Question Fix floor or leave it ?

I have a 1992 casita spirit 16’ . I have had it for about three years I am getting ready to pull up the old carpet floor put vinyl down. It has always had a slight dip in the floor in front of the kitchen sink. My question is has anyone ever ran into this and pulled the floor up and if you did what did it look like? My floor is not soft so don’t know weather to pull it up or just leave it? Thanks

Endless Casita floor rot and repair threads out there. I’d do a search via google. In front of the sink is a common spot, think leaking plumbing.

Typically rot is more extensive than people think initially. Casita has updated their floor design in recent years. Just As important as repairing the floor is repairing the source of the leak, as rot will spread.

Personally, I don’t leave stuff. I repair properly and it’s good for many years to come.

I'd pull it up to patch the rotted area, then put down laminate. I did my laminate over the carpeting (extra floor insulation) and it worked out great as it was much easier to clean with dogs and beach sand.

i was going to

well you beat me to it! LOL

If you read some of these ways and extents some of the people go to in repairing their floors its way past my abilities! I know removing some bolts and nuts is not that hard to do but it is not any where in my expertise.

Doesn't mean I could not either attempt this or hire someone to do it! How much money and time do I want to throw at something!

Your solution of repairing putting carpet down then flooring makes sense to me but I would forego the laminate flooring our floor is very cold with carpet.

After repair I would make very sure there are no leaks and the plumbing is fixed and no leaks either your camper is no doubt good for a long time yet!
