Rehabbing 1968 30' Sovereign Quickly .. NEED HELP!

We just bought a 1968 30' sovereign on ebay last week. The AS is in PA and we are currently in MI. I hope to post some pics of the Ebay listing soon.

Hubby and I are under a time crunch to rehab and live in the AS. We are thinking of leaving MI to rehab the AS somewhere warm.

We can go just about anywhere in the US. But, since I'm disabled and can only help so much, hubby will need help ripping old carpet out and updating. I'm wondering if there is anyone or lower cost places where we can buy us some knowledge and muscle power?

He needs a rehab buddy, someone to advise, and to help him do it. We have to move out of my mother's house by the end of September (thanks MOM!) and pick up the AS. Our thoughts were to wrap up things in MI and drive to PA and then drive the AS to whatever location we could rent space to rehab it in (we could pay for electricity and utilities). We also have to pick up/sell some stuff in Chicago that we put into storage when I rushed to MI to live with and take care of my ailing mother.

I have a tempurpedic queen size mattress I'd like to put in the AS due to back issues, and the bathroom looks like it needs new flooring/toilet. Other than that, I really don't know what repairs will have to be made based on the few pics from the ebay listing.

I'm thinking of having hubby outfit the back of his pickup truck with a tool chest, as we will need to bring his tools with us for the rehab project.

If you guys know of any place that would be a better place for us to go, or have in mind someone who would like to help us rehab for reasonable pay or barter (hubby has carpentry, electric, automotive, and computer skills), please respond. We need to have a place to live ASAP, and I would like to be in my comfy AS soon.

Thanks for reading!

You might want to research private campgrounds. Many have programs that trade labor for campsites. And your husband has the kind of skills that wood be required.
