Hugh,

Thanks for the information.

I haven't started my job yet as i am still deciding on the 9 mm or 12 mm Ply and also still trying to organise the joiner to lay the plywood.

Hi John
Well I've finished mine. What I did was. Held the nail plates down across the join with Gorilla glue then used hollow wall anchors to anchor the plate to the ply. I replaced the screws in the wall anchors with countersunk screws so they didn't sit proud of the anchor plate. I put in a row across the width of the caravan. Rockwood don't seem to glue the lino down so I was able to slide the 7 mm ply under it using the cuts that I had made in the lino. This made the job a lot easier and cheaper. The floor is a lot stiffer with the spongy area now solid.
Cheers
Hugh

Finally got the floor sorted out by using 7mm H3 Plywood on top pf the original floor and then fitted 2.5 mm thick vinyl tiles on top of the plywood. The slider slides over the new floor system so should be ok going forward.
See photographs below.

It is good to read about this, because I have friends with a late model Fiat Dakota ( and I've been told about other Fiats) that have spongy floors also.
He was told that that the solution was that the fixit ppl pumped it up with air??

Looks really good. If it runs on a WOF just be careful with the extra weight you have just added. If you are a member on the listed facebook group "NZ American Fifthwheel & Travel Trailer Caravan Group" have a look at the discussion on Rockwood and the adding of extras and how some have had their WOF's cancelled and requiring upgrading to a COF.
Cheers
Hugh
