Repairing the Floor

Duration: 28:46

Uh oh… Trouble in paradise! Turns out there were some bad spots in the floor. You never really know what you’re dealing with until you get to work. We’ll have to replace the plywood and some of the floor joists. Watch to see how we tackle this sticky situation.

      I decided against treated lumber because I didn’t want it off gassing chemicals into the camper. Theoretically, the material shouldn’t get wet. It’s protected by fabric on the under side, and (hopefully) stays dry on the inside. Barring a leak….. I understand the idea of using treated material as an insurance policy against future moisture issues, but I don’t think it’d be a good idea for it to have the opportunity to vent inside the living space.

    My floor has 1/4 ply top foam insulation and the bottom is 1/4 ply .. where do I get that material to fix my floor. Grand Design Imagine 26′ says longer season.. so top wet bottom wet cut it open and not sure how far to remove if cant find replacement as the foam insulation is not a standard size usually 🙂

    Forgot to mention what type of plank flooring can be used after I fix it. On retailer said material not good below 40 and that would be on the high side storing for the winder.. usually 35 and below. .Buffalo0 NY

      Hi, Toby. I wish I could help you source your material, but I’m figuring this project out as I go. I was lucky on this trailer, everything was basically construction grade material I could get from a lumber yard. My suggestion is to call camper service centers to see if they can source what you’re looking for, or point you in the right direction.
