Weak Floor?

In my Dutch Star, when I walk around the floor squeaks and seems a little bouncy. Is it normal for the floors to seem a bit weak and be squeaky?

A little info on your coach would help.

It's a Dutch Star, 2004. The floor is partly ceramic tiles and part dark brown wood strips. I don't know what is underneath it, plywood?

I just took out carpet and laminate flooring , everywhere but the single slide .
Laminate was glued down and a PITA to remove.
Floor under was 3/4" strand board .

You can confirm your material by removing a furnace vent from the floor .

Is all the current flooring , original to the coach ?

Wood strips , if not original , maybe a floating floor and prone to movement and noise when installed in a coach.
