Hi there, looking to buy a Salem Hemisphere 30BH, 5th wheel. I canít find anywhere that says what the flooring materials are in these trailers... plywood or pressboard etc? Does anyone have problems with these floors going soft? Thanks in advance!
Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. All brands of RVs in all years have experienced soft floors somewhere. I don't not think it is a very common thing these days with the new flooring material. Use the search function at the top right of the page there are many articles on soft spot.

If your trailer has floor vents you might could pull one and see, maybe under one of the cabinets where plumbing goes through the floor or if you have a tub access in the bathroom. I do not own a Salem but there are places that you may be able to verify if you do some looking. Hope this helps.
I heard whatever the material is used under the bed is usually what the flooring is? My current trailer has plywood under the bed but has OSB under the other storage spots like the booths... and Iím certain the floor is also plywood. The trailer I am looking to buy (Salem Hemisphere) still has me guessing... I need to have another look over it tomorrow.
