Cedar Creek & Squeaky Floor

I recently purchased a 2006 Cedar Creek Silverback and the bedroom floor is squeaky between foot of the bed and the cabinet. Is this a somewhat normal event or do I have a problem? This is my first 5th wheel so I don't have anything to compare it to.
Thanks,
Bob

Cedar creek uses plywood on their floors. Years ago houses used plywood and now they use a composite material to help with squeaks and it is also cheaper. You may have to pull back the carpet and install some screws to get rid of it. Ply wood is stronger than composite. Cedar creeks are nice well built units. Good luck.

Cedar Creek does use plywood, plus it is also tongue and groove, doubling the possibilities of squeaks. The best and easiest way is to pull back the carpet, "dust" the joints, then screw it down. Remember you'll be screwing into metal, so you'll need self-tapping screws. We had a problem with the floor squeaking between the bed and closet also, but it was a result of a flexing issue we had in the upper deck and pin box. That has all been repaired, now no more squeaks.

Hope this helps and God bless,
Mike
