Axles, brakes and shocks are wear out items for sure. Expect about $750 each and add the cost of horizontal shocks to that. It's needed if you plan on doing some serious traveling with your Airstream.

Looks like you have a hefty project going on there. Might as well clean and inspect, repair as needed and paint the frame. Then there is that subfloor. And how about a gray water tank? Might as well re-plumb the trailer. And on, and on. It is a slippery slope indeed.
