Just registered, and was wondering about differences in subfloors for fith wheels. We've been looking, and some salesmen say plywood, others say composite. It's very confusing, so really looking for some knowledge before we make our purchase.

We just got a F250 diesel so we can move up from our pop-up to a fiftth wheel. Looking forward to more camping!!
Great site:-)

Welcome to iRV2 !
Congrats on the F250 diesel, and get ready for some fun with a 5'r.

...and i would have guessed that most of the floors are a composite of wood/then resin/and wood on top, and then pressed together firmly.

But, there are some areas within iRV2 that contain a wealth of knowledgeable folk. Say a couple 'howdies' here and then post this question in the TT and FifthWheel area down below.

again, Welcome !
Mike

Dutches81, welcome to iRV2. Glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences as well as help out in any areas we can. I would ask the sales person to show you a cut away of the construction used in a model you might be intrested in. This will show you not only wheather the floor is plywood or composit but how thick and how the rest of the unit is built. The composite floor in some are 2" thick and seamless which for us has been flawless. Good luck and enjoy the hunt. Take your time and keep up with the research, you will be glad you did.

This site is the greatest, and I'm already learning lots. Next step is to keep on with the research, and tomorrow we'll be looking at some fifth wheels!
Thanks!
