Soft Floor

In our 21FBRS, our floor is soft. By soft, i can tell the difference between where the studs are in the floor and not around the kitchen area when walking in bare (or Socked) feet.

I have asked the dealership to look at it and they returned saying they didn't notice anything different in that floor over others.

In all truthfulness, I tip the scales at 275. I know that may play a role, but i am wondering if it is just me or should I make more waves with the dealership?

Thanks in advance for your help

I can feel "give" in the floor of my 21FBRS when I walk on it. I weigh 235. I was worried about it at first, but felt better after eating a donut and a bag of chips.

We have been full timers in our 5r for over four years now. The floors are comprised of styrofoam sandwiched between two pieces of luann and then covered by thin vinal flooring. This year I installed a 3/8" floating hardwood floor. I think I could have and probably should have used 1/2". It took three boxes, about 25 lbs each. The slide does hit at one spot on the threshold, not bad.
