Subfloor installed and a road trip!

We’ve been busy this past fall! Here is a pictorial story of our subfloor getting installed, and our recent roadtrip to the family farm in Michigan’s Upper Penninsula. We had a ton of help from American Truck and Trailer installing our plywood subfloor. They alerted us that there was a massive stinkbug infestation underneath the old floor. We got rid of the bugs, sprayed the frame with rustoleum, and added foam sheets under the new flooring for insulation.

Houston we have a floor!

After we had the floor installed it was roadtrip time – like the very next day ;) Before our roadtrip we also got our axles checked, new brakes, state inspection, and reinforced the awning. We even designed awesome road trip t-shirts! The front has our logo and the back has the shape of Michigan’s Upper Penninsula. Please contact kaitlin@silversistas.com for custom tee shirt design inquiries.

So there you have it, our road trip in a nutshell. I would go into details about the campgrounds we stayed at and how we managed to lock the keys in the truck at a rest stop – but – in the words of Sweet Brown — “ain’t nobody got time for that”.

    We are thinking of buying a airstream and redoing it and was wondering if when u did the subfloor did u have to jack the body of the trailer up off the frame?
