Remodel vs Restore

Like many first timers I've gone down a few paths. I started with the restoration thread, how cool would that be... oh wait maybe not.

I then figured I'll buy new, or maybe later model. T

hen I got to thinking a bit..

It seems like an older, maybe not quite vintage, trailer, say 90's era, might be an interesting opportunity to mix a bit of both worlds.

These era trailers seem to have the size and amenities, but may not be so old as to have structural issues. I've come across several really nice looking trailers on the interwebs where folks have replaced cabinets, appliances and upholstery and flooring and come away with stunning designs. I'm not looking to restore to the orginal, I'd like to upgrade, lighten and make it my own.

Seems to me a $15K 90's vintage rig in good shape could yield a nice canvas to work from without the horror of an off frame mess. Even if I put $10K into it, I'd be in good shape compared to one that's say 5yrs old with a floor plan that I've settled on

I bet someone has an option....
