I have finally gutted my Ventura
trailer and now know the extent of the repairs needed.
There is severe water damage in 3 of the 4 corners to the point that parts of the framing are black and has disintegrated. see pic below
The framing above the small window is the same.
The floor in the rear on both sides is not attached to anything and sinks down about 3/4" with weight
There are numerous holes and weak spots in the fiberglass, especially in the front, that are also letting water in.
The roof is full of pinholes and some larger holes (and is covered in tar which does not stop the rain)
I assume that the damage in the corners is due to a leaking belly band. To fix this do I need to remove the top? (The plywood behind the framing in the belly band is black and rotten in places so needs to be replaced.)
Does anyone know how much the top without the windows
weighs, more or less?
The good news is that the trailer smells a lot better and I am on my way to my new really tiny home.
Any suggestions or hints would be most appreciated.
