[Project] Sushi - 1972 Sovereign Rebuild

Hey everyone, Amanda and I picked up this lil beauty over the summer and immediately stripped everything out to find out what we were in for.

Underneath it all we found a trailer that is in pretty good shape, but needs some work. So we found a suitable parking spot and decided on a shelf-off full renovation. There will be a trailer rehabilitation, totally new floor plan, all new interiors, new awning, the whole nine.

Got the gantry design all drawn up (with y'alls help of course), and heading to grab some lumber and then some hoists from the ol' Harbor Frieght.

Here we go!

Looks like a great project, though a lot longer than the ones iím accustomed to renovating. Donít throw anything away until you get to the end. There are several threads currently going through renovations. Also, there are several experts around you that are doing this or have done it. Good luck on your reno and have fun. Bubba

What Bubba said about not throwing anything away may sound silly, but I implore you... heed his advice! The stinky cushions you can toss, but for the most part save it. Not to put it back in mind you (though, maybe), but you'd be amazed at the time and headache savings you'll get back just by keeping all the "junk".

Ask me how I know...
