Check out the rot ...


Some type of really CHEAP untreated OSB , unlike any OSB I've ever used... Real C**P!! Crumbled in the hand ... The black is the plastic "membrane" on the trailer bottom ... No attempt at sealing , not even glue to hold the flooring down ...What were they thinking ??? Now to check the other side ...

HP, the dealer moved away , likely for good reason too ...

Upon further checking /poking around , found that the rot extends to right under the door ... Pulled away all the loose material ... Big Hole now ...

So do I just cut away the bad stuff and scab in a new piece of wood .. I have some Good OSB .. well tested...to replace it .. and I'm thinking of sealing it , and the rest of the area , to lessen any further damage ...??? You guys have any ideas ???

WE replaced our painful couch with 2 small recliners. They are very lightweight & have foot rests. They look more like very nice lawn chairs than stuffed recliners but sit great. We use tv trays to eat on. Works Great!

TA, Thanks !!! That does sound Nice and Practical ... Removing our dinette sure gave us Lots more room (saved a lot of weight too )... and I found use for those cushions in my Cargo Trailer conversion ..

Got a call from a really Nice guy who works for an RV shop... He told me how to fix the TT myself and how to protect it in the future...
Trailer folks are just the Nicest people eh !!!!

Just a bit of extra "insurance" on the repair ... Today , I'm coating the board /floor area with my Min/poly penetrating sealer mix... Planning on putting carpet under the T&Cs... Don't want it to get soggy ...

Sometimes it's Not good to bring the wife in on these manly decisions...

Got her off the idea of bean bag chairs (we're too old for those ) So now she's on to just a couple folding chairs and TV trays ... Sure saves a Lot of weight over the now removed dinette ... But this may be a little too minimalist for comfort ...
Her logic is , if I want to recline , there's the bed and bunk ... I may have over emphasized the weight saving bits a little too much ... Women !!! ....grrrrrr!!!!

One trailer we had, wicker swivel chairs and a wicker chest worked wonderfully.

Do make sure you have the leak stopped. The area around the outside access hole is a prime suspect. Next check all of the seals around the corners and roof.

Nice Chair/Recliner Option

We picked up 4 of these, and knocked the price down even more by using a $20- President's Day Sale Coupon given to us in-Store.

They're really sturdy, and look nice. There's a nifty lil round 'Handle' on the Arms. You turn it a 1/4 turn, and that 'holds' as fixed - temporarily - whatever degree of 'reclined-ness' you want to sit at. Chair construction is beefy.

The webbing is taut, and provides a whole different level of comfort and support from 'Old School' Chairs. Folks will have to weigh in as to whether these Chairs are good looking enough for inside use. We think so, and they have the flexibility of being both Inside/Outside Chairs for us. My TT Fashion Coordinator saw them, so they met her exacting aesthetic criteria.
