1978 31’ Airstream Sovereign
Clean Nevada Title
Selling my 1978 31’ Airstream Sovereign. Purchased in 2021 with the intention of converting into a traveling, towable “tiny-ish” home that I’d planned to live in full time – she is pretty long, although perfect size for the intended project. I’m moving out of state and while I’d love to take her, not sure she’s quite up for a 1500 +/- mile trip. Tows great and completely without issue for short distances though.
Home base has almost exclusively been Nevada so completely without rust. I know she made two trips to Mexico and assume there were several others in the States. She did sit unused for quite a while (believed to be approximately 30 years). Took her down to the interior skins for an exhaustive, meticulous clean. Have begun the rebuild process including dual insulation with AES 1/4 inch Solid NASA Tech Heavy Duty Platinum Reflective Foam Core Reflective Insulation Barrier (exterior walls) and R-30 value insulation atop that (interior wall). Floor has been leveled and has QEP 72003Q 1/4-Inch/6mm Cork Underlayment atop that. Also laid TempZone Easy 120V Underfloor Heating mat which is prepped for wiring (with a separate thermostat that would be included), then an 8mm Heritage Walnut Laminate floating floor above it (have 3-4 unopened packages of the flooring I’m happy to include).
Has a pretty great body and frame. Does have one dent on the driver’s side front and the exterior window below that is missing, presumably those are related. Could use new tires and bearings – both pretty simple fixes.
Also purchased Lexicon Platinum 2138 Quartz Composite Single Bowl Kitchen sink and somehow ended up with two, a bunch of rivets, rivet gun, Dewalt DWP849 variable speed polisher, Cyclo Toolmakers 80-110/C-PG Model 5 Mark II Dual-Head Orbital Polisher with Backing Plates, polishing pads, 3 grades of NuVite polishing compound, an appropriately sized dorm size refrigerator, among a range of other items, that I’m willing to include.
Would make for a great camper, tiny home, AirBnB, or project for Burning Man!
Open to entertaining all reasonable offers.
Thanks for the interest and your consideration!
