    I have a 2000 Viking Saga and have noticed some rot on the floor along one wall. Its about 2' long and 3" wide running from one wheel well toward the front. You can notice a slight dip in the flooring inside the camper. Is there an easy way to replace the rotting wood without removing the camper walls? All I can figure out is I would have to remove the interior cabinets and water tank, pull up the linoleum and remove the flooring from the inside. Can it be done from the bottom?

    I was wondering how you made out? I'm facing a similar situation with mine.

    Chris, take a look at the restoration thread for my '96 Viking Legend. The layout will most likely be a little different than yours but the processes, methods and supplies should be the same.

    I did a total floor replacement but putting in a patch between crossmembers is certainly doable as well. At any rate, I'm sure you'll find it of some assistance.

    Chris,

    Keep us posted on how this goes with some updates and pictures if you can. I too am wondering if I can replace the floor without having to remove the walls, etc...

    Thanks,
    Tim
