Soft Floor

I have been approached by a couple of well meaning friends that have offered me a free travel trailer for weekend jaunts, because my 40 footer is to much to handle for a short two day fishing trip.
I have a '97 Ford F250 and would like to go.
Trouble is both units have "soft spots in the floor"
How much trouble would it be to replace the spots or the total floor?????

Where is the soft spot, what type of floor, anything on top of it, any other rot (probably).

There are so many questions to answer. To me, it's not hard. Replaced many. It's time consuming.

It depends on what they mean by a "spot." A 10 inch spot is pretty simple. A 10 foot section is a major project. There will be a lot more time than material involved. If you have basic mechanical and carpentry skills, you should do fine.
