Acquired 1970 31' Sovereign

I'm a newbie who just acquired a '70 Sovereign. I'm excited about restoring it but also a little intimidated by the scope of work. I've perused the threads but have yet to find what I'm looking for. I'd like to see pix of the interior so I can see what i need to replace. To the naked eye it seems to be in good condition. I need not get it road-ready. Just want to make it comfortable for the upcoming winter season as I am living in it. I have gaskets for the windows which is my first project and the threads here have been helpful. Light fixtures, panelling underneath the stove/sink, and anything else that was originally an interior item is what I'm searching for. I'm stoked to be a part of the Airstream Family! Thanks again for any help. I will take pix soon and update my progress.

Welcome to the forums and congrats on your new acquisition! Have you checked out the photo archives here? Might give you some good ideas. Good luck and let us see some pics of your Airstream!

Thank you soooo much Mel for the quick reply. What a great resource you are! I'm wondering though, the "livingroom" in all of the pictures doesn't match my layout. Were there different model types within the '70 31' Sovereign? I have a wrap around seating area that doesn't fit any of the pictures i looked at. The only reason why I think I have a stock setup is the the original fake wood panneling and bottom shelves are intact. Sorry for the lousy discription. I'll send pix soon. Thanks agian for your help Mel!!

Below is from a '74 brouchure - the front furniture is very versatile. It is possible to "mix and match" most of the available individual pieces.
