Trillium 4500 Floor Replacement and Build

Hello, So I haven't posted in a while or given any updates but I have been slowly working along. My Trillium 4500 had almost no wood left inside of it. The floor in the front under the bunks as well as the plywood under the rear bed was completely rotted away.

last picture shows lip of fibreglass that sandwiches the floor all around the edges of the wall, had to cut all of that out but left this lip to act as a guide. when I put new floor in I managed to get the edges to slide back into this lip

second picture shows a mock up

I took some scrap plywood and made a new floor to test the fit and the order of assembly necessary to get the pieces to fit under the lip at the edge, under the furniture that I didnít remove and around any other obstacle

all my pictures seem to be uploading in reverse order so bear with me. I basically was so grossed out I just kept on heading deeper into the floor. I just hoped I would be able to work my way back out of it again.

This is largely an effort to get all these photos up, I've got questions and answers but I thought starting a new thread might be a good place to start

uncle, yes it was very scary. I often say I prefer "project" things that I can see the damage rather than risk ending up with something "flipped" that has a new coat of paint over rot. I feel like I have had to eat those words. I have found myself wishing for a blissful ignorance of all the problems I hunted down in this trailer!
