What is the best way to replace boards on a 16 foot trailer? I thought you had to cut the back lip off and the boards would come right out (still think this will work) but someone told me that you dont have to. Of course this is from a person that had someone tell him. He said to cut the old boards out. Next, put as many boards back in as you can by putting them diagonal then straightening them once there in place. The last board or 2 he said to put in under the lip then put a pipe under it. He said the 16 foot board will bow over the pipe. Then use a large C clap to hold the other end down and then use a hammer to remove the pipe. He said when the pipe comes out that the board will snap into place. Has anyone ever done this before? Normally when something seems too easy it normally is .any suggestions? We never had to replace a floor before.
