1958 Sovereign of the Road Owners in Wyoming

Hi Folks, My wife and I own a 1958 Sovereign of the Road (Land Yacht) we inherited from her parents. They owned it since 1970 and it lived in the north woods of MN until 1996 when we moved it here to Wyoming. We have been in the fix-up/restore process of and on since then. Last summer we pulled her over to the Grand Teton NP for a family reunion. Usually we make one or two trips up to the near-by Big Horn mountains. So the Ancient Lady hasn't traveled too far from home.
This summer we hope to make some progress on exterior polishing. Also hope to install our 12v solar system and rework the water system. Lots to do and never enough time!!!
Last summer the WBC rally was held here in our town. Saw some beautiful vintage Airstreams. Inspiring.
Love reading all the creative and helpful ideas on restoring the old girl.
Sincerely, Bill and Mary

Howdy and welcome to, Bill! You have come to the right place to ask questions about your SOTR!

Please post lots of photos of it? I haven't seen many of them, and I would love to see them of yours, inside and outside!

Not too many SOTR's out there. I believe Robandzoe's SOTR is also a 58.

Good Luck with the restoration.
