31’ 1974 Airstream Sovereign

This Airstream was converted into a tiny home style trailer by another couple around 2015 with some additional changes since. Title in hand and ready to sell. Located in Sacramento, CA and must have own truck to move or arrange for flat-bed shipping.

It has been outfitted with one of the best tubs I’ve ever had the pleasure to soak in. Wood floors, double sinks, washer/drier combo hookups, instant water heater, Wedgewood antique stove, memory foam mattress, and a wood burning stove that can be swapped out where we currently have an A/C. If you so desire, there is an existing/original spot to place a rooftop A/C and I’ve run a drain pipe down the interior wall for it to be hooked up to.

Since owning it I have given the exterior a little polish with a buffer and aluminum polish, but not to mirror finish. I’ve swapped out the running lights for LED, fixed some wiring issues, and also fixed the scare and door lights. I’ve also removed most of the interior panels (from the waist level, up), and re-did the insulation with 2 layers of reflectix sandwiching a thin amount of fiberglass batting. I added new 12v LED lights from Vintage Airstream under the front cabinet, in the bed area, and in the kitchen and bathroom areas. Finally, I dropped the center panel slightly to add in Philips Hue LED light strips. I’ve affixed it to the rails with stainless steel screws if you need to access the central channel for any reason. No more need to drill out rivets for repairs. The wifi router and Philips Hue hub are inside the front cabinet where I’ve added a 120v plug.

If you are looking to place it on some property and not tow much, you are pretty much good to go with this! Pick some curtains and paint then replace or fix the two roof vents (I think the plunger to tell them when they are open is gunked up). There are also a few dents in the aluminum, but nothing out of line for a vintage trailer.

If you plan to do a lot of towing I would suggest replacing the axles. I did tow it from Portland, OR to central CA and around the area a little without issue, but I think they are the original 1974 axles and hubs. The electric brakes do work. I have not had the belly pans off so I do not know the condition of the frame. While it is not a perfect trailer, it is a good one. It has been stored indoors for the last 1.5 years in Sacramento, CA.
