1976 Sovereign Remodel

Posted 08-03-2008 at 10:26 AM by 76sovereign


WELCOME TO AIRSTREAM REMODEL. Here you can follow the remodel of our 1976 31' Airstream Travel Trailer. We are adding a booth/bed in the front with seating all along the street side. Wood cabinets, new stove and cooktop, re-facing the fridge in black to match the stove. We will be making new platforms and storage for the twin beds. We don't plan on doing much to the bath.

HE FINALLY DID IT! Man, these stools are a mutha to install. It wouldn't have been so bad if he had Stretch Armstrong's arms and the hands of a toddler...

Jack built a pedestal for the "Thrown" since we are both a bit handicap when it comes to getting down that low and . . .I'm sure you will all's real important to be able to go potty.

She's gutted and the new floor is installed.

We finally got everthing out back all the way to the bathroom with the exception of the fridge. What a JOB!

This is taking WAY longer than I ever imagined.

Replacing the insulation

After we achieved a perfect fit on the cross member Jack replaced the insulation.

Bottom scoring on 2X10 cross member

This is how we scored the bottom of the 2x10 to fit the frame . It fit like a dream.

Support for dining booth

We felt we really needed to beef up the floor where the lounge used to be. So Jack cut and placed a 2x10 as a cross member on top of the frame. This will support the sub floor for the dining booth.

1st day of remodel

Well today was a very exciting day. Today we started ripping out stuff.
There was a platform on the floor where the couch was that was about 2" higher than the rest of the floor. Today we removed it and found that this platform was a very lousy attempt at repairing a floor that was rotten. From what we could tell thehe window has been leaking for, oh let's say. . .TEN YEARS.
