'69 Tradewind 25' shell

I just posted some pictures of my shell, and am in the beginning stages of repair work. I have ordered some Vulchem and par-bond. and also enough weatherstripping to replace it all.(thank you Denise at Inland RV, you were very patient and helpfull). Once I get the hull watertight I'll begin the floor repairs, new tires, design and layout of beds couches cabinets and other such. I will keep you all posted on my goings on. and I'm sure will ask many questions (Though I have found most of my answers so far just by a little searching and alot of reading). My big question is what to do about the floor? Do I remove shell and do the whole floor or just piece it in? I'll post some pix of the damage so I can get your thoughts.

If you search 'full monty' or 'shell off' you should find lots of good information. Considering you have it empty, it may be worth your while going this route for the floor.

If you haven't already done so, I think it would be a good idea for you to look through the threads in the link below. These are many of the Full Renovation/Restoration threads here on the Forums. Some of them are extremely long, but they're full of useful ideas and creative thinking.

Good luck!
