I am the proud owner of a 2005 Scamp
16 (layout 6), that I purchased this summer. On our most recent road trip one of our cabinets over the rear dinette pulled loose and fell off. The two wood nailing strips that the cabinet was attached to are still intact, and the front and side piece seem to be undamaged. However, the bottom of the cabinet is unusable, as the fiberboard (or whatever it is made from) has pulled apart and delaminated. I was thinking of just replacing the bottom of the cabinet with half inch plywood, attaching the front and side piece and then remounting. However, I have a couple of questions:
1. Since the cabinet box is all that same fiberboard, would it be better to redo everything...the base, the side piece and the front...in paint
or stain grade plywood?
2. Originally the cabinet box was attached to the strips with staples. Has anyone had experience reattaching the cabinet to the nailers in another way...screws or finishing nails? I want to be sure that the cabinet stays put once the job is finished.
Any advice would be appreciated!
