I'm considering obtaining an Airstream for seasonal, or a possible full-time home. I have Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and I understand these can be converted into a safe space.
As some of you probably know, there is a company that does MCS conversions: Healthy Homes :: Home
It looks like they do good work, but from what I can gather, their prices are higher than other restorers. For this reason, I'm thinking about hiring a local trailer shop for the frame and axle, and a local carpenter.
The above mentioned link has a 1954
AS, which was gutted, and buffed for $25,000. This seems overpriced by $20,000. Thoughts?
Labour to rebuild a trailer should be cost competitive, so the only difference in the renovation cost should be materials. I'm thinking that it can't be tens of thousands more to build one with non toxic materals (no formaldehyde, or wood, but lots of metal).
If anyone could give me a ball park for what such a renovation would cost, that would be terrific.
Thanks a bunch.
