Lil Bigfoot Floor Replacement

I am just about ready to install a new subfloor in my 1987 Lil Bigfoot. After adhering the bottom fiberglass pan to the bottom of the subfloor using thickened epoxy, I will will glassing the entire top surface of the floor to the sides of the trailer using 7 1/2 oz. E-glass cloth with epoxy resin. How many layers of this cloth will be sufficient?

I don't know but I did some reading. I found these threads were interesting. I still don't know and can't confirm that it's even necessary to fiberglass the top surface. It seems it would depend on your intended use and where you live.. or play! Some people have epoxied it and others have used marine grade plywood and not worried further.
