Floors falling out of slideouts

I have a 2007 Holiday Rambler Presidential Suite 5th wheel model 37RLQ. The floors are falling out from the bottom (all 4 slideouts) with the bedroom being the worst. This is the poorest design I can imagine for a 80K rig... No caps or anything just a butt joint and some caulk...no rivets ir screws...nothing to hold...plywood bottoms are delaminating. Has anyone seen this before or can offer any solutions. Dealer where I bought it wants $4000 to replace floors. I'm lost. I could use a diagram of the floor configuration if anyone knows how these units are assembled...

The HR Presidential Suite's I thought were a high end unit. Can you post any pictures to give a better idea as to the severity of the problem. I can't imagine a 07' having floor problems......

Sounds like you have unresolved water leaks.

I agree with Don, the first step is locating and sealing any water leaks. The best way to find water leaks is to use Sealtech Manufacturing Inc. - RV leaks bubbles recreational vehicles. Locate an RV service center that know how to use one and have it done. When I had ours done in 05 the cost was $100, and I consider it the best money spent on our 5er. After that you are safe in restoring/replacing rotten wood. If you find mold or mildew, use Concrobium Mold Control to seal the area that does not require replacement.

But to have all 4 slides having this problem, I would say it goes back to the construction method they used. Something went bad in the design....This should not have happened in a 07' unit....

Oops, didn't see the (all 4 slides). I agree, this is surely a construction related issue with such a new unit. I would not delay, time passed means further destruction. Keep records of all contact with the dealer and manufacturer, for future use if needed. I know of one lady who successfully negotiated with the manufacturer to replace her "lemon" 5er because she kept detailed records of all contact.

Isn't Holiday Rambler (Monaco) out of the trailer business?
