How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Here is a link to the pics of the camper. Hope someone could give me some answers about it. The only thing I can find is that it was made in Indiana. I can not find any like it. I have been able to find some from the 1930's and 40's. I'm wanting to restore. Would love some pics of others like it. I am wanting to make the bathroom bigger and restore the entire inside and out. Not sure how or where to start. Want to do it all myself. Thinking the first thing is to figure out a layout. Not sure if we need to move bathroom to make it bigger and how hard that would be. Need parts that resemble the age of the camper (1971 21 ft covered wagon camper) for a decent price. Need to put air conditioner in and repaint. Lots of ideas but not sure where and how to start. All advise welcome.

I had a TT unit a while back that I did a rebuild on and inside one of the closets there was a sheet posted that had all the builders information on it. Day and date of manufacture, all the builder installed appliances etc.

Your rebuild looks like a fun re-manufacture project and if you are going to install roof air please make sure it is in a location that will be able to hold the weight of the unit. When I installed the one in our TT I put it where there was a wall corner below which indicated to me the most secure position of support.

Do have fun and keep us posted.
