1973 Airstream Land Yacht TradeWind 25'

Hello Everyone,

I'm in La Ventana, Baja, Mexico. I bought this Airstream for 1,800 usd (Was I ripped off?). its history as far as I know is that someone brought it around 10 years ago, put it in his lot and then he sold the lot with the Airstream in it last year, (without papers). The new owner then got rid of it by selling it to me. It was moved 2 miles to my place which was probably the last major travel of its life .

My plan is to get rid of everything, kitchen and bathroom included, and convert it into a bedroom with a queen bed, sofa and thats it. I'm gonna build an outside bathroom and kitchen.

The major problem I see is the collapsed "subfloor"? in the bathroom area. If I'm not going to travel in it, can I just do nothing about it? I might change some of the plywood or all of it, I dont know if I should take any special consideration to it on the side without metal.

Can I just paint over the walls as it is?

Any idea what to put where the plastic that cover the wheels is supposed to go? Im thinking righ now of just a wood box.

Any special ideas, considerations or advice?

Thanks, sorry If I asked some stupid questions.
