Sovereign Owners Unite!!!

Yes, the "Whale" (we might call him Moby) is sitting in our yard; not too shiny; and the inside in a state of despair, but hey, he's ours.

We were sitting out in the yard yesterday (admiring our handiwork for the afternoon) and wondering out loud "Are there allot of Sovereigns out there?" More the question, are there many late 60s, center double bed, mint green bathroom ones out there? We've seen many twin bedded ones in the photo archives. But how many have a double bed? Do all of them have dark cabinets? Do all of them have turquoise oven doors and mini-flowered counter tops? These are things that are of great importance....

So my question is this.... Sovereign owners, why did you buy the "big tamale", do you have a double bed or twins, is your bathroom mint green and turquoise, did you find the original gold carpeting the bottom of your closets, and last of all what are you using to pull around that giant hunk of metal?

The strange old woman in Middle America wants to know...

Keep the shiny side up.

Hi Beth Ann,
Ours is a rear bath, mid twins. Funky green kitchen counter tops, dark laminate interior. Found yellow and orange shag carpet in the closets and cabinets. Bathroom is a yellowish color, I have been told it was white at one time

Yes there are others with center double bed. That would be me. Bought it from a neighbor last year. It went out Memorial weekend to the Mountains of Colorado, second trip was to Vintage Rally in Colorado Springs (what a great time that was) last weekend.

Original counter top is avacado green as well as original carpet of the same color. Cherry cabinet wood has taken three cans of "Liquid Gold" and it will need another to bring the wood back to life. What a great product.

Carpet was added over the original, but when we removed it we found the original to be in great shape and we are going to keep it in place adding new runners that accent it very well.

Had trouble with faucets (single stem - they are Moen The only place you will find the name is if you pull the stems, it is marked on the stem)

Dealer tells me the company that built the air conditioner went out of business in 1971, Your chances of finding parts are zero and zero.

We replaced the cushions with foutons, cheap and already upholstered.

Tow vehicle is a Ford 15 Pass. van with a v-10. Lots of room in the van to carry all the goodies for the campground.
Good Luck ,

Me Too!

My 75 has the rear bath and in the center it has the double bed.
My bathroom seems like a dirty white color, and the kitchen countrer are an ugly looking yellow.
Just adding my 2 worth

The trailer was in fantastic shape when we purchased it, with the exception of the carpets and a need for a good scrubbing. Nothing like new carpets, dry-cleaned curtains, and lots of Pledge and Tilex to make a place feel like your own. We did find the ugly old orange carpet in the bottom of the closets. I've since pulled it all out of there and replaced with remnants left over from the new carpet job.

I pull with a 2002 2400HD GMC, 8.1 Vortec, and a Reese Dual Cam hitch. The trailer pulls wonderfully, and stands up like a champ to the 18-wheelers that blow past us doing 90+ MPH.

I could be wrong, but I would venture to say that there are more Sovereigns than any other model.

They are everywhere.
I owned a 79' model. You should see the Booth Dinette that I built for the Sovereign.

It belongs to Forum Member "Skip' now.
