Ultra lite flooring in Coachmen Captiva

Hello all, I'm looking at a 2007 Coachmen Captiva. Im assuming the flooring is the sandwiched luan with styrofoam. Im a big guy, has anyone had issues with this floor sagging over time? How far apart are the aluminum floor trusses? Anything else you would like to share about this travel trailer before I look at it? We are hoping this is our next family camper!

I don't have any specific knowledge of the TT you are looking at but most of the ones I have seen use something like marine grade plywood for flooring.

My Keystone Passport has the sandwiched flooring and it's very sturdy, however the Jayco Feather light we looked at did flex, that's one of the reasons we shied away from it. You'll just have to go try it out and see for yourself, different manufacturers obviously have slightly different build processes and standards. I wouldn't think sagging "over time" would be much of an issue unless you full timed in it, even then it would likely be years before it gives you problems.
