Squeaky Floor

Hi guys just wonder if any of you have squeaky floors on your trailars.
I bought my used trailer 3 years ago, is a 2000 22' Tahoe lite. It is in really good shape inside and everything works perfect. I got it to see if I was going to like and enjoy it, and I really like it and enjoy every minute I go some place with it. So I try to keep everything working and in good conditions. I only use it 5-6 times at year casue of work and kid school but this year on the first trip I notice a squeaky noise on some parts of the floor as I walk and I dont think it was like that before.
My question is if I should have some concern about it or its something normal as the trailer gets older. Like I said I like to keep everything in working conditions and and keep it nice.
Right now Im removing the old fade window tint and putting new, and planning to replace all the suspension in winter time. I like to keep it at least couple more years or so then try to get the next size and newer.
But I dont want to spend too much money and time if the squeaky noise on the floor is the beginning of a big problem.
Thank you.

Just like a sticks and bricks home, you are going to get squeaks here and there over time.

Probably nothing to be concerned over. I would check for any soft spots (signs of water intrusion/damage) in that area and then if none, just continue to monitor.

No leaks on my trailer yet, and yes I been checking to see if the spot where it squeaks is soft and it feels pretty solid as I push on the areas. I keep checking I have might be 2-3 more trips this year.
Thank you

I had a squeaky area of floor in the bedroom of a 5th wheel at the front closet. I have also walked on new models just yesterday that I noticed squeaky floors.

It is normal and nothing to worry about IMHO. My squeaky floor did not bother me enough to fix it because it was not anywhere I normally walked.

Just like in a house it really is not easy to fix. It is also likely to go away depending on humidity.

The plywood flooring can be screwed into aluminum cross supports or wood. The flooring most likey is tongue and groove. I bet this is what is squeaking...the tongue and groove.
