[QUOTE=Melanie;257500]We are going to look at a 1972 13' Boler
this weekend. I found out over the phone that it has a plywood floor. Any I've seen so far have been fiberglass.
Does anyone have any advice specific to the floor. I did read that it tends to rot from the inside out...any truth to that? The current owner says it's in good shape, no soft spots and he has painted it underneath.
Was this plywood treated in any special way at the factory?
Is it a big deal to put in a new floor, if it's not so good.
Is it true that the newer fiberglass floors actually have plywood between two fiberglass layers? Are there any with just fiberglass and no plywood?
Under water storage tank, under sink, at doorway, infront of bath door, under water heater. Look, look carefully, inspect.
40 years is a long time, and water works in mysterious ways. I recently replaced all plywood floors in a 1990 Casita
. Original plywood chips and glue were on their way to self distruction everywhere.
Three sheets of marine plywood should do the replacement. Not too expensive, if you can do the labor yourself. A lot of work, as everything has to come out to replace the floor.
Do you have friends with skills? Will they supervise? Good Luck.
