Connecting subfloor to u-channel

Hey guys


For those that secured the subfloor recently, what did you use for bolts?

I have elevator bolts to secure to the frame but need to know if the same bolts are used for the u-chann?

Thanks in advance

Hello stupidnoob

For bolts that go through the U channel, sub-floor and outriggers/front and rear cross members, I use a 1/4"-20 hex head bolt with a thick fender washer or a piece of 1/4" thick aluminum plate under the bolt head.

In the curved areas of the corners that secure the U channel to the sub-floor only, I use an E bolt.
