Sinking/waterlogged floors

I am very green to the RV world, and just got my first class A. It has a few issues like any 86' model might have, and the floors between the shower and the restroom are one of them. How bad is BAD, and whats the best way to approach this problem? I work in the construction industry, and want to fix this myself. Any suggestions??? Can anyone quote my general estimate??? Thanks in advance!!!

Nothing for it but to tear up the floor covering and see how bad it is. If it feels soft and spongy, you probably will have to strip out the subfloor and replace. That's a problem, because cabinets and walls are set on top of the subfloor (and often carpets or linoleum as well). You just have to trim back to the edges and be creative as to how to support the outer edge of the new subfloor.

Yep, that about sums it up. Until you open it up and see the damage there's really nothing anyone here can say. Once you do that you can take pictures and then "we" can make suggestions.
Not the best answer but, without seeing the damage/problems, there's not much else.

Find the leak and make sure it is fixed before putting anything new down.
