"Thanks Jimco I appreciate your reply. I'm excited that it will work cuz I was really not wanting to take up the whole floor. I'm excited to get things moving along. You're right I have not seen very many of these. And I have looked!"

"Hi Angie, nice Winnebago camper. Installing a plywood floor cover should fix your rv. We do not see many of these 70's models."

"If there is rot in the bad places it must be cut out or it will keep spreading. Even if you cover it. If its not rotten soft wood then covering it will work."

The floor

Hi guys,I want to run some ideas by you. My husband had a day off yesterday and so he's out there with me and the trailer. I'm looking at the floors and seeing where and how to fix the spots that need to be fixed. Ideally I would replace the whole floor, but I just don't want to mess with the walls at all so I'm planning on patching some spots.Well, my husband wants to just put a new plywood floor over the existing floor.

So an RV or TT would be…See More
