Mold, mildew, fungus and odor is always possible when you have a leak with wet rotten wood and insulation. Make sure you get all of the wet and moldy material out, let it dry out completely, then rebuild/reseal as needed. Using a good disinfectant mildewstat fungicide product in the bad areas may help.

Good luck. Dave

No pictures but I rebuilt one last summer. It was alot of work but for the price it was worth it. Paid 200 for it and put 500 into it. It is a 26' fifth wheel low top. Still have finish work to do and need to take out the oven and deep clean it. mice had a huge nest in it and even after cleaning it up it still stinks. Tried to burn it out but no good. Have to figure that out.

Basically the whole back floor, including the 2x frame under the plywood was rotten, back wall and 10' of the side wall was barely there. My dad and I worked alot of hours on it.

Well I finally tore into it. It's pretty bad. From the wheels back the whole sill is rotted and about halfway up both corners. These things aren't made to take apart. All staples and glue. I've been at it about a week and will probably be another week before I can see the end.I'm only putting in a couple hours a day on it. That's all I can stand.
