Welcome to the forums, and congrats on the new purchase!! We were set on keeping our '71 original as well; then we started accumulating older trailers that seemed "more worthy" of preservation. So we're talking about customizing the '71 after we're done reworking the other two, but we'll see how we feel down the road. We're perfectly happy using it in original condition for now. I'd say whatever is going to give you the best enjoyment and use of your AS is what you should do.
Congrats again, and we'll look for you on the road when we're visiting our relatives in your area!!!
