If you are handy (and it sounds like you are), it could be a good value for you and you'd get to learn how all the pieces fit together.  It's quite intesting to see why/how they all go together.  I basically did the same thing to my old Eagle.  I didn't have access to a welder, etc. so used ATC and other sources (friends, etc.).  I replaced pretty much everything.  I probably spent $6k on the major components (vinyl, push boards, matress pad, replaced all the roof screws, sealed it up, most of the battery wiring, new battery, etc.).  I took everything apart/out and replaced it all (furnace jets, refrigerator parts, etc., etc.).  I found some old 3/8" corian and replaced the counters.  The vinyl and pushboards were done at ATC.  I also had ATC put on jack mounts and bought jacks.  In the end, it was worth it and took me a while.  You can do it if you have time and don't need the camper this year.
