Soft Floor 2009 Aerolite

I have a Aerolite model RG26 trailer that has developed several soft spots in the flooring. I have taken it to a reputable RV repair business and they said that in the trailer there are only four support trusses for the entire unit! There was no water damage as the unit is completely tight, just make incorrectly. They are in the process of putting in some steel trusses to shore up the flooring (hopefully). Has anyone else experience this problem with this particular brand of trailer? Any luck from the company? Thanks so much, Bill

Its a vacuum bonded floor. There a fewer supports to stiffen up the floor. I have seen these floors redone with beefed up structure but its really a pain. Plus it make trailer heavier. You may want a different type structure in a different unit.

My Fleetwood has the same problem, so I added a layer on top (inside) to the worst area, carpeted it and now the floor is nice and firm.
