Wildwood floormount tie downs

I just purchased a 2018 Wildwood FSX 181 toy hauler. The tie down rings in the floor look very flimsy. I want to install heavier duty ones with through bolts and backing plates. My question is how do I remove the insulation to access the underside of the floor?

Assuming that you're talking about the Coroplast plastic covering on the underbelly. You can either remove it in sections by grabbing the anchors (powder shot fasteners) with a set of vice grips, twisting and pulling them out. Or you can cut three sided access flaps with the hinge part toward the front in the covering wherever you need them and then tape them back closed with Gorilla, or other good strong tape once you're done.

What you refer to as coroplast barrier looks like a one piece vapor barrier between the frame and the coach. Are we talking about the same thing? I don't see any fasteners or a way to access the underside of the floor minus cutting the barrier described above.

If the barrier looks woven then that's not what I'm talking about. Coroplast is really corrugated plastic, like political signs are made of. If you can see the frame rails then you don't have coroplast.

Can you post a pic of it?

The material is a light weight fabric type that appears to cover the entire undercarriage of the coach.

That's just a tarp type covering. It's adhered to the underside of the floor assembly.
