A friend's camper has been leaking for some time apparently and has rotted out the floor, ledger and joists. The local camper sales/service place wanted $2000 and one month to do the repair I just did for $240 in materials and 30 hours labor.
I've been avoiding the rotten floor around our RV refrigerator for weeks. I didn't want to know what was going to be underneath the tile... I finally finished the project and we're very pleased with the results.
Sorry for the shaky video, I forgot my tripod on the first day.

Finely getting around to replacing my water damaged / rotten floor in my 2007 Desert Fox AF 24 Toy Hauler . This has been quite a job so far. There is a lot to go into on a repair like this so this will be part 1 of 2. This is not a how too video this is how I am doing it . I hope maybe this may help someone else with a similar issue see just what all is involved on a job like this.
the bathroom floor in my 1978 GMC Diplomat motorhome has been rotting away for what looks like several years with a previous poor repair, but the water issue was never fixed. so u decided to tear the bathroom apart and with the help of my dad we replaced the floor with pressure treated 3/4" plywood.
I replaced the front half of my camper floor - for the second time - in the Spring of 2017. Took about 50 hours over the course of 14 days to completely replace the floor from the chassis up. Wasn't planning on such an extensive project, but after getting into it and seeing the water damage, no choice but a total replacement. Here's a link to my blog post about it: http://gr8lakescamper.blogspot.com/2017/07/rv-camper-floor-replacement-20-this.html#.WVugQtMrLOQ
Here is part 2 of the water damage floor repair. Got it all back together this week finally. It was a lot of hard work but its all done. I have fixed every thing that needed fixing on my toy hauler camper over a 10 month time frame. Man I'm glad its done. This will make me a nice temporary home if I need it to.
A common problem with replacing sub-floor is how to provide adequate support of the newly formed and installed flooring edges. I show the entire process from lay out and demolition to installing new flooring structures, 'blocking' and the new sub-flooring ready for carpet.

I this video we talk about how we replaced the flooring in our RV slide out a 2008 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 32LA. We had done a previous video but found a way to make it more secure and wanted to pass that information along.
