UHAUL CT floor

I stripped out the nasty carpet and there was nothing under it.I am down to the fiberglass. There is a seam down the middle and the floor is lower on either side of the seam. What should I use to bring the sides flush with the middle seam so that I can install vinyl flooring or some type of laminate ?

I don't have a UHAUL, but I would use, 1/4" Marine grade plywood on the whole floor. Then, on that put your vinyl floor.

DAvid's advice sounds good. Another possibility is to use underlayment that is used in home bathroom floors. That should stand up to any wet conditions. The plywood is probably easier to work with, though.

Think twice about punching a bunch of holes in the fiberglass that covers the plywood. The Achilles heel of fiberglass trailers is the plywood floor rotting out, which is why UHaul went to all the effort to encapsulate the plywood floor. Glue should work, though.
