Replace a section of subfloor?

Hello,

my wife and I just picked up a 1978 17' boler. Before we purchased a section of subfloor was identified as needing replacement due to what looks like dry rot. This section is at the front of the trailer under the dinnette table. I was just wondering if anyone has replaced subfloor in a boler or similar trailer and would be willing to offer any advice or tips on doing so? I've heard remove section width wise, replace with 5/8" marine ply install and use fiberglass or epoxy tape 2-4" for the side edge seams? Accurate? Or not so?

Thanks!

Kevin

The Boler folks will be along soon that have your answers. Floor replacement is not all that uncommon for many brands.

Thank you Dave! I'm new to this fgrv thing, I will say it's reassuring hearing that it's been done before!

Kevin, if you should read through some of the rebuilds that have posted here it would curl your toes for what some people have done. Your floor is a piece of cake in comparision. You may want to check the document center for some of them.
