Yeah, Jason just asked me this earlier -- I suppose I could -- it's really no different than what Andy does in one of his threads. I can say there's no secret sauce or anything, just don't want to hear the gripes and negative comments usually associated with any fix that doesn't involve tearing out the entire bathroom to replace the floor -- I'm just not interested in a pissing match, I suppose

I would be interested in seeing what you did, I chose to tear out the bathroom, along with the entire interior . I am upgrading plumbing, and with the extensive amount of welding that is going to be required wanted as much access as possible.

Just because some one does something a different way doesn't mean it is right or wrong, as long as the end results are acceptable.

I can appreciate your point. Lots of opinions out there and the talent of expressing them tactfully is lost on a few folks. Can you please share the info with me as well? Thanks!

I'm getting ready to do the same job, and like you, I don't have the time right now to do a full floor job. I just want my frame back in place ! Any info you could provide would be great!!

HAVING REPAIRED / PATCHED SEVERAL REAR FLOORS / AS WELL AS BY THE DOORS...Airstream built in problems probably not knowing these last a long, long time. 1) Gotta keep water out. Caulk where the banana wrap is over the side skin, and caulk any trim in same area that hides the seam. Imagine how much water runs down the side of a Airstream in a heavy rain and the aged / failed caulk lets water in under the floor, wet insulation and wood = problem. 2) In the rear I'm going to try to modify or eliminate the storage area at the rear bumper or make is "non water catching" Such as bring the belly pan up at the rear of the shell and seal off that area from water intrusion. May replace the storage area floor with a good grade of metal or plastic mesh which would let the water run right to the ground below. 3) Tour the belly and caulk / patch all un wanted holes. There is inherent problems at the steps and axle areas where gaps are mandatory. Not sure what will be done there. I cant imagine the conditions in the basement of an Airstream when towing in hard rain. Some areas should probably be sealed off to allow water where it cant be kept out and add drain holes to let it out. Best to All....

Well I was taking the remains of the Old parts to the land fill, and found this righting on the black tank. Thought it was pretty cool. It was written at least 4 years before I was born.
