Denver, CO - Service on structural & mechanical

Hi all,

Saw an old post re: Denver companies that can service airstreams in one way or another. Again, it was a very old post.

Wondering if there are new experiences / recommendations for structural and mechanical service on a vintage Safari?

It's in great shape, but I want to get it modernized for 2011 standards below the floor and start a remodel with a new floor.

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Also, any of you who have put in a new floor, I'm curious to see what material you are using, liking, not liking.

Thanks,

Ty

Timeless

I've heard wholly mixed reviews about Timeless. Just gonna have to see for myself. Folks seem to like the Fort Collins guy for metal work which is the starting block for all this. I intend on meeting him too.

Any other leads are appreciated. Thanks for the current info.

You can always DIY like we did...

We used 3/4" marine ply which I would recommend regardless of whether you do it or have it done professionally ~

I would concur with the recommendations of either of the two mentioned - two totally different "shops" but both good, I know them well.
