After removing the dark laminate, we notice a bit of sag in front of the fridge. So we decided to strip the older plywood subfloor and see what condition the metal floor was in. Other than some grime and screw holes, the floor was in good condition! The prior owners had ground down all the rivets to make the subfloor flat. It may have succeeded in making the floor flat but it was also contributing to it's current condition quite spongy.
On Friday, Steve at Sunset RV called and let us know the hitch and stabilizer bars were ready. A few days prior we began prepping the Pilot with trailer brake and trailer light accoutrements. Now it was time to pick up the Argosy! The camper was briefly the object of someone else's affection. Prior owners were going for a full interior renovation, then decided to purchase new. To others, it must have looked like a hot mess. But to us it was in the perfect state; broken in and torn apart.
Ripping out the dark floor, cleaning, and assessing any repairs that may be required.
