2604 flooring

My floor is getting weaker and weaker. One of these days I think I might fall through. Dealer tells me it is suppose to be spongee because of the way it was constructed and the materials used (styro foam and luan board) Cabinet is drooping by the oven. It is a 2604 model ordered new in 2008. Did anyone else experience this and if so is there a fix?

this thread will have what you need...

Soft floor between floor beams in 2701SS?? :( Anybody Reinforce??

bottomline...it's a problem that gets worse over time based on weight of person(s) walking on the floor and how much the TT is used.

i've done temporary fixes with 2'x4" boards between the beams.

in the link noted above, the owner did major welding of square box tubing between the beams, an ideal fix to this common problem.

I have had the same problem with my 2008 1809, I installed 4x4 treated lumber and screwed them between the floor beams, it is how the floor is made as said before, so far, it seems to be working ok. I use my trailer for several months each winter..seems to be what happens with this type of construction
