A quick followup: We took the trailer in to the local Camping World, where we bought the trailer. They installed some additional bracing under the soft floor spots, covered under warranty, and all appears to be well. I don't suspect I'll have any more floor issues and am happy to save the weight over the 5/8 plywood.

The 2016 brochure calls out a 5/8" plywood deck. Were 2015's a different spec?

I just replaced the front 3 feet of our 3/4 inch "fiberboard" floor in a 2010 Sport 165. I replaced it with marine plywood. The entire front section of TT floor was water damaged and rotten.

Yes, they changed to 5/8" plywood for 2016. We just picked up our 2016 29REKS and I looked at a couple floor penetrations and comfirmed the floor is plywood. We previously had a 2011 Shadow Cruiser and that floor was soft and snapped and popped in a few locations, was glad to unload that for the White Hawk.

Two places, one was in the rear corner where our furnace is located the carpet was held back and you could see plywood surface and there was a floor penetration there as well. Other location was a plumbing penetration under the kitchen sink.

Hello MTBiker, My wife and I are looking at the same unit. How do you like it? What options did you get and what are you using to tow it?

Thanks!

We just picked up our 2016 28 DSBH. The floor is 5/8" tongue in groove plywood. A very solid feel compared to our 2014 28 DSBH.

I wonder. Couldn't soft spots be fixed by drilling a hole in the floor, clearing out some of the foam, and then pouring epoxy in? That is how you fix soft spots on a boat that has the balsa wood rotting between the exterior and interior fiberglass.
