    Hi all from claire and family,we've been in camper today like most days open up to air or sorting stuff to go away, opened front locker behind drivers door took out chairs and other bits and noticed floor was lumpy and soft futher inspection pulled back flooring its rotten.
    We know it's not going to be easy to fix but advice on how and construction if anyone has had to do anything like this . The camper is a eura mobil 770 eb had it for three years .partner is a builder but not fixed anything like this before . As you can imagine we're gutted .

    take it to a repairers to get a quote it may not be as bad as you think.
    had a repair done by johns cross on our old burstner just over £1300 for all the rear floor caused by a leak in the shower.

    Now is the time to start. It's no different to repairing a house or even closer a wooden shed.

    Slow and careful is the way..... make sure you get all the rotten stuff out and find out how and why it became rotten.

    Hi, I have also have a rotten floor problem, does any one some suggestions of professionals in the north of England who would look at what I am sure is a big job? I need to get some idea of the cost of rectification (assuming it is a viable option) as it seems to be rotten more or less everywhere!

    We had a damp problem sorted out by Teesside Caravans but they are probably too far north for you.

    There are a few companies in your area listed on the MCEA web site. I know nothing about any of them personally but being listed there they should be up to standard.

    Thanks, that's useful information. I'm prepared to travel if that's what is needed, however I'll go through the MCEA website and see if I can find someone local. If anyone else has any ideas on who to try then that would be great. Thanks again.
