Adding additional lag bolts to secure floor joists
I have some floor creaks in my new camper and crawling under I noticed I only have 4 bolts and the outriggers attaching the floor to the camper frame. Does anyone think I would have any issues if I added lag bolts at every cross member to better secure the floor "joists" to the frame? Even at the front and back it's not attached...

I picked up some 1/4" Simpson Strong tie bolts...might add a few...but not go crazy. Where I did tighten those 4 bolts it did stop the floor from creaking there. But yeah...dont want to make it so tight that it doesn't move.
