Moving all plumbing

Just got a 1967 30' Sovereign and will be looking at possibly gutting whole thing. Can the plumbing be moved just about anywhere on the trailer? Bath is in the rear, thinking of making the rear a bedroom with new bath just forward of it on one side or splitting to both sides. 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.

I suppose moving the bathroom will be determined by your ability and desire to move or replace the holding tanks.

A full renovation by a liar is $10,000. The truth might be 5x that.

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
