When laying the floor down, I didn’t lay it all the way to the wall’s, this enabled me to use trempro around the full perimeter of the flooring
and interior walls. It wasn’t the money, it's about water control, I’m convinced that all rv’s leak, Prevost, etc, and also mine. I have gone through 22 tubes of trempro635 since the start of this project, and still not finished.

Very good idea! I am planning the same, everything outside new or old will leak. There are plenty of threads on here with new 2010-11 trailers that leak.

Your trailer is looking great!

Thanks very much Doug, so far the only thing that I'm not happy about is the new axle. I went with a straight 5500lb axle which raised the trailer about 3”, the reason was because of dropped tanks. Plan to go back to a 3500” drop axle, the leaf springs on the trailer is rated 3500#...........

You chose to not lay the flooring wall to wall and then place the fixtures. Others I have seen lay the complete floor, then add the dinet and other furniture. I am at that point. What were you pros and cons of not laying a complete floor?

Great looking trailer byt he way.

That's interesting about the axle, I was going to do a straight axle to gain a little height and the shop talked me out of it saying the old drop axle was built better. They installed new brakes,back plates, bearings and re-arched the springs which gained about an inch and half in height. It cost about the same as a new axle.

Toaste - I don't mean to cause any trouble, just some thoughts.....

I'm not sure how much you will gain by sealing the inside - rot/water happens from outside the trailer - especially from the edges of the plywood that tend to suck up water - I think it is more important to soak the edges of the plywood and about 6 inches in from the edge with epoxy.............

Just some friendly thoughts.

Beautiful job - really enjoying watching this thread........

Thanks Ken, I did seal both top and bottom of the plywood and also sealed the edges, this is just added protection, or control. I do know that when I do get a leak that it will not go under the finished floor. I have had friends that have had to rip up there floor to trace a leak, its my early leak protection.............

Going with a electric heater made by KING, its model KT1210-B, 120v, 1000w, 8.3amp, its a narrow profile heater, 3 1/2" tall and specifically designed for floor saving and wall space.

Toastie... I'll be better able to picture it after it's up I suppose... what are you using to line the shower with? Was this a standard door from Home Depot? Will there be a inner and outer "finish" which abuts the studs around the frame?
