But my question is, does anyone have pictures of a floor repair in a hybrid? I haven't taken the floor up yet and would like to know what I'm in for. How it's made and attached. I know it's a sandwich of wood and insulation but that's all I know.
Any help would be appreciated.
As nobody with more experience has answered...
I had a similar situation. The dealer didn't lie, but they did let me think that the ceiling and wall water damage was what I needed to repair. I learned that if there is a water leak it almost always works its way down to damage the floor.
The floor is a composite with foam sandwiched between plywood or other sheet good. As long as the layers remain unaffected by water damage it can be quite strong.
In my opinion, repairing sections of floor as opposed to a complete floor replacement is the way to go for DIY. Likely the value of the trailer doesn't support (pun intended) a full fledged repair.
I added supports under the flooring in sections. That kept me from needing to replace some compromised flooring sections. Your damage may be different.
Some of my repairs are outlined here.
Good luck. vic
