I found a name in the appropriate section here for an inspection and am waiting for a response although I feel a bit uncomfortable having someone do this without compensation. Maybe a charitable donation?
Anyway, I would like some information on the differences between the Excella, 500 series, 1,000 series, wide body, etc.
I would probably be changing out the decor, wallpaer, counter and adding some kind of wood floor. I assume a regular contractor could handle this?
My intention is to full time and this seems like a fun way to do it.
Any comments would be much appreciated.
I would not suggest a "regular" contractor, since they know nothing about an Airstream.
Use someone that specializes in Airstream remodeling or the like.
What you can and cannot do with an Airstream is very different from a house.
Payloads, weight and balance, axles, plumbing, heating, AC, low voltage systems, gaskets, water leaks, brakes, are all different.
