Windjammer flooring problem

Hi guys ,we are a couple of retirees from New Zealand who have been living full time in our 3008W van for 8 years now ,recently we have noticed soft spots appearing on our floor in various places ,we realise we are probably lucky itís taken so long for this to happen as 8yrs full time equates to about 20 odd years of general wear and tear,
Question is what is the best way to repair,do we lay 9mm ply over top of existing floor or do we take floor up and replace entire floor with 12 or 15 mm ply.
Appreciate your thoughts, cheers.

Welcome from New Jersey, I think most would say pull up the old floor and see where and how the soft spots came to be?
