We've cheated off a lot of others papers so it's time to share a bit

This forum has been a great resource for us so we Just wanted to show some repairs and changes to our airstream that we've been through.

We have an '86 excella that has a dinette with a full bed in the back.

We refinished the table with road maps and cut a cabinet adjacent to the dinette to make an additional seat. Then we remade the side tables from cedar and matched the stain to the original as best we could and finished with water based spar varnish.

There was some subfloor rot so a patch was made and fiberglassed to the neighboring floor.

Curious... Where was your floor rot and about how large of an area was it?
I really like what you did with the table tops; they look great!

Floor rot was at the forward end of the dinette on the wall side. Water was coming in from the outside rail at the base of the wall, where the belly pans meet the shell. I just resealed it with tempro.

Awesome! Thanks for the input. I may need to apply the same technique on mine.

Very nice, good change up. I did something similar to ours this year, except we don't have a eating area like yours. Our trailer is a 84 Excella. I used walnut for a new counter top (stove and sink area). I used oil on it. The other changes side table near door I used a poly coat. Our table is a fold out (expands double length).

I wish I would have taken better pics of the floor repair, it was kinda of an afterthought. Essentially I just cut a piece of 3/4 plywood to span to the middle of the floor joists and all the way to the middle of the frame rail. Then I traced it on the floor, cut out the overlapping portion of the floor and dropped it in. I had to rabbet the wall side a 16th or so about an inch from the wall to get it to fit. Then put the original screws back in and laid glass cloth down and epoxyed the joint.
