For the most part yes. Rear end separation, and rear in rot is common in a lot of the late 60s 70s models, double so with the rear bath. I replaced the frame rails with 1/4" c channel so it's much thicker, and stronger. If you go to the first page you can witness my folly and progress...

We got the allure sticky sided floating floor installed. It's looks really good, and it feels great being on the up swing of the rehab process. The next big project will be rebuilding the bulkhead walls, then followed by rebuilding the bath room. I'm hoping to have the bathroom done by Canopener in January.

Does anyone know the original stain color used for the wood work? I was planning on using birch ply wood. It is a 69 Ambassador.

The older they are the more time has to do it's job. There are trailers less than 10 yrs old having leaks at the back where the factory did not seal back there properly. They are getting better at some things but there are still problems with that seal at the back. The factory will call it a maintenance issue but the problem area is hidden under the rear bumper trim. You can't seal that area without removing that trim.
