New Floor Over Old

My 2000 has had obvious water damage in the past and the floor is a little spongee, and i don't want to gut it to replace the floor. Any thought on putting a new floor over the old, working around the low traffic areas ( dineete,slide, etc. )

I have already fixex rot around the entry door with new undercarriage wood and a metal plate on top to support the steps.

Feels very solid. I debated about upgrading to oak, don't think it would have made a difference- plus, maybe even more importantly, using the tongue & groove plywood will give you better/tighter seams.

I would replace and repair just to know that I had gotten rid of all the water damaged wood that is going to start rotting. Just covering it up will only prolong replacement but if you do it now youmay be able to salavage most of it and make spot repair or replacments. It is always smart to do things right the first to prevent from having to go back and do them again and find out the problem is worse than you thought and then it will cost you more money.
