Doug did you seal the edges with anything going back?   Rod

I removed my floor and found that I had very little to repair. I found a lot of DNA that I got rid off LOL. I want my bus to be clean. Like Gumpy said I could not sleep at night knowing that junk was still there. Here are a few pictures. I used 3/4 plywood for the first layer then I insulated in the back over the engine with fire resistant blanket then up front with styrofoam. I then put a layer of 5/8 plywood on top of that. We didn't do a roof raise and have found that if you are very tall you may hit your head. My wife and I are vertically challenged so this is no problem for us.

I painted the bottom and the sides of the plywood with a marine exterior paint. I left the upper side bare wood. I fastened the plywood down with self tapping plated flush head screws. I turned out nice. Doug

I ended up removing and replacing my original floor.  I used 3/4" T&G plywood and I still have some bounce in spots.  I removed most of the seat rails, but it turns out they also provided support for the floor.  I should have welded some braces in while the floor was out.

I don't have any vents under my floor like an MCI.  Dina actually placed an aluminum pan filled with spray foam under the floor everywhere except over the luggage bays.  Over the luggage bays I put epoxy paint of the back side of the plywood.

I'm sure your mom will be happy to hear that!  Cheesy Cheesy (Sorry, couldn't resist....)
