Hello! I have recently purchased a 2014 12th Dune Sport toy hauler and after one great weekend discovered the floor was completely soaking wet and squishy all down the left side of the trailer. I sought quotes to find leak and replace floor and got 2 with the third on the way for $7k to $10k. Since we bought the trailer for 13.k I am apt to figure out how to do the fix myself! The leak runs under the tanks, the bathroom and the refrigerator cabinet, meaning, the cabinets and walls need to be removed.

Anyone out there who has done this themselves and can prove a little guidance before I make more of a mess than I need to? I am not sure how to enter the photos yet to this site.

The walls & floor are probably made of 2x2`s -- In the factory, the walls are made on a table & one side is glued & stapled -- The other side is left open so when installed, it`s secured with screws & then the paneling in stapled to that side -- Find the side that was not glued & remove the paneling -- Unscrew the wall & remove it-- Don`t worry about the ceiling falling or sagging -- It won`t -- The floor may be OK after it dries -- It`s probably 5/8th OSB & 2x2`s -- Homedepot will have anything you need -- Remember, You gotta tear hell out of it before you can fix it -- Have fun -- Bill Willard

The walls are aluminum framing sitting on 3/4” OSB. Am I going to need to jack up the side walls to be able to slide the flooring in, I wonder. And, to find the source of the leaks, am I going to first need to remove the bottom panel from the outside trailer wall to see if the water leaked from one of the seams?

Well, it doesn’t look like the photos are posting from the link and I have tried it two ways...on the side there is a leak you can see the previous owners didn’t install the trim pieces correctly. We hadn’t yet resealed and replaced all of that before we discovered the mess. All the way around the trailer the trim pieces need to be replaced and entire trailer sealed. That would be step 1. I will be looking for other leaks outside of these obvious spots on the outside.

I was referring to inside walls -- Probably can`t remove paneling from outside walls -- Bill Willard

is it possible you could replace just the left half of the floor? which would allow you to remove one section of the floor at a time and slide the new (half) floor piece one under the wall. you might need some reinforcement underneath where the seams on the two halves meet.
