Also, I would like to do most of it myself, but any idea how much a complete reno would cost if done by "professionals"? I know I am a few grand in when replacing all the major systems. I have my share of experience with reno / repair on houses, but don't want to ruin this classic mobile.
Read the major restoration threads and ask questions
Unlike a house toilet the RV toilets must be mounted to the holding tank, which limits their placement. In some cases the tank can be moved
For sinks and showers there is always a way although in some cases a drain pump is necessary for the shower which has various drawbacks compared to a gravity system.
Typical complete handcrafted restorations usually run $20,000 in parts alone. Custom restoration by a specialist can easily exceed the cost of a new trailer
