Skin is glued to wood and styrofoam.  It is a pain in the butt to peel back.

As you can see, the rot went over pretty far.

Here you can see where the floor extends out beneath the frame work.  This is pretty typical of most trailers.  It sucks though if there is rot.  I think I caught this in time.  It should be fine.  I routed out the wet part, and will seal it after it drys for a few days.

September 16, 2009  The area for the repair has been opened and dried out for a few days.  Now the repair can start.

Splicing the rear beam together.  Notice how before there was a 1x2 then 2 inches of styrofoam, then a 1x6.  For strength purposes, I've decided to do the repair with a 1x 10.  Notice the 3 screws that go down through the top, besides the straps.

Both the straps are counter-sunk, done with a router, so that hopefully there won't be any bulges under the skin when it is put back on.

The big picture.  I will glue "Pip" insulation on the repair, and will then glue the skin to the insulation.
