Just bought my first trailer last fall
in pretty great shape.
By the time we went up to see it a month later it had leaked and grown mold.
(it was tarped but water probably came in around the handles and tail lights)
I washed it down with bleach, removed the fabric (from the bottom of the windows
down on either end) and sprayed everything with stuff designed to kill/inhibit mold growth. Then we caulked it, aired it out to dry over a few days and then covered it completely with a tarp for winter.
Checked it out this spring and it looks just like we left it. Don't smell any more mold but can't be totally sure. There are a few places in the floor that feel "spongy" under the linoleum that I suspect may be rotten. The two or three spots feel about 4' wide and run width-wise across the floor under the large table/bed. I'm a slightly handy gal, but this may be WAY outta my league. What are the layers of these floors made of? Do I have to pull out all the cabinets to replace a floor? What do I replace it with? How long does it take? What tools do I need? How much is it likely to cost? Is it a job I am better to hire someone to do, and what would be a reasonable cost?
Since I've taken off the fabric from the ends, it looks awful now. There is orange "stuff" all over the walls that is the foam backing from the fabric. The rest of the fabric is old and starting to come off anyway, so the whole thing probably needs doing. Do I need to remove that orange stuff, or can I just glue something right over it???? What kind of material should I use, how much should it cost and how do I put it up?
Still happy, but a little overwhelmed.
Thanks in advance for any help.
