A video tour of our 1971 Sovereign

Here's a link to a short video tour of our 1971 31' Sovereign. We have come to love living in this trailer more every day.

Thanks for the tour! Your Airstream looks to be in great shape and you did a spectacular job on the finishes in the bathroom. Enjoy your home

Thanks for the tour.
Where did you get the aluminum for the shower rod? I tried to use your idea for my Sovereign with aluminum I goy at Home Depot and it cracked and broke when I bent it to screw to the walls.

That is the most beautiful, pristine older trailer I have ever seen. Just gorgeous.

Hi CaCraig,

It's 1/8" thick flat aluminum from Lowe's. Be careful to not make the bend radius too sharp.

Well done TxDave! I wish our 71 Sovereign had been in half as good a condition as yours when we found it on Ebay.. Love the decision to keep so much original, I'd imagine it makes living in it very nostalgic
