Seattle Airstream Gurus
Hi, I recently purchased a 25í Airstream, double axle, with hitch and jacks. I know it needs new tires, but itís towable from the sellerís home to my property in Seattle, WA.
It needs everything, and I have no skills. I also need to live in it by about mid-Oct if possible. I realize that's kind of an insane idea/timeline. I'm looking for someone in the Seattle area to help me get this trailer into shape. I can't afford to have it towed down to CA or another state to have someone work on it. So, would love to know of anyone people can recommend. I have an electrician and a plumber. I have a simple plan. I'll try to attach it and photos.
Hereís what I know it needs (I have no idea what someone who knows what theyíre doing will say it needs): Surface rust removed from bottom of trailer and from hitch, then covered with rustproof paint. New subfloor and floor, electrical (I think I have someone for this), plumbing (I think I have someone for this), insulation (I hope to use wool or something eco), walls to cover the insulation (can I just order panels from Airstream?), then a wall with a slide-in door to create a bedroom on one end, a little room for a bathroom, and some cabinets installed. Waterproofed, a new window, and other repairs. I can get it polished later.
I want to use as many salvaged items and eco materials as possible. I want to keep it pretty basic because Iím on disability and canít afford much. Hoping to do some bartering for labor (Iím a writer and web designers). Thanks in advance for any advice/contacts.
