Argosy 1978 6.7 Metre Minuet experts out there?
I second Tom's recommendation for floating floors in Minuets with the composite aluminum floors. Fowler RV Interiors installed Armstrong Laminate floating floors in my 6.0 Metre Minuet more than seven years ago, and they still look like new and have been very compatible with the aluminum composite floors. The quiet step underlayment offered by Armstrong was a big plus in the installation as it added significant cushioning that seems to make the floor very quiet and it also seemed to make the floor warmer as well.
I haven't had to have additional crossmembers in my 6.0 Metre, but have corresponded with several owners of 6.7 Metre Minuets who have had additional crossmembers fabricated to limit the sway in composite floors. The good thing is that we don't have to worry about the floors rotting if we find a moisture leak . . . but we do have to be vigilant with leaks just the same particularly if we have floating floors that don't co-exist with moisture.
