The axle is supposed to have a bend to it, upward when mounted correctly on the trailer.
So how does that work when people do an axle flip?
Does that cause a problem?
Will post a picture later but this weekend I got the axle all wrapped upped and reinstalled.(No axle flip)
Installed new bearings, races, grease and axle U-bolts.
Will get new tires when this gets more complete.
I feel this thing is going to start finally moving along.

The axel will help it move!
Got a little done today.
Ended up removing the front floor that I put and replaced it with something different since my plans for the front box area has changed again. I also now have the correct thickness replacement flooring.
The interior is completely cleaned out, had to remove the rollers for the bump out.
I hope this weekend to finish the floor so I can start working on the walls. I already have new linoleum to put down also.
Added some scabbing(I think this is the right term) underneath to tie the old floor and the new floor together. Then filled in the seem with construction adhesive.
While working I did find the floor by the fridge vents is pretty soft about 6" to the edge. I think I am going to leave it maybe just throw a thin piece of plywood down and call it a day. I really want to put down the new linoleum and get the front and back walls up.
I need to try and get one massive tarp that I can put over this. I am using 3 different tarps to keep it dry.
Replaced the last rotted section (behind the fridge).
Was hoping to get more done but the weather was not cooperating.
At least you are still keeping at it. Keep posting all that you are doing. I have had to put my rebuilding on hold as well but hope to get back into it soon.
Indeed! I have the exact same camera and really appreciate all the info you are sharing, as I may be attempting much the same repairs (I have the same rotted floor area as you just fixed).
Got some work done this weekend still seems like its going slow though.
-New linoleum floor in and glued.
-Reinstalled the brackets and rollers for the bump out.
-Installed a new rear wall and remounted the rear plastic portions of the popup.
-Lastly reran the rear parking/directional light wires to run directly into the plastic rather then through the floor then into the rear wall.
