1972 27' Full Floor Replacement
My Name is Dylan, Im a 21 Year Old Engineering Student from Vermont and Last Fall I bought a 1972 27' Overlander Airstream Trailer.
It was infested with carpenter ants, mice, and contained about 50 nests of various flying insects. The floor was pretty soft in the back, and it smelled really bad the carpet was gross, couches, beds, curtains all had to go.
I started pulling everything Out right away and eventually took everything out.
It spent last winter totally gutted parked on my parents land. The floor was pretty damaged in the bathroom and under the fridge, so i think i am going to have to do a whole floor replacement. The rear floor panel has been removed, and it revealed a somewhat rusty frame. I think this means i should go all the way with a shell off resto so i can check out the whole frame and get easy access to the shocks, and brakes. The insulation under the floor has tunnels from rodents, and deflated fiberglass. I don't think i wanna put fiberglass matting back in anywhere.
Since it gets pretty cold in VT and it will spend most it's time up here, i want it as insulated as possible. I'm thinking closed cell foam in the floor with expanding foam to seal all the gaps. Then Spray on Foam for the walls and ceiling. Anyone have experience with spray foam on an airstream?
Check out the Pics! (sorry i don't have any halfway pics just pre and post gutting)
In a few weeks i quit my job and am all about getting as much work done as possible before i leave town for some hiking in July, this forum looks like it has an huge amount of information to help me and I am excited to be a part of it!
