That's a very nice looking travel trailer you have, I'm glad you were able to post the pictures. My RV's a 1994 Class A HR (it's in my avatar). Now that you were successful you may want to post some interior pictures. Let's see now... 1969 does it have any harvest gold or avocado green appliances? Those old colors are beginning to come back in style and many people like that retro look. Anyhow, your RV looks like it was well taken care of by its previous owner (mine was a monument to neglect when I bought it.

I am in the process of repairing water damaged OSB sub-flooring that went under the side wall. Despite the difference in age, yours may not be much different than mine. At first, I used an oscillating tool with a straight blade and teeth on the end to cut through the OSB. If you have steel below the sub-floor use carbide blades, because the standard blades break easily when the hit the steel. Once I figured out the thickness, I used a circular saw, with the blade depth slightly less than the OSB thickness (avoiding contact with the steel structure below) to make a cut parallel to the wall and about 8" away from the wall. I then used various pry-bars to break the OSB off in chunks, and finally removed the part beneath the wall with a cat's paw and hammer. It is slow going if you want to avoid collateral damage. On mine, the aluminum wall framing is screwed through the edge of the OSB into the steel framing below. I managed to remove the screws without snapping any off. I used OSB scraps to support the wall as I removed the rotten wood, so that the outer skin of the RV would not be asked to bear any weight that could cause more serious damage. So far, so good. I have not yet begun reassembling everything, and will probably wait for warmer weather.

Sweet trailer! Do it right... Interior remodeling is a slippery slope!

77Travco yeah I'm noticing that most all remolding is slippery ;/// bathroom is almost done but the small section in the bedroom is going to be the hardest.

we are living in our trailer full timers ) so learning all things is important to us
