1964 sovereign

HELLO, my wife and i just bought our first airstream! we live in iowa, and as i was driving through the country, i spotted the silver body of the airstream. a 1964 sovereign, no dents or damage, all eletrical and plumbing works, and most of the original gear is there. i offered the guy $1500 usd, and it was mine. we are so stoked! we are pumped up, and ready to give this thing the tlc that it needs. jon

Welcome to the forums and congrats on your Sovereign! Can't wait to see some pics. Do you think you'll be able to camp in it yet this summer?

Allright!!!, go the Sovereign! I have a '64 myself, they might be sister's, or twins or something, although mine sounds a lot rougher to start with, from what you have described, you'll have a nice canvas to begin with if need be,. Great news. As above, get those pics happening.
