Manuals

Hey guys,
Do any of you have an extra set of manuals (owners & service) that you would like to sell for a 1976 sovereign 31' AS? I would be willing to pay for copying, shipping and a little to say thanks if anyone would be willing to copy theirs for me. I just bought my AS and it doesn't have manuals and I really get the feeling that I'm going to need a set.

I know everyone says to contact Helen Davis for this but I would rather pay someone on here for them if possible. Just let me know and thanks,

Josh

Josh,
Got to www.airstream.com and look under Bookstore, they have high quality reprints availble for most trailers.

If you are looking for manuals, you can get copied reproductions from Helen Davis at Secretarial Services, PO Box 484, Sidney, OH 45365 (937) 492-8885.

And as Aaron said, high quality reprinted Service and Owners' Manuals are also available from the Airstream Store at www.airstream.com look under books. If you don't see the year(s) you need contact Airstream.

Thanks Aaron & Janet,
I was looking at the bookstore and they don't know specifically my airstream....just 1976 Trailer manual. Is this how that did it back then? They don't do a manual for each specific model? I'll order the manuals tomorrow once I find out what exactly what I need to order. Thanks,

Josh

Smile 76 manuals

Josh -- Saw your posts and if you still need manuals for '76 Sovereign, let me know. We were lucky enough to get an Owner's Manual with our trailer and I found a (reproduced) Service Manual on eBay. -- Ashley.

Ashley,
If you have on you want to get rid of, let me know. I found a service manual on ebay as well for a 1977 but I think they are the same but I'm not sure. They appear identical from the pictures I've looked at in the photo section. Can you or anyone else verify that the 77 manual would cover the guts of my AS? Thanks for the help,

Josh

manual

Hey Josh -- I've only got the one copy of each manual and the Owner's Manual is "falling apart," but we could make copies. I was going to take them apart anyway and scan them for portability in my laptop but I haven't gotten that far yet.
I'm betting the '77 Service Manual is pretty close if not exactly the same.
--Ashley.

Josh,
The 1976 manual covers all models for the year except the Excellas, they are covered in the next year's manual...don't know why but that is the way it is.

Ashley,
If you scan them, I would love to have an electronic copy. Let me know if when you get done.

Aaron,
I'll order the service manual off of ebay then and get it on the way. I can print a copy of Ashley's owners manual when she scans it.

Thanks for all the help and info,

I'm really having fun with my $1500 Airstream. Needs a little more modern feel to it but I don't want to take away too much from how cool it is/was in the hayday.

Josh

Yeah, I saw it but I'm too impatient to wait and watch an auction. I need the service manual pretty bad. This is my first AS and I really know nothing about them or what goes to what. I'm like an eight year old with a 31 foot toy. I know it's sad.

I just ordered the 1977 service manual on ebay.

Thanks for the help,

Josh
