When to repair floor?
We have been looking for an Airstream for quite some time. I saw a 1997 Excella the other day and really liked the floorplan. The interior was in pretty good shape. The exterior had some dings, but was okay.
I looked under the bed from the exterior compartment and pulled up some of the carpet along the back wall. I can see and feel damp floor that extends about an inch along the whole back wall. I also found floor dampness and damage by pulling up the carpet near the left side of the door on the inside. The original carpet has been replaced on the interior of the AS, but the old is still under the bed.
My question is, When would this need to be repaired? The floor seems solid everywhere I walked and stamped my feet. I did not have my moisture meter with me so couldn't check other areas for damp. Could we live with this for a while and just try to find and repair the leaks? At what point does it become imperative to fix it? If there are other threads on this, please point me to them. I could not find anything.
Also, since this is at a dealer, is there a way to find the previous owner? I'd love to talk to them.
Thanks so much.
