Shower Removal

I have a severe case of rear subfloor rot. I am trying to remove the sink/toilet/shower to get to the subfloor. I have a rear bed/rear bath 2008 25' Safari. The bed came out easy. Do I need to remove the overhead locker to get the shower out? It sounds like that involves removing interior ceiling skins to get the locker out. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have the same floorplan. I don't have any suggestions but want to pay attention to your methods & progress. Have you identified the cause of the water damage? Good luck!

Rear Floor Water Damage

Haven't done anything more yet. Waiting on response from insurance to see if they will cover it. I think the water came in from the back - top of bumper at the seam between the exterior skin and the floor - under the beltline. I think it has been going on for awhile, but has been hidden because it is under the bed and shower.

Shower Removal

Well that looks like a familiar problem. Had the same issue on my 2008 international 25 with rear corner bath....

I outsourced the repair to timeless travel trailers here in Denver. It was extensive labor - paid $6k for it to be fixed right.... there is a high risk of the shower cracking / breaking on removal. Fortunately timeless got mine in/out without damage. New shower is $2k from airstream.

Everything in the rear 1/3 of the trailer needs to come out to lay new sub-flooring. Everything.
