JohnB is on a distinguished road

WOW... Great progress and great pics of the construction. Thanks! This may come in handy some day.

Also amazing is the roof truss. I thought they trimmed a 2 x 4 but guess not. And this T299SR is a walk on roof. That I’m sure helped hold the back end together during the crash. Don't know if the normal non walk on roof would of held up as well.

H'mm, well I think you have a new photographer. Counting slide removal progression carrying people, well the 4th person must have been taking the pics!

The metal edge is constructed of heavy gauge steel. They are screwed onto the top of the slide floor. This metal is where we put the rug boards, in our 320. After seeing how the steel plates are mounted, I'm not convinced that the rugboards wouldn't cause them to separate from the OSB.
H’mm you must have "thick" rug boards. Mine thinner ones go under the Darco floor board not under the metal flange. Yes, I can see over time the metal flange may have issues.

OK now to a funny note. When I saw the slide off the camper, a doggie house random thought came to mind. Complete with a rubber roof

And it looks like you now have total ventilation in that camper….

Keep up the good work.

Great pics, and very informative.

You son must be having a blast.

It's a shame we aren't closer, I need some siding for the front of mine.

Thanks again for the great pictures,
