I picked up a pallet full of frame parts on Thursday as promised.
A shout out to Always Welding!
After haircolor this morning I will start removing and replacing frame pieces.
Now it feels like I'm getting some where.
I found a retired sheet metal guy to do my wheel wells and he may fab a fridge scoop too.

I am guessing silver to match the airstream? Cool at least you have the weather for working on yours I have renamed our to titanic as after the downpours I run out dry up water and look for the leaks! Got to find the other 2 then maybe no more puddles.

Silver looks awesome on an Airstream but I try to keep my silvers at bay. Its all smoke and mirrors.
I got the front 2 outriggers welded in yesterday before the rain ended my fun.
While I did the welding my friend Sue came by again and she did some cabinetry refinishing.
A great day all in all.
Rain this morning. :-(

It is expensive and you don't need it! Just my opinion plus if it is salt cured then bad juju!

I read over the MSDS info on regular plywood and the marine grade I'm looking at.
Neither appear any more or less toxic than the other.
Nothing about salt cure.
For the extra hundred bucks or so I will go with the marine grade. If I dont there will come a time I will regret it I am sure.

Dingo Girl,
Matt's reference to salt cured wood Might not be speaking to the toxic affect to health, but to the metal it touches. I had a experience where I used treated wood (salt cured) for the facia board on my garage. Instead of painting the facia I wrapped/covered with metal, within six months I had corrosion blisters eating through that metal trim. After talking to professional installers they all said not to use the salt cured treated wood due to the salt corroding the metal.
Maybe others will weigh in on this?

I called Roseburg and talked to an engineer. He said there is no chemical or salt curing of the wood they use in the marine grade. It remains in its natural state.

The main difference with mgp is the glue as for voids or wood quality there is no difference and the price which can be a diff of 30 bucks a sheet if you live by the ocean!

From apaplywood.org:

In order to qualify for a particular end use, panels must be submitted for testing and meet performance criteria in three critical areas: structural performance, physical properties and bond performance.
Panels are typically classified in one of two bond classifications:
■ "Exterior" panels have bonds capable of withstanding repeated wetting and redrying or long-term exposure to weather or other conditions of similar severity.
■ "Exposure 1" panels are suitable for uses not involving long-term exposure to weather. Panels classified as Exposure 1 are intended to resist the effects of moisture due to construction delays, or other conditions of similar severity. Exposure 1 panels may also be used when exposure to the outdoors is on the under-side only, such as at roof overhangs, although appearance characteristics of the panel grade should also be considered. Exposure 1 panels are made with the same exterior adhesives used in Exterior panels. However, because other panel compositional factors may affect bond per- formance, only Exterior panels should be used for long-term exposure to the weather.

The Roseburg "marine" plywood is Exposure 1 rated by APA and is $59.99. You will likely have to special order it.

The ACX sold at the same fine home center is Exterior rated by APA (better than Exposure 1) and is $34.99.

In my opinion, the real goal is to keep your Airstream plywood floor dry. Occasional moisture will not cause it to rot away if it dries out quickly, but chronic moisture will.

Use "Exterior" rated plywood with an A face up toward the inside of your trailer and keep it dry.

www.apaplywood.org is the industry source for information. Free sign-up is required to download information which is abundant.

Well said and I do agree exterior grade plywood works better and is much cheaper!
