Soft Floor bubble?

I am a new member only a few minutes old. I am looking at a GS Sun Stream that is a 7 out of 10. There is a soft spot right in front of the sink in the middle of the isle. The Heat duct is right under the floor. The spot seems to be a bubble rather then a weak spot.

If I buy it, a floor replacement is in order. Does Any one have any ideas how to treat it when I pull up the carpet? Harold in Kansas

Is it plywood if so it should be a matter of locating the joists and cutting back to them then drop in a new piece. You may have to scab onto the floor joists to increase the width to make sure the inset has good bracing under it.

I would replace as big an area as possible with Marine grade plywood because it appears the sink has been leaking.

Some of the entry level RVs skimp on the floor bracing. It maybe possible to get a wood brace in from the bottom.

Personally, I'd skip on this RV.

Thanks to all for reponding to a Jr member. I have taken your advice and after a second look, there was more then just a soft spot and I passed on the unit. I am looking forward to travel, not a new hobby. I will now fade into the back ground. When I popup on some brand forum you will know I have found my traveler. Harold in Kansas
