I have a 1983 excella 34 ft with soft floors in rear bedroom on sides and a small 4x6 rot hole by the bathroom and bedroom inside side wall that looks like it was caused by the water heater, I have replaced the water heater,how hard is to replace the floor pieces. The center of the floor is solid. Thanks for any help, is there anybooks out there about the floors Semper Fi, roadstr32 30yrs

Welcome aboard, Roadster. Sounds like you have bitten off quite a chunk right off the bat. Anyway, first, search the forums for repair work as you need, and most of the time, you will find pictures that will show step at a time work previously done by someone else. Be advised, the floor is tongue/grove for good support, and depending on your year, may actually be pressed wood flooring. No matter the case, you have quite a job in front of you. Hope you still love the thought of an Airstream two months from now.

Have no intention of arriving at the grave safely, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand,throttle in the other, totally worn out and screaming
