Can I come by your shop? I don't know much about airstreams, but I might want one.

Yes, we welcome people with any level of knowledge and experience. Our initial consultations are $100, and we'll take an hour to talk you through everything we can and figure out your needs.

We'd like to have everyone by for no cost, but as young business owners with young families, we simply don't have the time.

 

I have a trailer that needs work. Can i bring it by your shop?

Yes. We charge $300 for a full inspection of the propane, plumbing, and electrical systems, as well as an assessment of running gear, exterior repairs, etc.

 

 A repaired frame. Notice the new outriggers, new center supports, and new wheel wells.

Why do you cost more than other companies?

We prioritize safety above all else. For us, that means that every 30, 40, or 50-year-old trailer on the road needs repair to its steel frame. Otherwise, the trailer will fall apart on the road, endangering everyone. 

To that end, we usually won't work on a trailer without tearing up the floor, removing the walls, and rebuilding the frame. (There are, of course, exceptions). Framework costs money.

Several vintage trailer renovation companies exist and are willing to build on top of suspect frames. If you'd like to go that route, speak to them.

 

can you just make it work? I'm trying to "flip it" 

This kind of work is probably better suited for a large RV repair shop like Camping World.

Can you do some work and then I'll Do the finishing?

Probably not. If we do the "Airstream Specific" work and then you attach cabinetry and build a bed or two, we'll still have to come in later and wire the remaining electrical correctly, finish the plumbing, finish the propane, and more. Breaking up the building process leaves you with an inferior product, and we aren't willing to compromise your safety or satisfaction.

How much does this cost?

This is hard to answer, but here are some guidelines.

Expect to pay $50,000-$100,000 for a full custom build from us.

For repairs, expect to pay at least $20,000 for a functioning shell: new frame, new insulation, new walls.
