Ok, so I have read and read all different forums concerning renovating a airstream but I cant find the questions that I want answers for. So here are a few questions for airstream renovators.
I have a 1959
24' Tradewind in need of some renovations, when I purchased it I noticed the floor in the front was rotten but in the rear is ok. All of the appliances work, Fridge is a Dometic and propane only, It cools great. The furnace works, the stove and oven works great, water heater works and no leaks, Holding tanks do not leak and toilet and shower works great. I have replaced the damaged floor and am getting ready to reinstall the walls and kitchen with appliances, but before I do should I
1. Upgrade all the wiring- It all presently works and all lights work. But it only has the two prong plug outlets. I would have to remove all of the old wiring and replace it. Will this affect the resale price or originality?
2. It has the cast iron plumbing, but no leaks and solid. Should I replace all the drain and vent pipes? Will this affect the resale or originality?
3. It has all copper water lines, should I replace these or keep them. They do not leak or have any corrosion, will this affect the resale or originality?
4. All of the cabinets are in pretty good shape, I dont think I will have to refinish these, Just some minor repairs.
5. The interior finish is good. I just need to clean the Zolatone finish.
6. What is the most desirable flooring for the vintage airstream of this year?
I am going to be selling this after the renovations, I dont want to devalue it in anyway.
Thanks for all the help
