Aluminum Floor

This weekend I am going to look at June of 1977 production 20 foot Minuet that I have been told about. Reading the forum it "appears" given the model year and production date that this Minuet might have the aluminum floor and aluminum cabinets.

Can anyone tell me with any accuracy when the aluminum floor went into production, the possibility that this trailer is so equipped and the best way to confirm the floor with the complete belly pan intact?

I look forward to your responses!

Look into the area where the furnace is installed. You can usually find bare floor there.

...or under the fridge looking in from the lower vent, if there is one...I can see bare floor under my water heater as well from inside the closet.

The Minuet was in production from 1977 to 1979. Three models were made. A 6.0 , 6.7 and 7.3
To the best of my knowledge all years and models had aluminum cabinets. As far as the aluminum subfloor all 6.0ís had them, some 6.7ís and few if any 7.3ís.
If the original carpet is still there it does not go under the dinette seats or the lounge.
The subfloor is a foam sheet sandwiched between sheets of aluminum. The aluminum was painted white.
Also like mentioned in posts above the furnace is located under the oven. The refrigerator exterior access door should expose the floor.
