Looking for subfloor repair person in Toronto

Hello fellow Airstream owners!

After years of searching, I finally purchased an airstream. My baby is a 1984 31 foot Limited. I am thrilled!

Now the work starts. We removed everything (almost) and discovered water damage in the subfloor. A couple of spots in the front are rotten or well on the way to becoming rotten. We also discovered that a big portion of the back was replaced, but not properly. As well as a spot was replaced in the front passenger side.

First, we're going to find out where the water is coming in. I suspect the windows or the celling fans.

Then we need to replace the floor. Not confident we could do this ourselves, so we're looking for someone with airstream experience.

Anyone know someone in Toronto or surrounding area that can replace my subfloor?

I've attached a photo of the front end.

Hope you can help

Here's a thread about your subject some time ago that had a few good ideas.

There is also another good repair shop north west of Toronto, but of course I just can't remember his name. It will probably come to me, or another member...

You can always have Can Am perform the floor repairs, if you don't feel comfortable doing it.
