I run a overlanding custom shop, Sovereign Road Customs, in Katy, TX. I also specialize in vintage campers and Airstreams. I purchased Mablene as a personal long-term project when business was slow. It can be difficult to determine which project Airstream makes the most sense. All will need extensive work done, but most are purchased with more questions than answers. In this case, you know exactly what you are getting as we have done the necessary tear out and inspections.

This 1976 Sovereign was well cared for by the previous owners, who travelled extensively in her for over two decades until their health necessitated finding a new home. I selected this trailer and drove nearly 2,000 miles round trip to pick her up. The originality and condition of the exterior (panels, wheels, glass, etc.) makes this an excellent candidate for a restoration or renovation. Unfortunately, I just don't have the space or bandwidth for multiple Airstream projects on top of client jobs. So I am reluctantly passing this diamond in the rough along to a new home.

At this point, Mablene is ready for her shell-off restoration. The original frame has rust damage, that is repairable. I towed this trailer over 800 miles to our shop without issue so it will get where you need it to go. However I have another Sovereign trailer frame in great condition (trailer only, no shell) with subfloor and wiring that I will sell with the Airstream. The shell needs to be removed for the restoration, so transferring it to the other frame will not require any additional work and will save several thousand dollars by not repairing the existing frame. This means you actually receive two trailers with separate titles and VINs. The rust damaged trailer still has value as it is titled and repairable.

Much of the necessary tear out has been professionally completed, saving you dozens of hours of labor and frustration. What remains from this point is personal preference. At 31 feet, she is perfect for an off-grid tiny home, food truck or any other traveling business.

I am happy to answer any questions or schedule a showing.
