are now on the homestretch.

    Hi Jim, I am looking at importing, a '74 Sovereign 31',
    1974 Airstream International Sovereign 31' - Airstream Trailer Classifieds - Airstreams Trailers For Sale
    The price seems good but it costs $14,000 to ship to Australia,but owning an airstream has always been a dream. I noticed on a previous forum you warned about the 1970's 31' airstreams having a 4" frame that you mention is inadequate and resulted in frame bending and the skin coming away from the ribs. If you look at the main image of the trailer for sale, it appears to have what could be the tell tale signs of buckling at the rear of the wheel arch by the side hatch. If that is the case would you warn me away from it despite the price ($3,500) or is it a repairable scenario, and if so, what would it take? The exterior looks in pretty good condition, i intend to renovate the interior. Any advice would be gratefully received. thanks Jon

    Thx, I like your Avion too. Ive been trying to talk my son into a 34' to live in but he thinks it would be too small.

    I have to admit, your avion looks better than the other ones I've seen. Are those flip down jacks on the sides of the front?

    Hi, I saw one of your post and would like to see what you think. I would love to see a little seal by door, Frame design by Jim Golden Rivet Master with as many letters as you can fit. lol
    I didn't look to see if you fixed your frame yet, but I can still pick up deals on metal and all sorts of smaller/shippable random stuff.
