nicely done. I'vehad to do the same on my Caribou along with the whole bunk area. I was fortunate enough to get filon for free from my brother in-law who works at a camper manufacturer. They had some scrap pieces that were going to the dump, so I got them instead and worked out great.
Great job it looks very nice! I have to start work on my brother in laws Elkorn that the skirt is rotted away. Do you have approximate hours that it took to repair one side?

Thanks everyone for the compliments. The drivers side (the one I just did) I figure I have about 28-30 hours in from start to finish. Probably would have had less time if there were no compartments to work around. This side was fairly easy compared to the passengers side. The drivers side, however, had more damage but when i did the passengers side I did that at the same time as I replaced some of the floor and rear wall around the tailight. I found that the ladder mounts on the roof were not sealed very good and that pretty much let water in to run right down the back wall and pool in the floor until it rotted a spot through to let the water out! With that repair the camper was out of comission for over a month. I also found that I used just about every tool that I own at least once! As for scratching my head - yeah, that happened a few times! I really can't take all the credit for this project either as my 13 year old helped everytime I was in the garage with it. With his "Masters Degree" in Lego engineering he actually came up with some pretty good ideas that I might not have considered...... oh, and the Mrs. kept the sandwiches coming......
