Question 22' Airstream

New to Airstreams, got a gig as a carpenter replacing floor, insulation and interior walls on a 22' Airstream, unsure of year/model. The walls are bolted through the floor, which needs to be removed/replaced. Probably covered here before, can anyone point me in the right direction?

You'll find that it is quite involved to replace the entire sub-floor; it usually involves taking off at least all the lower interior skin, and the belly pan. Most here do a "shell-off" when replacing the whole floor, something quite laborious but not particularly technically difficult from what I read. You asked for it.... Good luck and have fun! -tim

quick insulation question

Hi all. When re-installing the fiberglass endcaps, is it better to attach the insulation to the back of the cap or to the interior of the metal?

Interior of the metal, which will keep more heat or cold, as the case may be, out.

fiberglass

I just did this, I found it easier to put it on the backside of the endcap and push it up into place. Use gravity to your advantage.

it is a job to replace the whole floor. the alum. track that the studs go into is bolted to the floor all around the outside and across the floor at all the metal joices. you have to remove the under skin and the inside wall from the windows down. the bolts will be rusted and the frame might be. the only one that i changed the complete floor on, we ended up taking the body off the frame and building a new frame. also the alum. trim at the bottom on the front and back screws into the flooring. good luck
