Today I have decided to put in some allure flooring. I'm thinking the vinyl kind with the glue edge strips...I will learn more when I visit Home Depot.
Take a look at my subfloor. It was replaced by the PO. He said he glassed the tops and bottoms for the subfloor to the trailer body. Which I though was great as it sounded like a strong water tight solution. You can see can by the pictures that the floor is made up of a patchwork of cut marine grade plywood, bolted and then fiberglassed together. I as hoping the floor would be one or two continuous pieces. Is this just not possible? Anyway it is what it is. And that means it is really uneven in places. I think i need to raise it a 1/2 inch. A couple questions:
What material would you suggest to raise the subfloor?
Im thinking foam board insulation as it would give over bolt heads and other irregularities and I can bring it up to just where the body flange meets the floor to help bridge the irregular seam where body screws to subfloor.
Should I purchase the snap together planks or flexible glue down strips?
I was thinking that snap together planks might be more supportive given they are sitting on relatively soft foam core. (if foam is even recommended!)
See where the fiberglass body meets the floor...In places the flange bows up a lot. Should I screw it down everywhere that occurs?
I'm worried it might be overkill and put too much stress on the body if I try too pull it down to meet the floor every few inches. But this would help with the floor install. Oh and is that flange metal or fiberglass?
Any suggestions appreciated!!!
