Bottom Side

I just purchased a Scamp 5th wheel, 1997 model. It it's in pretty good shape but I was wondering if it would be advisable to coat the floor underneath and if so, with what?

The underside of the floor is already soaked in resin. No need for anything else.

You might be better off focusing your attention on the frame. There is some good discussion here: Best rust inhibiting paint..

In terms of preserving the floor, the best thing you can do is reseal windows and vents periodically and deal with leaks promptly. Most floor rot starts from above.
