I have 2006 same model and the floor is soft in many places but around the vents are indeed very soft.

That's not a bad idea but how would you do this and still allow enough room for the slides to come in and out?

Talked with the factory rep at Forest River. Thge hardwood floor can be 3/8" in hieght. Although he did advise running the boards lengthwise to ensure support. If you remove a resister and peel back the alumimum tape you will see how the floor is constructed. Styrofoam sandwiched between two very very thin pannels... this compacts over time and does not provide proper support.....

and they wont stand behind their product. and if you have carpet close to it you have to use a rubber strip that clicks under the carpet and clicks to the wood floor and your right about the layout of the wood. and i was told you cant do it in the bathroom because of the flange under the toilet is this true.?

Thank goodness for this forum and issues like this coming up in conversation because we almost bought a Flagstaff 5'ver with this type of floor until reading threads like this.
I stayed clear of this type of construction when shopping for our new fifth wheel knowing I'd have a fit when these issues surfaced.
Good luck!
