I'm a masocist that likes a challenge. You should see my truck I bought for a dollar. The dollar didn't include floors. Now it's a toy for running through the woods so form followed function. The big rocks I play on with it has changed it's form often hahah.
Yeah, the more I look at it and think about it the more I think it may have to come off the frame to do it right. I only want to do this once. Put a few month in it now and enjoy it for the next 20 years before I have to do anything else.
I think I can do a lot to improve the longgevity and prevent moisture from getting to the wood but most of what I think will work means making sure that the full deck has some sort of protection so that when it leaks (it's going to develope leaks and many of them are in places where you can't see them till it's too late) that it has a much more difficult time getting to that wood deck.
