How Can I Fix The Sagging Floor In My R-Vision Travel Trailer?
by Rita Denis
This R-Vision travel trailer had heavy people using it and the floor sags or feels mushy between the heat registers.
ANSWER Greetings Rita thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
My suggestion is that you take your RV to an RV repair shop and have them look at the floor in your travel trailer. The floor should not be sagging as you describe. In some lightweight trailers such as yours a little play in the floor can be normal, but if it is as bad as you say there may be a problem.
The floor bracing system is part of your trailer's aluminum frame. In fact the floor is attached to the trailer frame prior to the walls of travel trailer being installed. In most cases the walls of the travel trailer sit on top of and are attached to the floor. So if there is a problem with the floor you just can't take the old floor out and put a new one in.
Another cause of a sagging or mushy floor can be that the floor has been exposed to excessive moisture which has compromised and softened the floor itself. The only way you will know is by having your trailer inspected by a qualified RV repair facility.
If it is discovered that the floor needs to be re-enforced or the floor bracing needs to be repaired; it will not be a cheap repair. The bottom of some travel trailers are completely sealed and may involve removing holding tanks, etc.
The only way that you will find out for sure is by getting the inspection done.
