I got the vinyl all glued down and cut out where the wheel wells go. When the original flooring was cut flush with the wood it left a hole for sand and debris to fall in. When I took out the wheel wells I found pounds of sand, change, beer caps, and other stuff. I am leaving flaps of vinyl to keep this from happening again.
Looking good. You did your floor similar to how we did our Airstream. Its the only way you can replace the floor in an Airstream but I`m amazed that you managed this with this type framing. I would have thought the whole flimsy design (sorry Shasta) would have collapsed in a heap.

You have to know what the camper wants to do. When the paneling and skins are removed mine wants to lean left and fall forward. So I used 2x4's to brace it accordingly. And I built the Curbside wall framing with glue and screws before I lifted everything off the floor. I next will build the Streetside wall frame. I did leave the top skin on all around to keep things in shape. It was like a table. The top is straight and square. The skinny legs need to be kept aligned so the top doesn't come crashing down.
