Exclamation Wood Recommendations for Camper Frame

I have a general question as to recommended wood(s) to rebuild a camper frame. I have a 1987 Sunline F2353 gooseneck trailer that the back wall has suffered water infiltration from the lower corner of the rear window. The former owner had clued me in on the leak and the interior paneling showed it as it was warped. Removing some of the paneling showed that the right rear window frame, as well as the corner frame of the body, were gone. I was considering using 3/4" poplar planks cut down to the depth needed. The floor also will need to be done over in that area as well. I hope to post pictures of the project.

Hi,

When you say camper frame, do you mean the wall studs/framing? Assuming so, if your wall studs/framing is made out of 3/4" thick by 1 1/2" or wider/narrower studding, then yes', 3/4" thick popular will work ripped to size to match. Or pine board. Basically softwoods. Sunline only used spruce, pine or fir (SPF lumber, all softwoods) in the original build.

As the campers evolved in years, they went from 3/4" thick to 1 1/2" thick by 1" wide. Basically a 2 x 10 or 12 ripped into 1" wide and the 1 1/2" came as the stock size. Again all SPF wood material.

Hope this helps and ask away any questions. Looking forward to your pictures.

John

Hi aiequipos,

On your camper, we can try and help suggest what may need to be fixed on your camper, but we need to know more about the problem.

Suggest you start a new post for just your camper, tell us about the problem, where you see it, and ideally you can attach some picture of the area, both close up and far away so we can get a perspective on the problem. Then we can better suggest how to fix the issue and what may be involved.

Also, tell us in that post the year and model of your camper. Knowing this information we know what vintage Sunline you have as they changed the manufacturing methods over the years. What works to repair a 70's Sunline has different sizes and methods of building them then one in the year 2000's for example.

Hope this helps


John
