Rotten floor

I know that I am very new at this, but has any body tried that watery epoxy that came out a couple of years ago? It is the consistancy of water and soaks into the wood like water then hardens to a flexable epoxy. Its advertisement targets rotten floors in houses. It worked great on my front table disapearing hinge repair. Just asking

Floor is only part of my problem

All the answers to floor replacement are here, sometimes hidden in links to individual web sites, and it seems like list members are all willing to offer help.
Look out listers....here I come.
I am going to pick up my new ?? 63 Bambi tomorrow. When I mentioned this to my neighboring Rancher I was told of a few "other" Airstreams....right here.
Off I went and sure enough found a nice looking 280 motorhome which has not been moved in 10 plus years. Absolutely beautiful but I know what that disuse will mean on the road back. Next I found the other two at the same storage yard....truck wrecking yard. A 65 24' Land Yacht and a 60's 22' Flying Cloud. Almost perfect bodies with completely trashed interiors...talk about rotted floors! The Land Yacht actually has a 2 inch tree growing thru it...many vines too....probably snakes. Pictures to follow.

I already have three Harley's, a VW and an old Airplane in the toy restoration line.
Now....how much time do I have? How much of a project do I want?

Dear Beginner:
I did use that epoxy. It all depends how bad the floor is. Mine was really bad shape and I had to cut out the rotten parts. I soaked the area around the cut out to make sure that area will be in good shape whe I do add new piece to it.
Cheers
