I can probably live with that price tag. Given a new one (that I'll likely still need to re-design because all new trailers are ugly) is well over 25k

Not "all" new trailers are ugly. I'm partial I admit, but 'Past Tents' is beautiful, inside and out.

The FIRST thing you need to do is go to a website such as Camping World and start pricing all the appliances you mention. Start with the stove, fridge and A/C. In fact, call them and see if they will give you a "ball park" figure as to what they would charge to install but I'm saying upwards from $50-75 an hour min.

Get a picture of it and take it to a local body shop to give them an idea of what you're wanting painted--- ESPECIALLY since you want the inside too! If you're looking for a high-grade "automotive" paint and clear coat such as the PPG, I'm going to say you're looking at $3-5K MIN! They will have to prep it by sanding, filling in any irregularities.....and I have NO clue how they would handle the interior...or if they even will!

So, with what I've just said, you're looking at apx $5-7000. Add that to your $3900 and you're at nearly $11,000. For a used trailer??? Not including God knows how much for new cushions, windows, probably inverter, lights..... What about suspension? Tires?

GOOD LUCK! If I wasnt going to do most of this work myself, I'd pass.

It's a 1973, paid $3900, but is conditional on a quote to have it completely re-done.

I want it completely re-painted (inside & out). Foams and cushions redone, new stove, new fridge, adding ac, new floors, new windows etc...

What do I need to know? Does it matter since we are re-doing it?

Thanks for your help!

I figured I was being a bit "conservative" but still trying to make a point. I definitely think you would be closer. This topic has gone very quiet all of a sudden...

We did a complete re-do for a 1975 13' Boler. Probably cost us $13,000 between Boler and parts - and the labour was all free!

Our redo included: fixing and painting the under-trailer; new floor; new upper and lower cabinets; new fridge, stove and sink; new battery installed inside the trailer, new permanent bed with mattress made to size and shape, new front dinette, new upholstery, new diamond plate backsplash, new white wall tires, new ceiling fan, new bike rack, new wiring everywhere, new paint job inside and out, new day/nite blinds, new door lock and hatch, new lights. It took two years of my father-in-law's time (off and on). We are glad we did it for various reasons, but it was not easy, cheap or quick. We hope it lasts us 25 years. It is less expensive than a new trailer, but not much less expensive than a relatively lightly used newer trailer. Good luck!

What happened to the pictures? I thought this was Show Us Your Rigs... not General Chat or Mods.

LOL - I posted our pics eons ago; I thought I pasted them into the reply; I do not know how to do either! Think I have it figured out now. These are slightly different photos from the ones I previously posted (I think).

I will say that our reno has some fairly ridiculous expensive items: the floor, the backsplash, the white wall tires, the blinds, the bed (estimate $500 for each one of those items) are all a fair bit more expensive than they need to be. Certainly other, less expensive and quite acceptable choices could have been made. The external paint job turned out to be quite expensive - not sure if we did something wrong if that is just the way it goes. I don't remember exactly, but perhaps around $800 in paint alone. The fridge, stove, sink and cabinets and various odds and ends were fairly expensive (maybe $2000 - all new from Scamp), but I don't think there is any good way to save money on those items (other than scavenging parts from other trailers).

oh yeah - plus new glass in all windows. Not super cheap, but no good way to reduce those costs either.
