2000 Fleetwood Wilderness Repair

Picked up this fleetwood earlier this summer from a family member. Was told it had a minor leak. First trip out extended the awning and the front lower pickup point ripped free from the rotted joist. Brought it home and opened it up.

Well.....looks like you have a challenging situation. Believe it or not, I have seen worse that turned out pretty good. Get it dried out and start replacing and rebuilding. You'll be surprised at how it will come together. And now you have a chance to beef up the area around the awning mount. Good luck and please keep us posted on your progress.

Always funny how it's just a little leak huh.

Maybe when people see the time involved in rot repair, they will understand why it costs so much.

Nice looking work. Take satisfaction in that you are building back better than original. Smart using the LVL due to great strength and rigidity. Thanks for the great pics.
