68 sovereign bath question

Hello all. My wife and I just bought a 68' Soverign. It needs help, lots. Here is my question you buy a trailer a few dents here and there mainly up on roof. interior, New ref, oven and stove there, AC works, we would like to redo the interior to a modern look like we have seen in the gallery, The Plastic on the back of the toilet is broken and pieces missing. The shower is there and looks like it should work but it looks as though all of the plastic in the bath interlocks? So can the toilet and vanity be replaced and keep the shower? Or is it easier and more cost effective to just gut the whole thing and replace everything? Also can/ could you adapt houshold fixtures like shower ext to the trailer or do you need to stay with trailer parts. Like I said I am not going for all original on the interior. Also can the dents be poped out perminantly or do the pannels need replacing? I have delayed getting started so when I begin my tear out I can start putting back. Should I go ahaed and pull the belly skins to get an idea of whats under there. Those of you who have done this before me did you redo all plumbing and electrical so you finished with a new trailer or did you leave what worked alone? I know its alot of questions but looking to get started in the right direction.

Did I menchon we named her Pandora?

Unfortunately the woman we bought her from knew less than I do about the trailer. How thats possible I don't know. But after paying her and putting four new tires on she pulled six hours home with out a problem other than the door flying open going over a rough bridge.

I've just completed a complete redo in my '68 Tradewind - check out your floors, clean out the belly, pop off some bug bombs and get ready to do some serious cleaning. I always use regular household faucets (in my boats, rv's etc). In my bathroom, I cut out the top/sink and put a new vanity in. I made a plywood top and now ready to replace it with granite. I've removed the fiberglass shroud behind the toilet and wall area (twice) spray painted it and replaced using ss screws. You are lucky to have newer appliances. Water pump replacment from West Marine along with other electrical parts. www.westmarine.com they have a good website with a virtual annual catalog. Good luck.
