Now for the fun part.....

69' Overlander is down to the ribs on the interior, chassis just back from sandblasting and powder coating. I have a blank canvas. I have a new interior designed however all support systems need to be redesigned/replaced- electrical, plumbing prior to reassembly of the shell to the trailer....
Does anyone know of a resource for that level of service?

If I understand correctly what you are saying.. I do not believe that you need to have all support systems redesigned/replaced prior to reassembly of the shell to the trailer.

In my case all that I had done before I put the shell back on was.. water and waste tanks and axles.
That done.. put the subfloor on and then reattached the shell.
I still haven't put in the fresh water line or gas lines underneath. When I do, it will be a matter then of drilling holes through the floor where I want the lines to come up.

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

To have someone do it could actually cost a lot more than you might imagine. I have heard prices quoted for that type of work into six figures. One source was from a friend that, like you, had done the "hard part": reno on the frame, leakproofing the shell.

For that money, there are a lot of great trailers out there that are ready to travel, and won't take the year or so that what you want might take.

Do you have a idea of your budget?
