I recently posted about significant floor rot and mold from water damage in my '06 16' Bambi CCD (see thread below). The trailer is still at the shop, but the pics make me wonder if it's OSB. I'll update once I find out.

As a wannabe, I find this discussion very enlightening. We're trying to decide whether to buy an older used unit with the idea of doing a shell-off or to buy newer. Sounds to me like buying older and putting in the floor that you KNOW is sound is the way to go. Are there any serious weight penalties for replacing the OSB or plywood with a composite material like Trex or Nylodeck?

So far (and I have yet to tabulate all the data) the only safe means to see if you are potentially buying a TT with an OSB subfloor seems to be to poke around in it to check for yourself.

Luckily, I don't think it would take much looking to confirm one way or another.

My 1995 34' Excella has plywood. My 2009 SOB that it replaced did not. It is waiting on some OSB repairs before I sell it. The Excella is in better shape, (except for the sagging padded ceiling) even though it is 14 years older.
