1990 Casita Floor Replacement Question

I've been searching for a while both here on the forums and via Google and thus far haven't been able to find the small bit of information I need, hopefully I didn't overlook something obvious.

As a quick backstory, I'm part way into a complete overhaul of a 1990 16' Casita - there was extensive water damage, so basically a complete gut. I'm ready to put the sub-floor in but have not been able to determine exactly how the floor should be where it meets the opening for the door. When I removed the old floor it ran just along the slight lip at the opening for the door, then there was a strip of angled metal that attached to the horizontal plane of the floor on the inside, and the shell just on the outer side of the lip (basically running vertically)... but this section of floor had clearly been replaced at some point so I'm not sure if this is how the original design was?

Below is a close-up of specific section I'm talking about - if anyone has input or could share a picture of how their finished Casita looks I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

Jonathan

Your best bet is to talk to Larry Gamble at LHC.

Thanks Walt! After inspecting the metal strip again I realized it had a rounded bottom which matched the contour of the shell, so I can only assume it's original - as such I decided to forge ahead using my best guess on how to make things fit, hopefully I'm right!
