I purchased this 2007 Rockwood 8313 a few months ago. I noticed the floor seems to be bulging and it seems to getting worse. When I say bulging, I don't mean just a bit unlevel or bouncy, but 5/8 inch tall bulges over a 4' length that rolls throughout the the camper. Enough the linoleum is lifting off the floor in the valleys. No, it isn't soft, I can't make the bulges go down.
It seems to be a bit worse than I remember it being when I bought it.
I pulled the bottom covering off the camper to look at the cross members, In the area that is the worst, the floor is bowing up off one of the cross member by 5/8 of an inch right where the bulge is on the inside. I can stick my fingers between the cross member and the floor. Where the floor is level, the floor sits on top of the crossmembers like expected.
So, what is causing this! what can I do about it, it is quite noticeable, even one of the slides seems to be rubbing funny on these humps when I slide the slideouts in.
I am the 2nd owner so I'm out of warranty. I know I can't afford to replace the floor myself. I wonder if Forest River would be willing to help out.
