Winnebago Class C Cab Floor Rebuild help
Hello, I am new to the RV world. We purchased a 1991 Winnebago Warrior in September, the person we purchased from said it had leaked at one time but he thought the leak was fixed.
I started to do some renovations, like painting the walls and we removed the carpets and put in the vinyl flooring that looks like wood planks. It rained for many days here and when I went to remove the cushions over the bunk they were wet. My son started to remove floor, we noticed that the nose was covered with little pieces of rug and the wood frame around the floor under the side was rotted, The wood that was supposed to be under the nose piece was completely missing. There was no framing on the floor, just solid board.
I looked up several videos on replacing the floors. I could not find one on the Winnebago. The floors were solid 3/4 plywood with no insulation or frames, as I had seen in the videos I looked up. I believe it may have been replaced before. On the left side the floor went to the wall, on the right side when I was trying to get the board out I realize it went under the side wall.
The side walls have styrofoam insulation, which seems ok on one side, the other side has a hole in it, probably from a rat. The front wall has the long pieces of board which are rotted and then the solid wood on the sides of the window which seem ok. I figured out today, how to get to the screws under the side wall to remove the board.
I would like to replace the missing pieces of wood under the nose and the side walls before replacing the floors. I have some questions if anyone knows the answers.
Can you sand the board that is left after removing the wall paper and what you can get off scraping off of the styrofoam wall or do you just leave whats left of the luan board and glue on top of it. I do not want to do wall paper but I would like to put up maybe paneling. IF I take the screws out of the window inside will the window come out? I do not really want to remove the window if I do not have to.
Do I need to get all of the wood that was stuck to the fiberglass shell or can I put the floor over it. I do have to do a couple of fiberglass repairs , when I was removing the wood floor I went through the fiberglass, I did not realize it was the bottom of the floor. Also the fiberglass on the nose area has some small holes and pin holes, I think some of the holes was where a board was across the front. It also has some pin holes.
Any info anyone has would be greatly appreciated. I am attaching some photos.
