1985 sovereign cabinet dimensions or alternative cabinet ideas

Hi. I am so new to this and need help. Iím about to live my dream but run into a few blocks.

. Iíve hired 4 guys to help me and 1 ended up in rehab, one had a heart attack, one refuses to come back when I wouldnít date him and the other just went poof.

Iím trying to move into my 29í airstream. I was naive and didnít ask if it has been flooded under water leaving 6Ē of mud so I bought it and there was a soft spot. Pulled it up and now I demoed it because it was rusted and rotten and 6Ē in mud all the through it.

I was able to get subfloor in, vinyl flooring new water heater. I purchased appliances. I also saved wall templates. By the guy I bought it from didnít leave original cabinets so I donít have them as a template.

1) does anyone have the actual dimensions for the kitchen cabinets. Iím doing a 24Ē slide in range though.
2) does anyone manufacture these in parts and can sell them to me?
3) are there alternatives? I could go to Home Depot etc but isnít that more chaotic?

Iím dealing with the bed and couch idea too, but Etsy seems to work for me right now on the bed. Couch? Ideas would be awesome.

I can install stuff, I just know my wood working is not ďidealĒ.

Iím not giving up. Iím beyond excited.

The website has .pdf drawings of most models. That should give you basic dimensions.

Get on the laptop and do some extensive searches of this forum for "full monte" "interior renovation" or "restoration" if you want period correct design.

I remember one old thread where the owner bought Ikea flat pack cabinets and modified the back side to fit the curved walls... quite a project that was. Also lightened the frames a bit too.

Look for other vintage owners in your area. Join WBCCI if you haven't already done so.

I DO HOPE your help assisted you in determining that the frame wasn't a rusted wreck before you did the subfloor.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Hi. Thank you! I was worried about IKEA because of the weight and their frame structure but I’ll look again. Never hurts!

I did look at the metal beam stud things and there was little to no rust. The stabilizer things, water heater and metal pan underneath were bad. I think I’ll need to get a welder for a few things

I can’t locate a vintage person around. I’ll check out I thought I only say measurements of the structure not interior and cabinets etc.

Thank you!!!!
