Hey all! - first post
So we just got our 25' 1987 Sovereign
trailer delivered! It's definitely got some issues, but the price was right and we're looking for a long term project while we're living here in western NY for another year. The seller was very up-front about all of it's issues, as well as the work he put into the trailer. The interior is the rear twin version, original except for the front, where the floor was redone due to a water leak in the door/deadbolt. The seller told me the leak was sealed, and the lock was replaced, but I am worried about some wet insulation/wood/rust flakes I found under the belly pan by front-right stabilizing jack... kinda bummer that we missed this when we were checking out the trailer. Called the dude up to say 'what's up with that' and he was surprised. Is offering to come take a look... crossing my fingers the frame's not rotting out in there... but we shall see. He says he's worked on a lot of vintage trailers so I hope he can offer a solution. Definitely planned on doing a lot of work on this baby, but this was a bit disappointing...
Anyway, other than that, it's got the 'sunglasses' (so we can be
), 2 awnings that are in decent shape, some neat fan-vents, and a nice solar panel setup that the guy installed a few years back.
I have a remote web dev job which will allow my wife and I to do some semi-full-timing once everything's all set and we get a tow vehicle... We're young, new to all of this and have a lot to learn, but we're very excited to get this thing going!
Thanks for reading, and looking forward to chatting with all of you!
