The camper we just bought. 2002 Rockwood 2518G. I found last night the floor under the front storage box is rotted out. Looks like I'll be replacing most of the floor with some plywood. Don't want to just patch the area. I'll be pulling everything out this weekend. I already took the storage top cover off and fiberglass-ed the heck out of it for strength and no more leaking.
Would you use exterior plywood or advantech plywood.
I will be putting some kind of coating on the bottom so the rain , dirt and crap can't get to the plywood. Maybe fiberglass resin.
I wanted to take out the old frig. anyways and put some more storage there. (Microwave space)
Wife wants a new flooring. Not sure to go with the linoleum flooring like what's already there or put tile down. Actually just thought of some hard wood flooring. Hmm guess I'll ask the wife. lol
After washing the camper it looks a lot cleaner. BUT there is still black spots (mold?)
on the inside. Which I do not like seeing. Also there is a lot of burn spots (parking to close to the fire) ambers landed on the vinyl. He put silicone in the holes. And a lot of sun damaged spots. Time for a new top. So we looked up and found new tops. At this site Pricing | Bear Creek Canvas
We didn't think that was a bad price for the full vinyl top.
We will buy a top after x mas. Didn't look that hard to replace the top.
Looks like we have nice project to do this fall and next spring. We plan on keeping it 10 years +. Has everything the wife wanted.
I will post pics before, during and after. Then we will be some Happy Campers..
We'll be buying some LED lights also. White and color ones.
Here are some pics of the camper. One of the pics the wife washed one of the sides. You can see a difference in the pic. The black spots are in the back of the pic where my wife washed.
Going to look at the brakes and if I see any wear I'll be putting new pads or shoes on. I'm a neat (best to be ability) freak and huge maintenance free guy. I would rather do it right the first time and don't have to worry for a long time about it. And not in the middle of camping something breaks that I could of fixed it before.
