If the bath was never worked on, you are more than likely going to be tearing it out. A good indication if the back is bad, is look for corrosion on the aluminum above the rear trunk. Remove the two covers at the back of the trailer inside the trunk and use a mirror to see how bad it is. Don't remove the pan if you don't have to, it may look simple but I'll tell you from experience it is not fun trying to put it back in. I recommend having a second swear jar on hand.

TKNELLE, it is engineered hardwood from Home Depot. It is Tiger Wood that someone special ordered. I looked at it several times but could not justify $900 in flooring for the trailer. Several visits later the Dept. Manager was there and he and I worked a screaming deal at just under $450. The install was straightforward, and it took much less material than I had purchased. Personally speaking, it is a bit too red for my tastes, but the price was right and I really only wanted to go with an engineered product instead of laminate. The trailer is open, and I have had a month of weather swings (as you know - East Bay cold nights and scorching days). So far, it is performing flawlessly with no gaps, separations or buckling at all.

My uncle is attempting to replace the twin mattresses in his 1972 26' Argosy trailer. The trailer is in Virgina and he resides in Maryland.

I'm hoping that I retrieve the mattress dimensions from someone here instead having my uncle drive to VA only to obtain the measurements?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

33"X75" is the exact opening size. The mattress you get needs to be a little smaller so it will fit inside that demention.

Hi everyone. Thanks so much for the input. Phrunes, your pics came just at the time when I could only see the floor as it is and nothing of what it will look like. Keep that up and you're liable to get downright discouraged!! Truth is, I've not had the nerve to ask my future son-in-law and his brother come over to work on The Lady since the great tear out. The original appliances (refer, stove, and sink are resting on pallets. Still have to function check them. Summer came and this is Oregon. We had such great weather, I just didn't press them. Watched then play the whole summer and kept thinking "Next year buddy. Next year.". But all of you are giving such spot on advice, I know when we crank up again, we'll make speedy progress. Thanks so much. I'll keep you updated!
