Floor covering for Eagle
« on: July 27, 2020, 09:37:00 AM »
Does anybody know what type of material was originally used as floor covering? Mine has a carpet covering that I'm thinking of replacing with tile/linoleum as it would be easier to clean.

Yes, it was just a rubber mat.   At least that is what was in my '62 Eagle.

I had a 69 Eagle.  The wood was bare covered by a rubber map.  I also custom cut some indoor/outdoor carpeting using the rubber mat as guide and put it on top of the rubber map.  Wheel wells cutouts were reduced in size and carpet glued to the top of the wheel wells inside.  This does keep the trailer warmer on these cold mornings.  The carpet was from home depot and reasonably cheap.  I had to use a sharp knife to cut the carpet on a wood board.

Check for missing or loose screws connecting the body to the plywood.  I drilled the holes all the way thru as necessary using one size larger machine bolts with washers on both sides and lock nuts on the bottom side.  This solved my body to floor separation issue.  Start on the corners and work your way behind the wheel wells.
