frame under shell

frame being rolled under the shell. Little more work on the end cap. My hats off to the guys who have done this. Serious fumes and patients. Not looking forward to the rear one. Think I might try the aircraft grade remover

floor

After several attempts of trying to duplicate the front and aft sections of the floor I remembered I still had the trim laying around. Good thing it saved the day. Not sure is I could have even come close. Should be good to go now. Interesting how the aluminum that is the main support of the shell doesn't reach the floor. 1/2 inch on some of them….

Rolled the frame out from under the shell and put in the remaining screws then pulled them out and applied a coat of wood sealer. More coats tomorrow. Have to take care of the wheel pants next

insulation

Just ordered up my aluminum for the belly pan. went with .030 5052. $45/sheet 4x10. Still need to figure out how Im going to insulate the floor and need to find a large grey tank. Until then I will leave one cavity open. Found some 2" blue foam at Lowes. R10.. A bit pricy…then there is a guy selling some R-4 pink stuff fairly cheap. I think I saw HIHO using it. Anybody have any advice?

end caps

Did some more work on the end caps. After using copious amounts of paint remover I moved to the polish. F9….didnt do a great job.this is the front cap. I need to go at it with some steel wool or sand paper to get the deep corrosion out of the aluminum. The rear cap is coming along. I used steel wool and it works much better.

My aluminum for the belly pan has arrived. Trying to finish up the wheel wells before I flip the trailer and work the bottom size. Having issues fitting them. I had to fab most of the outer portions since the others were rusted off. I cut the floor inline with the main frame rail now Im thinking it should have hung over a half inch. No where to attach the outer lip of the fender that seems to want to rest on part of the main frame rail. I might rip a piece of wood and glue it in then screw the fender to it.

I personally think sub-floor insulation is a useless waste of time and effort that will only cause more harm than good. A good heater and a warm to the foot floor covering is my best advice for cozy feet in cold weather camping.

No insulation eh. Interesting….where will the varmints live? If its a waste of time its definitely a waste of money. Foam board insulation is not cheap. Couple of things. Im not anxious to screw a bunch of holes into the bottom of the floor…also Im thinking that being upside down and bouncing down the road the foam boards would eventually come loose. Maybe. Bat would make the most sense but definitely do not want mice and they will get in…no doubt. Some spray foam maybe. HOFARC does a lot of this

True. I insulated the underside of Abby with two layers of DOW TUFF-R polyiso foam board and the floor is cold on cold mornings. I wish I would have spent my time and money on other things.
Spray foam may be better. It sure is costly though.
