1977 excella 500 floor

Although I've always read that the floor was at least 5/8" thick my tape measure says otherwise. Just thought that it was interesting. 80% of the floor aside from rear end separation and held up. It is what it is but after 35 years of being exposed I'd say it did pretty well. Anyway I'm spending New Year's Day lifting the shell off with my girlfriend. Hope everyone has a safe and prosperous 2013. Prosperous because that's what is needed to own an AS!!

My Argosy also has 1/2" plywood. I had to go to a lumberyard to get some for repairs. None of the big boxes carry it. Happy New Year.

My '76 Overlander also has 1/2". I think the thicker flooring is on the older ones? Happy New Year!
