I am considering buying a 22 foot '57 Globestar camper. It is all original but the outside back lower compartment is rotted. The interior floor is new as is the plumbing but the exterior back side seams are open which I suppose let the water in. Is this wood replacement usually a costly repair? The rest of the camper looks sound and there are no stains on the ceiling. I would not be doing the work myself.
Thanks for any help!
Sounds like it needs some TLC. But might be a nice camper after some work.
This will be some work, but if you have time and a retired carpenter or handy friend you might be camping in a few months. There's many water damage repair members posts in our Members Restoration albums center of our home page. These will give you and idea of the work involved. Be prepared to "go deep" however since one really never knows how far the damage leads and what external and internal stuff needs to be removed before new wood can be cut and installed. let us know how it goes and post more questions as they arise.. and I'm sure they will :) pat
