I'm talking about asking questions before tearing stuff out. There have been people pulling all the propane appliances out of their trailer without considering the consequences. People have pulled down cabinets, unaware that they are part of the structure and holding the roof up.
Goes on and on.

What happens to the hole when the cheese is gone?

Before you start tearing anything out, I'd use the trailer first. What you THINK you need or want to change may not be the case at all. We've seen far too many trailers that were demolished for a rehab, and were never finished. Don't miss out on camping because your trailer sits in pieces.

Thanks everyone for your advice. The trailer arrived today, delivered! It's extremely water-damaged on the floor, I think I need to gut it. I have MANY questions, and will start another thread about reno advice.

Stay tuned!

You need to treat it for mold right away to insure it does not start to grow.
