Man that is a mess - sure made that decision easy!

I am assuming when you purchased the trailer you could see the staining on the underside of the trailer so had a good idea you would need to do this before you started?

I would not assume it was the shower or toilet leaking although they may have - it looks to me from the water stains that its a good bet that a good deal of the water damage came from the bathroom window leaking. When mine started to leak I didn't notice it right away as the water stayed behind the arborite wall covering Scamp had put up on the shower walls. I did notice some water on the floor of the shower pan in a heavy rain once that I could not figure out where it came from. Wiped it up and forgot about it. Though perhaps it had come from a wet coat that had been hung in the shower. It wasn't until it happen again on the next big rain that I searched harder and noticed a faint stain forming behind the arbotite on the bathroom walls (scamp used red glue to stick it up) that I know for sure where it was coming from. There was a fair amount of water involved. If the trailer was parked with the tongue up or down that water could easily run into the kitchen area or the front bunk area.

Thanks for the info on the window, I'll keep an eye on it.

Finished all the walls and moved on to upgrading the storage space under the bed/table....And found more rot. So what the heck, fix it all.

I have it all fixed and plugged, just need to fiberglass it

Were you able to remove the enclosure in one piece? It looks too big to fit out the door. I plan on removing the toilet and enclosure in my 16' and hoped to keep it in good shape for resale if possible.

I saw a video of everything being put in through the door and kent at scamp said it could be done... But it's like a life size puzzle in there. I can't say I really tried hard to get it out before I cut it in 2 pieces, but I didn't care to save it.

Bottom line, I'd say its probably possible... If you have more patience and some help.
