Australian Airstreamers Import and Renovation Questions
Hey shiny silver aficionados!
I'm on the hunt for a 1970's Safari to ship to Australia to renovate and live in. There are a few older Aussie posts, but nothing recent so I'm looking for anyone with recent shipping experience that can recommend any companies to me (and provide any tips)?
I also have about a million questions re renovation, but the biggest/ broadest question from those with experience (which will depend on the state of the trailer I eventually find), is what renovation would you recommend having done in the US before exporting to Aus, and what would you have done in Aus?
I'm assuming a full frame up reno (or if I'm lucky I'd be very happy to find one that has been partially done, but not interiors). I realise options for people to help with reno will be more limited in Aus, but I'm assuming at least the labour component will be a lot cheaper? (factoring in terrible exchange rate). I'm also assuming I need electrics done locally in Aus?
Lots of questions and many assumptions based on much trawling through this fab site, so any tips or guidance very welcome.
If you have any Aussie friends who have imported I'd be very grateful for their contact deets if they are willing! Cheers!
