Unfortunately this is not a product carried by big box stores. It is a bit too much of a specialty item for them to take it on - at least for the time being. I remember a while back that treated plywood was hard to find but I have noticed recently that Home Depot has started to carry it. So maybe there is hope that products like this will some day become more main stream in their availability.

Alternative to composite floor

I've been thinking alot about this problem knowing it is going to arise sometime. I'm thinking the best solution, and cheapest may be a piece of sheet metal formed like a widow drip cap. The verticle portion would be inside the wall. It would extend under the wall frame and then downward over the trailer frame. Any water will then be directed away fron the floor. If made of aluminum it woul more easilty follow the end curves. Attachment points would need special attention such as siliconing the screws or using grommets. Would be so much easier if Airstream engineered this problem out instead of playing ostritch. Then we could buy the ready made solution.

Nyloboard weight

I have a couple of photos of the delivery of Nyloboard to my house. I might have given these details in another thread, so pardon the repetition.

The total shipping weight was 161 lbs, as marked on the board. In 2008, the cost was steep, but probably even steeper now for the same shipment.

In 2008, I bought NYLOCHOICE FG 40LB 3/4x48x96 124.16

On my web site, I have more photos of the bath project -- not as pretty as many others I have seen here on the forums.

I got a reply from the Nyloboard folks today, they sent out my sample packet and gave me the name/address of a distributor up in Albany, NY as well.

Not that I even know yet if I'll have to re-floor mine any time soon, but the more research I do ahead of time, the easier it will be when the time comes.

I guess you could say that I sort of wrote the book about using Polyboard for my floor replacement since I seem to have written so much about my experiences with it on this forum. Check it out at the following thread:

Has anyone experience using an electric plane on nyloboard? I want to purchase 3/4 inch and plane the edge to5/8 so it will fit into my c chanel. I guess othe roption is 1/2 nyloboard and 1/8 luan bu tthat defeats the advantages of nyloboard.

Why not consider using a router?

I used a hand held grinder on my nyloboard and it worked. It went very smooth, quick and easy.

Every time I use my router disaster strikes. Must be genetics. Good idea though

Any smoking or burning from the grinding?

I better do the work when my wife is gone - she will assume I am in danger instant death from fumes (maybe I am). Did grinding wheel clog up? I'm going to trim 1/8 thickness off 3 sides of a 4x4 sheet
