Took the Plunge

Just took on the challenge of a 68 Sovereign. On the surface it seems quite sound with minimal modification. Replaced heater and Coleman air conditioner.
Found a little floor rot in the bathroom and by the door, but it appears to be manageable. Should actually be a lot of fun !!!
The awning is missing, and I'd like to keep the appearance close to original
Does anyone have drawings or pix of the awning and associated hardware with dimensions ?

Welcome to the forums. You most likely had a Zip Dee Awning on your trailer they are still in business and make the same old awnings as what you originally had.
Good luck with your project. Post some picture so we can see what you are doing.
