I have an aluminum subfloor and no channels. I just put down 5/8" plywood and it made a big difference in the stability of the camper. I then treated the plywood with a waterproof sealer. After screwing the plywood down, I plan to treat it with the waterproof sealer again... Wait a few days. And install the new floor...

Alberta bound, pretty ingenious routing the bottom of the floor instead of the top. WISH I'D THOUGHT OF THAT! Would keep all the skin/shell holes the same wrt the c channel except hold down plates and belly pans, which I have replaced all. I would have probably still had problems with the channels for the wheel wells.
