We just bought a '71 Sovereign
. We haven't picked it up yet. I didn't know much about it when we bought it. I've been reading alot lately. I hope we don't have too many of the serious problems. Many of the bathroom pieces are just that...in a bucket in the living room. And there's a hole, about 2 inches in diameter, in the front near the doorway. There's no cabinet door under the stove and a funky looking cutout to the right of the sink. The sofa is godawful ugly...was reupholstered and PO had restructured it to include those high puffy pillowback more popular in the 80's. Oh, and there's a dent in the outside rear...actually, two I think, one on either side. But, we're happy. It cost us $1500 and we thought we got a deal. Please, God, there's no serious axel or other hideously expensive repairs required. I know, we're naive. Wish us luck. At least we live in San Diego where we can work on it pretty much year round (the mountains, so it still gets cold). And my husband has been taking welding lessons and also has a tractor and I take upholstery classes. Okay, well, nice talking to you all. Thanks alot for all the posting help.
