In addition to your perimeter wood riser I would add rigid foam board to support/insulate the entire floor base.
Easy, cheap, light and adds R value.
Many threads about doing this, here is one:
Thanks for the great idea. Any spesific product you can suggest? I know I have seen it in the store before and am sure I can figure it out easy enough too.
Awesome! That's my old camper. Unloaded it about 5 years ago now.
Glad you are going to breath some new life into her. I had many great adventures in that thing!
HAHA, YES! I am glad to have it. Any suggestions or info I should look out for. Thanks for passing it on. Jose and Jorge that I bought it from were really cool too.
Nice job, looking forward to how you finish it out. One item I would correct is the E-bolt you used, see picture below. The eye will open up as it is just bent in shape. I would use a solid ring or weld the ring to keep it from opening. I could not find a solid ring when I did my first install on my old 2002 Hawk, use the style you used and they started to open. I welded mine and they are fine. The new style made from angle are better if you want to go to the work to change them.
Thanks for the feedback. I had the solid ebolts in hand before i bought these. I went with the bent ones because the turnbuckles are rated to far below the solid ebolts. And since it is a whole system I figured it is only as strong as the weakest link so the solid was overkill. I don't know, maybe Ill regret it. I plan to keep and eye on them and if I see any bending ill be sure to replace them with the solid ones. I am also hoping that the will bend before any catastrophic failures like ripping out of the wood....
