Palm Springs Area? How much do we dump in this beauty?

Hi All
We got our 1970 land yacht..paid $5700...Its been fixed up but it looks like no electrical and we dont know about the plumbing, ect...I'm thinking that even if we put another $5000 into it..its still a good investment...We need someone to look at it...Anybody out there in the desert? Palm springs, Indio? Thanks for any help, advice

Take it to a shop?

You may want to consider taking it over the hill (so to speak..) and having either Andy at Inland RV in Corona, or Ron at C & G Airstream Service in Bellflower take a look at it, and give you their opinions and estimates..

You may well choose to do work yourself, but should at least be able to avoid horrible surprises with a professional evaluation, before you start dropping serious money into restoration...

If the frame or axles or primary electrical are shot, or it has been a mouse-house for a long time, you'll drop $5K before you get very close to the fancy stuff like applainces and interior trim...
