Thank You all !!

Worked a few hours tonight to finish up so I can ready to install the plywood. Doesn't look too shabby if I say so myself

Cleaned some bolts on my wire wheel. Added more wood for support. Some foam insulation. I think I'm finally ready for plywood lol

Looks great! What a project to do after buying the camper!
I too would only use grade 5 zinc plated hardware, maybe even grade 8 stuff for the actual D-Rings/hold downs. Stay away from stainless in any sort of stress app, too soft.

Good luck with it and I hope your Wife and you enjoy it for years to come!

Not looking forward to the day I have to do something similar...

Man, I'm impressed. And now you will KNOW that your Harley, and more importantly, your wife, are safe in the TT on your future trips.

Thanks. Yeah it's a good piece of mind knowing the floor is in better shape than factory.

It was overwhelming in the beginning. Glad I had friends that helped in the process. Thanks

If you haven't installed the tie downs yet, if a regular hex head bolt head isn't flush looking with the tie downs, I'd suggest zinc plated flathead socket head cap screws. They are stronger than a g5 bolt, and would have a flat head like the original bolts you were planning to use. If regular hex head bolts work, then they are fine as well. The whole project Looks great! Keep it up and you'll really enjoy the fruits of your labor this year and for years to come.
