1999 Jayco Eagle 285BHS Rebuild

This will be my thread for documenting the rebuild on my fifth wheel.

Quick summary, I bought this for $800 and it had suffered significant water damage to the front and rear walls and some roofing. We suspect that the front and rear caps were installed over the previous rubber roof incorrectly.

The previous owner started the repair (notice below the condition in which I received it). The camper came with a new roof, glue, 12 sheets of Luan, plywood, and all siding/moldings labeled for (hopefully) easier re-installation.


I'll have to upload pics later when I'm on my laptop.

Latest progress, found out that the back corner was really bad and even required some floor replacement under the bunks. its getting there but this whole day was very windy and scattered showers so i didn't get as far as i wanted.







And this is why I'm glad i own my house and live alone haha

Best of luck. At least you have a helper there. Keep us posted with the rebuild progress.

Welcome to JOF

Look forward to following you FW rebuild and viewing your pics. No two rebuilds are alike, so there is always something interesting to learn or see.

Bob

I have started re-framing the rear wall/corner. Here is the rear corner post where i made it out of one piece of treated 2x8 instead of the multiple pieces used before. its much sturdier than even the opposite corner which is still intact.



Here is the bathroom ceiling, luckily it all looks good.



Started getting the back frame back on. Wiring will be very fun i'm sure.
