Ford Belleville 21' 1982 Flooring Question.

Hi there ! I'm new here and your projects are incredible ! Thoses vintages RVs are so beautiful.

I'm shopping now for a vintage RV and i've seen one yesterday. It's a Ford 350 Belleville (351w motor), 1982, 170 000 km/105 000 mi. Everything was in a good condition so far. But (because there's always one), we've noticed that flooring was bending sideways of the truck. Not much at all but enough to notice that kitchen counter was a bit out of level.

i've attached a picture of this (sorry for quality, taken with my phone)

Is this a sign of flooring structure fatique and needs attention or normal bending that occurs over time ?

Thanks a lot -

the little french canadian guy

Could be previous owner installation. Look underneath and see if you see visable signs of carriage dropping.

Definitely check the brackets to the frame that the body sets on. Most of these are added on by the coach company and sometimes the welding is not too good. Also the coach floor could be loose and wearing on the brackets.
