Bigfoot B19 interior disassembly question


I have a bit of a situation with my Bigfoot that I hope someone can help me with.... The exterior wall, on the entry side, under the sofa window has a couple problems. It appears that the foam has never been laminated to the fiberglass, and the wood strip for the belly band has been mounted too high, causing the screws to miss the wood strip all together. I would like to cut out the original wood strip and mount a new one, and relaminate the foam to the fiberglass. I need to remove the interior wood paneling on that wall, and I am wondering if anyone knows the best sequence to remove components to gain access to allow removal of the wall panels.

Thanks in advance for any feedback....

Hi Lee,

I don't have experience with older Bigfoot trailers like the B-19. Do you think this could be water damage? Craig Mayall knows a lot about Bigfoot Rvs and he is in Vernon, BC. Maybe his company could help you.

Thanks Bob,

With Craigs experience it looks like he would be able to answer all my questions.

Maybe ken h can help. He gutted his 17' Bigfoot in preparation of stretching it Stretching my 1988 17 ft Bigfoot.
