1970 Airstream Sovereign 31 - Illinois

Awesome, ready to roll Vintage Airstream. We have owned her for 20 years and have continuously maintained and updated her. Thank you for looking.

Do you have any additional pictures? We've been looking for one for quite a while now. Can you give us any more information such as any repairs that are needed, any soft spots in flooring, etc. It looks great from the pictures you've posted! We're in Texas so we're sorry for the questions but it makes it hard to come take a look in person. Thanks so much!

No major repairs are needed. As noted the AC operates but does not blow cold air. It is an Armstrong unit, I replaced the compressor around 2010, it worked fine until it sprung a leak. At that point I gave up. We typically camped in spring or fall so we had no real need for AC. There are no soft spots anywhere.

Cosmetically the clearcoat was stripped and polished in 2001. The blue striping is long gone and could use a little paint. There is no rear end sag, that was addressed around 2010. New outriggers were welded in place and the C channel was backed with steel bar stock. She was buttoned up with flashing in place to redirect water away from the trailer to bumper joint.

More interior pictures, this unit originally had an oven. We filled The hole that was left behind with a decorative metal panel and a shade for privacy.

The tires were new last summer. This Airstream has two outside storage areas. The curbside are his smaller and has the converter in it. The rear area houses the battery and an external hose hookup along with black tank cleanout access. Also there is sewer hose storage under the bumper lid where the black tank access is.

Looks like a nice trailer at a fair price, this one won't last long.

I appreciate the kind words. This has been our baby for 20 years. We got mom and dad and brother all into Airstreams. It has been fun attending local rallys with the family and showing the yearly improvements.

I completely understand, we travelled to Arkansas to purchase our current Airstream (a 34ft slide out). We took the time to ask questions and when we felt comfortable we made our decision.
