Floor thickness

Does anyone know what floor thickness is used on a Silverback 35bq4? Mine feels soft to me. Maybe I'm just getting bigger around the middle. Lol. . I am 240#, but still I think it's a bit excessive.

Thanks

I believe the floor is 5/8 inch plywood.

Thanks. Do you know what spacing the floor joists would be at? Does anyone else experience this?

Floor joists are on 16 inch centers. I haven't experienced any softness to the floor and we are starting our 4th season with our fifth wheel.

Well that makes me wonder. No signs of leaks or water damage

Ours flexed when we had our QB4. Didn't really notice it much unless you were watching someone else walk across the floor. Even though the longitudinal floor joists are on 16" centers, the transverse frame members that they sit on aren't. More like 4 feet spacing on those I think. So, 5/8" plywood on a 2x3, on top of a 4' spaced frame member, yes, it'll flex some. Not like a home by any means.

Is this soft floor feeling throughout the trailer or just in one area?

I have an ultra light trailer, and walking down the hallway into the bedroom, I have a soft spot. I had no signs of water damage. Upon inspection of the underbelly, I notice that the cross supports were nearly 8' feet apart!!!! No wonder! So, just today, I added another cross support and a center support to cover the hallway.
