Replace Bathroom

Does anyone have a rough idea about how much it would be to install a new bathroom in a 73 Sovereign?

There are very few parts for a "new bathroom" in a 73. Airstream has next to no parts and a couple of dealers probably have more parts than the factory does.

But, all of them, no way.

New current parts are made for the wide body trailers.

What exactly is it that you want to do?

In terms of parts, or having someone else do the work?

We ripped out the entire bathroom & closet, replaced the toilet with a composting toilet and made our own showerpan, shower, vanity, etc. I fixed the rear end separation... it prob. ran $2k in parts (most expensive single item was the composting toilet), but it took a fair amount of time.
Certainly major repair work on older trailers is uneconomic here in the SF Bay area w/ $100+ shop labor rates.
