Mismatch of floor and outrigger width
I have a '59 18ft CA No Name - the same trailer as A-Merry-Can. I'm new to the Forums, trailering, Airstreams, etc., but wisely or not, I decided to remove the shell, POR the frame, and replace the floor myself.
I measured the width of the old floor at 88". That's within range of the 88.5" that A-Merry-Can measured so I figured that I was OK.
The width between the outside tips of the outriggers is roughly 87" - which means that the floor extends a half inch past the ends of the outriggers on both sides of the trailer. That still didn't seem unreasonable until I put on the first banana wrap. The problem is that I have a half inch gap between the outrigger and the banana wrap just below the floor. I know of no way to avoid it since the floor extends a half inch beyond the outrigger. The gap then diminishes as the banana wrap curls underneath the trailer. I could fill the gap with a piece of aluminum, but, needless to say, I don't remember any gap when I took the belly pan off.
I'm 99+% sure that the old floor was 88" wide. I measured both the old front and rear floor panels, and they both seemed to be exactly 88 inches. The width of the shell also seems to be roughly 88 inches wide. So the floor seems right, but I have this gap. I'm stumped.
Where did I mess up?
