Anyone have a picture of the rear floor section?

I am trying to cut out the replacement floor section of the rear but the original floor piece has so much missing its not making a very good template. I am unsure what through holes are needed to cut. A picture or some measurements would be great. This is for a rear bath 75 overlander.

Can you post pictures of your project at this point?

You may be able to reproduce your missing floor in reverse with this technique.

Openings? Will you be reusing existing plumbing, tanks, etc?

dkrukosky,
You are going to have to use the existing shell and frame to make some type of pattern that you can then use to trace the cut lines onto the plywood you are going to use for the floor. There is a lot of variability with these trailers and I think that your trailer is the starting point that you will have to use to get a finished product. The piece of floor that you have in the linked picture will be of some help, so hold onto it until you have the new piece(s) cut to your satisfaction. Did you take any pictures as you disassembled your trailer?

Steve

How to cut out the rear floor nice and clean???

Just got through Steve's 18 pages! Whew- nice job!

I'm about to start this whole thing with my 76 Overlander. I can get some pics of the rear as soon as I finish pulling out the bathroom this weekend if it helps.

I've learning so much from everyone's input. BUT, one thing I dont see in any of the posts, is:

How do you cut out the floor under the shell? My skil saw can probably get within a few inches of the edge, but certainly not in between the shell and frame. Everyone's pictures of the removed floor always look so clean!

I see that my rear section of flooring has a seam, but it has the little splice connectors in it. Would it be best to pull the whole section out without cutting?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
Micky

Micky, if you look at my pic above, My cut line runs from about three or four inches fwd of the corner of the battery box on the lower left, across the floor to the opening for the hot water tank. hope this helps....Phil.

Ahh... so you utilize the openings and dont have to go "under" the shell? I'm guessing It will become more clear as soon as I get the rest of my bathroom out.

Thanks Phil!

yes this will be very helpful. I think between my pattern piece and your picture I can figure out the fixture holes.
thanks

Yes for the outside edge I am going to leave it large until I lower the shell onto it I will then trace it re lift and cut the curved outside edge. from the picture I am hoping to try and figure out the fixture holes.
