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.

Sorry for the shaky video, I forgot my tripod on the first day.

This video is part 1 of a 30 minute video demonstrating how Gulf Stream Service Technicians replace a slide out floor without removing the entire slide out. This part focuses on a main/living room slide. Some details are covered in more detail in part 2.
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.
