Unhappy Slide Floor Problem

2004 Montana 5th Wheel. Water seepage has caused a rotted section on one end, entire floor needs R&R. Repair facility wants $5000.00 to do repair. I can do this repair myself, but need to find source for a 4' x 12', 3/4" thick piece of plywood. Keystone can supply the piece for $693.00. Any other sources out their that anyone knows about?

Hello and We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy our website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
I will make the floor using 3/4 Avantec plywood and biscuits in the seam. If there is a cabinet or dinette bench I can overlay a piece on the seam I will do that as well. Then cover with vapor barrier. Hopefully your wall has not gotten hit . Pics of your progress will be interesting to some of our members. Thank you.

Is there any way you could use tongue and groove 3/4 plywood and glue the seam?

I don't think the tongue and groove will provide enough strength.

Scarfing Plywood - NC Boatbuilder.com

Here is an option, it discusses using a scarf joint on 3/8" plywood, but using the same methodology you could use it to mate 3/4" pieces together. The glue is probably the most important part of this. It would also make sense to have the joint directly over one of the floor joist supports.

Hope you have the water leak fixed and tested before replacing the floor. Good luck.
