Is that plywood in the third picture (under the window) wet? Does that window have a leak?

You didn't mention having to repair a leak in the first post, so I'm curious.

I know it looks like its rotted, but its just a stain. I've owned it for about a year now and we've had torrential rain and its stone-dry and very solid. The prior owner may have left the windows open, similar stain by Master bed. I looked at about 10 TT before buying this one, its solid but has some interior work needed.

A friend of mine bought an old used TT, with an ugly interior. One of the things he did ispurchased vinyl peel and stick linoleum. The pieces were similar in size to floating floor, and looks the part. It is a very nice looking floor and did not cost him a fortune.

Look below the window, that is a wheel well, and it is all centered on it. I bet if it has leaked it is from rain while driving.

Unrelated question - also need an accordian style room divider, track and everything, was removed from TT by prior owner. I thought of making a curtain too, but try this first. I searched on RV room divider on camping world, ebay, amazon, etc.... what are they called and anyone seen one for sale?

I'm in the Houston area, its a 07 trailer, and we had a hurricane come through between then and now. 100mph winds will have water come through just about most windows and doors, the ones in my house leaked so I don't doubt that this got wet too. Its super solid, and dry. No moisture at all under the sheet material.

Well, I might be OK with the LVP, but after the mfg warnings and cost per SF is so much more, taking it back and looking the 12" tiles which everyone says seem to be impervious and low maintenance which is what we're looking for in a camper with kids and all.

I just finished some cabinet work under the countertop the prior owner installed. He had roughed in with unfinished pine under it and looked a bit rough. I took a bunch of wood scrap from the shop and its looking pretty good now, although I'm going to put a front on the trash can slider and make a oak trimmed shelf above the heater that is much more finished looking. We use this for a large storage container we put food in since we're in/out of it for weekend trips and don't store food on board, its nice to just load it up and slide it in.

More on the floor after I get new flooring.

My orbital sander broke (pad rubber came apart) so I will have to sand and finish this later. Didn't want to wait for the hard to find part to be delivered. Some of the bits were already finished from being parts left over from other projects, that's why the finish is so crazy looking. Everything is oak so it should be close enough. The solid parts are quarter sawn oak, a bit overkill but it was in the bin already!

Oh and disclaimer - the edge of the countertop is not my work! It has a rookie type edge fit, big nail holes, horrible drippy gloss poly on it - from original owner. I will resand it and try to get joints tighter maybe when I finish the bottom part. Hasn't been priority. FYI, the countertop is made from ceramic floor tiles on plywood... a bit heavy but works and we do short hauls flat land don't worry about it.

I put in the newer floating vinyl flooring. It's much thicker than the older vinyl and so much easier to work with. To do it right you'll need to pull out some of the fixtures to put it underneath (i.e. benches & table) so it doesn't move a whole lot once installed. I used butcher paper to create a pattern and then just rolled it out and did the final fitting in the trailer. I went over the old flooring and spread a leveling material to make sure every thing was smooth. Any imperfection (no matter how slight) in what you lay it on will show through. In my case that was the pattern in the old vinyl. I found that about the cheapest place to buy the vinyl in our area (Seattle) is at Lowe's.
