They are not like houses were you can expect to flip for a profit. So sell it for what you can, let someone else invest their time/money.
From everything I've heard/read this is true. Actually if you think it's worth PAYING $5 an hour to work on an Airstream (deducted from cost of materials) you "should normally" be able to sell it and break even for the rest of the cost of materials.
Important to realize, right now with the Covid caused shortage of RVs, prices are artificially high. This means you can get an extra 10-30% more money now for the same condition RV then when prices are more normal. This means if you take more then a year to renovate you might get less then you could get now.
