Thanks for the link. Shari has done a marvellous job!
What I want to replace on my '74 Sov is the very back piece. The "trunk" area leaks like a sieve, and as a result, the thin strip of ply that is left at the very very rear has been soaked for a long time (before I got the trailer) and as a result, it's dissolving. The opening in the floor is very large at the back to allow for the two guillotines and connections to the rear sink and tub, I wonder what ever made the engineer that designed that section think that it would ever last!
In any event, unless I'm mistaken, that section of wood is what is holding the back of the shell to the back of the frame. It needs to be replaced. However, oddly enough, that is the only section of floor that is bad! I've been all around the floor (the carpet is loose, not fastened at all) and the whole thing is solid.
I'm thinking that if I completely remove the bathroom furniture, cabinets, and tub, I should be be able to get at that rear piece of ply and hopefully be able to wiggle a new one into place without tearing the entire trailer apart. Mrs. Aage won't allow the trailer to be out of commission for a whole summer, but I could get by taking the bathroom out of commission if the rest of the TT is still usable.
Does that sound completely crazy? If anyone ever tried anything like what I am describing, I would sure love to hear your comments...
