Nyloboard / Nylosheet

I believe that I have read every post on this product. Has anybody used this product to replace a complete subfloor and do you have picturies of the install.
Some people have done bathrooms, or section repairs with nyloboard and it sounds like it has worked great.
I have an 1986 Excella 32 ft with OSB and I just found out that it has a very bad leak and the floor is damaged.
Thanks in advance.

Nylosheet as its know as these days has minimum order amounts and freight shipping charges from Covington, GA 30014. If you could get a group purchase going there'd still probably be a hit for Duties at the Canadian Border since British Columbia is probably the plywood Capitol of North America these days.

Other than all that it would probably set your '86 up until its iron content turned to dust...

I tried to use it for a job. I had a salesman willing to work with me and he got canned or left. His replacement was less than willing to work with me and the minimum requirement was astounding. I think it would be a great product, unfortunately their pricing, minimums and distribution system is going to kill it before it even has a chance.

Earlier this summer I tried to talk with the factory and got sent to distributor in NC. I leave about 90 miles away and was driving past Covington twice a month with an empty trailer. The quoted price got 10 sheets was over $250 per sheet. I could never get a firm price on one solid piece 22-ft long.

I'm trying to decide between marine grade plywood or advantech. (I've read all the posts on both). Still have couple of weeks before I have to pull the trigger and I recently stumbled onto a 1969 Caravel that is tempting to deplete my renovation fund.

Thanks for the feed back.
I assumed from the web site that the company was in full production and getting the sheets would just be a matter of pay and go.
Being in British Columbia we do get our share of rain. although we have just gone 60 plus days without rain and have had very warm temps.
Kind of ironic I just found a huge soft spot in the floor under the lino that I put in about 6 years ago.
Thanks Reese
