JaySam Posted January 21, 2020 Share Posted January 21, 2020 Edited 4/3 to add some pics of the floor damage and initial repair I did so all of the project is in one thread. Found a rotten floor under the propane tank and the fresh water tank in the 1985 Sunrader I just purchased in December. I cut out all the rotten wood, replaced with 3/4" PT ply and then built up from there. I also added 1" square tube wings underneath welded to the frame to add support to the sides in the back. From there I rebuilt the floor with new plywood, glued and screwed the layers together and finished with some primer on top and the edges. And so began the process of the rebuild of the sunrader. I recently repaired the floor in my 85 Sunrader, but the plywood pieces I added do not line up flush and the floor is not flat. Does anyone have a recommendation on how to level and flatten the floor? So far my ideas are to glue and screw down more wood, build up the low spots and then plane it back down to flush and flat, but that seems like a lot of work. My other idea is to use a epoxy fairing compound to build up the low spots and then sand flat and level but am concerned about the vibration and movement from driving down the road. I'm trying to flatten this surface as opposed to adding another layer of ply to even it out because head room is a scarce commodity! I want to just lay peel and stick tile on top of this surface. Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Jay Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
