Well done, FBP!

I'll be honest and say, your rebuild makes me cringe. I spent some years in the RV business and I don't miss it at all... rotten wood, s*** tanks and toilets are a few of my least favorite things!

Great job!

Did they ever make one of these that [I][B]didn't[B][I] leak? Mine is on the E350 chassis, and the "attic" over the cab has leaked over the years and rotted the wood. Going to have to re do it one of these days if I keep it, but don't have time right now. Dread even starting on it.

I redid a 16' canned ham a few years back for a friend, had to rebuild the entire rear end and re plumb it, what a job. Then they let somebody borrow it, they backed into a tree, tearing loose the corner I had just fixed. I wouldn't fix it again, it eventually rotted away. It was going to have to be torn down to the floor as it had rotted soft spots in it, and the walls were built on top of the floor, so it all would have had to go and start new, too much for me.

Love it. I would have jumped on it too if it came up for sale around here. I currently have two campers, sone small one and a 20 yr old 33 year old bumper pull that is on a lot on the coast. It just needed flooring, went with Pergo similar to yours. Now if I could just find an old Bambi to tow with my rod...
