The saga continues

I have been working on it a little every now and then. I have the aluminum angle cut to length and am attaching angle brackets on ends. I will be posting some more pictures in near future.

I feel this is the fix. As far as I can see this is just a poor design on the part of Jayco although I am not sure that they are the ones that put the floor construction together. If they did then my three year old granddaughter could have designed it better.

Anyway, I will get back to you on this soon.

we have the same camper with the same issue in the same spot.

Like you I have done all the roof maintenance and am sue there is no leak.

I was thinking about running a Pergo type floor over the top the entire trailer from rear to the bedrrom door. hoping that this would spread the load out accross the firmer supported areas.

My only concern is the added weight, any thoughts?
I have been underneath withthe belly off and can tell you the bracing option from that way would be almost impossible, and I really dont want to cu the floor if I can avoid it.

I have seen (if your in the market for a new floor covering) using sheet rock screws and screwing down into the floor into some 2x4 studs that was being held up underneith to add support/strength to the area that needs it. all depends how/where the tanks are located, wiring etc.. the studs/support pieces will be exposed underneith the camper, not cutting into the under fabric. then recover with carpet or your preference. might want to hit the studs with some black paint or even undercoating to protect them. of course may vary with some models construction.

Heres what im talking about. the floor is solid and has no give/flex what so ever. just needs a quick coat of undercoating to protect the wood.

glad I came across this thread. My '06 Jay feather Baja had a bad joint in the shower drain that went unnoticed since it ran inside the cabinets. This caused softness along the drain path under the floor. This thread gave me the info I needed to know what type of floor I would be dealing with.
