Cougar 21 RBS floor giving out

Our second year for a new 21RBS. We noticed the floor getting springy this summer. The other day I noticed one spot cracking when I stepped on it. Several other spots seem awfully squishy. Anyone else had this problem? I'll be calling the dealer Monday.

Where on the floor is it "springy and squishy". Any indication of water leaking?

Interested in knowing what you find with your floor.

Our 2018 30RIPR has developed a real soft spot that seems to be growing after each trip out and back. Located between the center island and the entertainment area of the kitchen slide, it is about 1' by 1' wide. With my fingers I can feel what almost feels like a seam underneath the vinyl floor that is like broken off from the floor itself. Looking at videos, the wood underlayment is supposed to be one long piece without a seam but this one almost feels like a straight cut. Looking underneath, the flex is right at a floor support but can easily be pushed back up.

We will be taking it in after our camping season ends at the end of October.

It might be a mis-assumption, but I think a springy and squishy" floor means there IS A WATER LEAK. Fella had best take this camper to a place where they can find water leak and fix floor ASAP. OSB ain't real friendly with water.

The floor is called dynaspan. Itís an 8x24í sheet of marine grade OSB. Has a 25 year limited warranty. Limited being a key word.....if the soft spot is caused by water damage, it may not be covered. Water damage is not normally viewed as a flioor failure, itís an owner failure for not properly maintaining the RV.

Are you sure it's not the styrofoam sandwich board breaking down? Lots of reports of that happening on the forum. Just a thought.

I think all cougars are dynaspan not laminated so no foam core to collapse. Thatís more for a passport, bullet, or Outback. Iíll doible check that info

Just verified, that is a laminated floor, so itís veey possible the spongy feel the OP is referring to is the foam core. Knowing that, I would just verify thereís no water leaks and not be concerned if not.
