Smile Black mold

I haven't pulled the roof off yet. So as far as black mold goes I guess I won't know the answer to that until I pull the roof. There are no water stains inside the rig. Nothing on the carpet,walls or ceiling only the ceiling is wavy in the front half. I have given myself a $10,000 budget to update the rig. I figure if spent that amount or more on a used rig I still wouldn't know the history of use and would have to replace parts in the used rig anyway. So if I do all the labor than the budget would go for parts. I have my own shop with air staplers and carpenter tools.also have a two story barn all enclosed but the main doors are only 8'x8' so the rig sits outside on 6 acres of land. I hate to invest in another building for the 5er. so I am trying to figure out a temporary cover to do roof repair. Thanks for all the input it has been a great help

Pull a shed roof of one of the sides of the barn high enuf to stand under it. Use the rippled or wavy fibreglass or plastic. Come out far enough to allow work with sildes deployed. Sink some 4x4s or 6x6's in to support the roof.

That is a great idea. The only problem I have is the barn is surrounded with large oak trees close to the sides. I thought of putting scaffolding around the 5er and makeshift some kind of roof.

Would it be to hard to make the doors of your barn bigger? it would be nice to have this project inside, it could 4-5 months or longer for a rebuild, also now that you are retired you might have another reason to have bigger doors in a work shop, its amazing how project pop up when you retire.

If you want a project, fix it.

If you want to go camping, buy another trailer.

Well "The Barn" as my better half likes to call it. I built 12yrs. ago was supposed to be a craft barn for the wife. The footprint is40'x30' exterior is vinyl lap. The interior is dry walled. Ceiling is 25' has central air & heat. The loft extends half the length of the barn with built-in cabinets around all the walls with work benches. So even if I enlarged the doors the 5er would not fit.

Buy an Alaskan Mill, cut down the frigging oak trees, mill the lumber, call the Amish and have them build an addition to damn barn.

Just go to work on it. If the weather turns bad put a tarp on it. You don't need a roof just to work on a roof. Good grief, talk about getting carried away. Fix it or don't. Make that Five. Lol.
