Flooded Camper [Relocated thread]

Just wondering ow you ever made out with your trailer. Did the subfloors get mold? would you do it the same way again?

We have just experienced the same thing and trying to figure out if its worthwhile to salvage.

Moderator note: I have moved your question to it's own thread so you may get answers to your specific problem.

Whether or not salvage is possible will mostly depend on how long ago the trailer was flooded.
If it has only been a couple of days you would have to begin gutting the interior almost immediately including the floor and ceiling to allow the insulation and wood to dry out.
You would basically have to almost totally dismantle it.
This is a lot of work and would involve a great deal of time and is why the insurance company will pay you instead of fixing it.

If mold is already starting it is likely too late.

If you wanted to try gutting and have any more questions just ask.
