MultiMaster for sure.
This is the only tool I have found that wll remove nasty caulk like butter.
No kidding.

I find more uses for mine all the time.
Home Depot keeps lowering the price on the Bosch cordless version and I would think that of all the knock-offs of this tool the Bosch may be decent?
It is down to $150.00 too.

I find most of my tools at Pawn Shops,I have for years and always get an amazing deal.

Just a thought.

Ed

Although we are not needing a floor rehab project at present, this is a great thread to tuck away for future reference - thanx all. And thank you, Raya, for the interesting notes on 'overdrill/fill' procedure to seal the core of the plywood flooring material ... as a landlubber, whodah thunkit? THIS could prove very handy later on. Regards, LdB

Raya, I had planned to coat the inner bore of the holes with resin, but hadn't thought about creating epoxy plugs at the various places where we'll be screwing into the plywood floor to mount things. I don't know if that's something I'll do . . . it seems very practical for the marine environment, but might be overkill for a little land-lubbing fiberglass trailer.

Was in Lowes yesterday and the Dremel ac electric version of the fein multimaster is $99 I tried it out in the store and it worked pretty good.....the bosch cordless version battery went dead pretty fast.

Thanks to all who have posted such good information (including caveats) ref. this topic of rotted flooring. We are new owners of a 2001 13' Scamp (Oct. 2009). Spent most of two days last weekend ripping out aft portion of rotted flooring under rear bunk. Of course, project time ended up being 10X what we initially thought because we had started out with the idea of attacking a totally different project in the morning. As of Sunday night, cutting out rotted portion is completed, new floor piece is cut and dry-fitted. We are thinking it is advantageous to read this thread and archived info before finishing up, we can incorporate some of the ideas presented on the forum if need be. The project we thought we would be finishing last weekend (raising rear bunk to allow underbed storage) is about 50% completed. We are also sailboat owners, so we know how it is with projects and their completion time.........

It's too bad this happened to a less than 10 year old trailer. Poor maintenance... Be sure to keep us all updated on your progress, and as you know we LOVE pictures
