fixing up a TT

When I replace the floors and a couple walls should I do like I would if I was doing it to a house? Is there any certain way that I'm supposed to do it?

S89, It's similar to a house , but each trailer has it's own construction methods ... seems to be many variations... Best research the particulars on Your trailer , see how it's put together ... And you must do some waterproofing too... things you wouldn't necessarily do in your house ...

When we redid the floor and cabinets in our old popup (1976 Coleman Valley Forge) a few years ago, I took LOTS of pictures as things were removed/disassembled. That way there were no surprises when it came time to replace the interior. Used many of the old parts as templates for the new, made sure wood thickness was similar (couldn't get exact dimension on floor). Used exterior roof plywood for the floor and sealed the bottom side (before installing).

Good Luck
