Renovation in progress......

We just purchased our 74 Sovereign this past weekend. We are so excited about renovating it, we have already started. We have enjoyed reading all the post on this forum. Very informative.

Thank you.......We, (me & wife, Alice) love to camp so we've had several travel trailers to include a pop-up....lol We were just always looking for something better and came upon an ad on CraigsList for a 74 Sovereign 31' Land Yacht in Brunswick, GA. We ended up getting it last weekend for a steal. I have pics to post my wife just needs to figure out how.
We have a small window up front that has water in between the 2 panes....any suggestions as how to remove water? We were told finding a window replacement would be next to impossible.

There is a great write up on how to bust out the inner pane of the vista windows.... This is obviously only if you can live with single panes! Google your Airstream plus vista window removal to find it. How much of a steal did you get? !
