Ok, so DW and I adopted a new project.. But it's a BIG
one for a first time team. We are sure we can handle it, but will for sure need advice and help from our fellow streamers on the board.. This poor baby was slated to become a shed, then the fellow decided it was too complete for that, and put it up for sale.
1st question I want to ask is in referance to this "dent" in the roof. A ice covered limb broke from a tree and fell onto(and through) the roof over the living room area. I am sure removing 10 feet or so of exterior skin and most of the interior in that area is what it will take to get to the actual damage, then an assesment of rib damage etc will be conducted.
If needed, where would one find ribs for a trailer of this vintage? can one get just repair hoops that scab in, or will complete rib replacement be the only option?
As I know, pictures are the key to being able to help, so here are a few..
OK, so there's the first look.. I am building an album over at photobucket to document the process of the repairs etc. needed to get us camping. We have already ordered seals for all the windows and parts to get the steps back to working properly, and in a mad fit of cleaning overload this morning (litteraly inches of rodentia dooty in the bedroom, we found the rear window has leaked a "bit" and the entire rear floor is rotted out about 6" in from the wall.. so next task will be that repair) I was actually worried about the hydroscopic properties of the dooty, but the floor where that all was at is pretty good. Shag carpet must be a good dooty insulator.
