Removal of floor

In our '89 Excella 34' we decided to change our queen to twins. Once the bed was removed, then the carpet -- surprise. There has been a leak from who knows where and most of the floor was rotted. We are attempting to remove the floor -- Does anyone have any ideas on how to best remove the wood flooring from under the walls? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Can of Worms, go fishing!

There are lots in the same boat. Me too.

A thorough analysis is called for. Not to be too melodramatic but on mine a hole in the floor led to the discovery that my frame was ruined.

I hope that all you need is a patch but there are excellent threads on floor patches and replacement.

Under search try 'floor repair' and follow the threads.

I still enjoy the Airstream very much.

For the floor replacements we have, we pulled everything out to get at the bad wood. It's allot of work but there is no question in the end you got it all...

We are replacing floors & floor sections on a regular basis. You will need to remove the inner lower wall sections & the bellypan in the effected area in order to gain access to the bolts holding the lower "C" channel in the wall to the chassis. We have discussed this topic several times on the Vintage Airstream Podcast theVAP - The Vintage Airstream Podcast - Home . Good luck with your repairs,
Colin
