Hello all, my beautiful wife and I purchased a 1985 Sovereign
25' with side bath and corner bed today. It's got a salvage title due to insurance claim but looks VERY usable to me, with only minor damage around the left wheel well. You can see plenty of pics of it in my gallery. I hope we made a good decision, paying $4500 for it. Either way, we hope to get plenty of use from it and aren't concerned with resale. I've already requested a repair quote from a service center in OK.
We won't have it in-hand for a few weeks as it's in Indiana and we're in New Mexico. My relatives in KY are going to pick it up in the next week or two and then meet us half way with it.
I've already gleaned much good info here in the forums and look forward to meeting some of you on the road, in the parks, and online.
