I hope campers aren't like boats... The only 2 days they're worth a damn is the day you buy them and the day you sell them...
I bought this 24' Shasta for $750. All the mechanical's work except for the lights. I've already replaced all of them minus the tail lights just because of the work being done on the wall. The frig, furnace, stove, hot water heater, water pump all work great. The roll out canvas is brand new. The fresh water holding tank is going to be replaced with a new one though.
Well, there was a spot in the bedroom on the paneling that was rotten so we were going to repanel the entire back half over top of the old, then I pulled on the bad spot and seen the black wood... UH OH. Here's what was under it.
The tear down of the wall is complete. I did it carefully because 1, I don't know what the heck I'm doing and 2, I wanted to save the cabinetry. I knew one corner of the floor needed replaced but after all the in and out and pressure on the floor from the tear down I find the whole back half of the floor needs replaced also.
NOW the rebuilding begins. I only have to rebuild the road side corner, the curbside is in great shape. Then the whole floor.
I forgot to find out today if I can rent one of those huge staple guns. That's what they used to construct it. They're about 2 1/2" wide. Anyone know? Anyone here have any suggestions as to the strongest way to splice into the good wood or would you just reframe the entire back end?
