17' Boler bathroom floor question

Hi there,
We are new Boler owners and just getting to know our new trailer.

We noticed the bathroom floor seems to have quite a bit of "flex". Wondering if other owners have noticed this and it is the norm or if there is a need to stabilize the floor somehow? I always feel nervous standing on it, like the floor is going to crack.
Thanks!

Maybe it's rotted under the shower. Look under the trailer in the area of the shower and see if you can see any water damage.

Thanks. That is a good idea. Just thought it might be something to do with how they are made and wondered if any other owners had noticed it. Will take a look underneath!

Yeah, lay on a creeper or a piece of cardboard so you can slide around and look for discoloration. Better yet, take a screwdriver and tap... don't dig and you'll find out if the floor is solid, or mushy in places. A piece of chalk to outline the mushy parts (I hope you don't find any!) will help in if/when you need/want to replace part of the floor... if you need ideas on how to "mark" that from the top, let us know.

An icepick can be a handy probe, too. And a digital camera.
