You're right, that is my style to ignore, but I guess I'd maybe had a beer or two and was in a mood...

Thanx for all the advice...

Just as much my fault, I miss-read the picture.

Good advice from Hampstead.

JC wants to fix it there because they can do it at wholesale at their shop. If they have to pay a dealer or other RV shop they have to pay profit to them. While the factory does some pretty dumb things, the repair shop does good work (and they will acknowledge sometimes they know how bad a job the factory can do).

Blame game aside it looks like it might be an easy fix with Rot Doctor or some other penetrating epoxy. A patch could also be put in if the wood is really rotten and not just soft.

I doubt the factory would do an as new floor replacement anyway, which would involve extensive major work.

Angry Floor rot in '06 Safari

We had the same thing just happen to us in our 26 ft. Airstream offered to advise our local repair shop, after we had already had it repaired. There was a gap under the front trim and also there was was no sealant where the body sits on the frame. It costs us $1,600.00. We are not so thrilled that we paid more for an Airstream but it did not make it a superior product.
