Before We Get Started  we'll answer your Questions on the Integrity of the Trailer:
Axle OK?
Yes
Frame OK?
Yes
Sub Floor OK?
No
Under the Rubber Mat the Sub Floor was in Tact with no Water Damage but felt Weak.
We will add another Layer of Sub Floor to make it Sturdy.
Additional Sub Floor Shown.

So we could keep the Sub Floor Flush into the Bathroom,
Walls and Cabinets were taken down for Access.

Also shown is the Heater Removed with a Patch in it's
place on the Interior and Exterior.
Ready for Paint & Flooring!
The main body of the Trailer had been painted White but as we scrubbed it down with TSP a Beige was exposed
that matched the Upper Part of the Bathroom.
We think we are bringing it back to the original paint configuration.
