Cost to restore a gutted Airstream

How much could one spend on restoring a 1967? 25' Airstream trailer? I don't know if it still has any of the holding tanks, but the toilet and stove are still suppose to be there. the windows don't leak and the running gear is suppose to be in good condition.

I'm not looking to do a compleate original as in Airstream restore, but one that looks some what like it but the way I want it.

Corbin. Airstream did not build a 67 25 foot trailer. What you may or must do depends on several factors. Please list the serial number, and we then can better help you.

I don't have the serial number for this unit and it very well could have been a 26' Airstream of that year.

The REAL question is...

How much do you WANT to spend? The amount you actually spend will vary depending on whether you will be doing work yourself or farming it out to others to do. How proficient at wood working are you? What level of quality are you going to be satisfied with or how many "bells & whistles" are you going to want?

To see what $150,000 will buy check out the Ralph Lauren Trailer thread/poll.

Another one you may want to check out is the Spending This Year thread/poll.

Good luck on your research...

Shari

Draco....let's Start Out With The Basics To See If We Can Identify Your Airstream Trailer. There Should Be An Airstream Plate Near The Entry Door To Your Trailer. Most Of Them Are To The Right Of The Door. They Identify The Model Of The Trailer...ie....Safari, Tradewind, Sovereign, Globetrotter...etc. Between The Airstream Name Plate And The Model Name On The Same Plate Should Be A Set Of Letters And Numbers That Make Up Your Serial Number. See If You Can Locate Them And It Will Help Us Identify Your Trailer By Model , Year, And Length. Hope This Helps You, Big Ed

Regardless of year there are a few things all Airstreams have in common.

One of the base figures I came up with for my 1967 28 foot Ambassador for the "utilities" i.e. water heater, water tank, black tank, water pump, furnace and A/C was some where around $3500.00, there is a lot to consider when pricing out a project like this. Do you want new or can you live with used items. Does it have to be OEM or can you live with a aftermarket item. Don't get dicouraged by the scale of the project, just keep your head, keep your eyes open and your ears open.

If you are thinking of joining the 1966-1968 Curved Corning Club , you will have a lot of help and support here. There are at least 4 of us stripping these coaches down to the skin if not further and rebuilding.

It must be another slow day here on the forums, you guys are replying to a three year old thread, and the original poster hasn't made any more posts since the one he made at that time. I guess we scared him off.

Send a message via AIM to bredlo
Doesn't that make you feel SOOOO silly? I've done that once or twice, and then I smack my forehead. There oughta be a warning message that pops up when you hit reply that says,

"Alert: You're responding to a several years old post. Is what you have to say really that important... or are you just blind?"

On many forums that I am a member of, threads get locked after a certain period of inactivity. The info remains searchable, you just can't submit a reply. If you want to comment, you have to start a new post and you can link to the locked thread. That way it is a consious decision on your part.
