buy 1979 International Sovereign?

Hello, newbie here. purchased my first airstream, a 1973 tradewind, last december for 3,000, put 4000 into it: repaired frame, replaced subfloor, new water pump, etc. etc. now up on blocks on a hillside and it is heaven on earth.
looking at buying a 1979 international sovereign for about 2500 to convert into an art studio on this same property.

am i nuts? it is filthy with mouse poop, as was the other one, tacky plastic everything, horrible upholstery, nasty rug, two tiny dents on the frame, not sure what works, no water damage apparent, owner says things work he's pretty sure (but not positive).

on the other hand, couldn't come close to building a studio new complete with kitchen and bathroom AND i've been bitten by the Airstream bug. Haven't let myself sign on til now because I can see where this is going. I'm excited about learning to do a lot of what i paid for myself. visions of sawsall taking that plastic stuff out!
