2011 keystone retreat floor

I have just purchased a 2011 keystone retreat.I have the 39fden model. there is a lot of give in the floor especially in the kitchen area from the start of the kitchen counter through to the front of the refrigerator. it is worst in front of the sink area. is there anyone out there who has a new retreat who is experiencing the same thing? or is there anyone out there with a new retreat who has a rock solid floor in this area? i would love to hear from you.

I have a 2010 Sprinter 250RBS and have noticed the same thing in the kitchen area around the refrigerator.

I can't wait to hear if someone else knows why this is.....

2011 keystone retreat floor

We have a 2011 Retreat 39FDEN and have not had any trouble with the floor flexing at all. Initially we had a lot of play throughout the trailer but it was due to insufficient blocking. Kaylee I assume your Retreat is permantally parked? If so you need to be sure you have enough blocking. Also I PMed you sometime back when you made your initial posts, hope you got them.

Good luck

floor squeak

We have a 2011 Xlite Cougar TT and it also has a floor squeak starting around the fridge and going forward through the bathroom and stops just over the threshhold for the bedroom. will be taking the unit to the dealer for for warranty stuff next week and will be asking them correct it. Will let you know what happens

I have a 39 fden retreat and my floor is just like yours. It is weak all across the floor just like you describe. I have mine blocked at least every 5 to 6 feet also. Would like to know if you have had issues with water leaks on A frame slide out.Thanks Mike

Check to see if the flexible area is over the under-floor heating duct. The floor can flex in this area as the duct does not provide much support.

I also have the 250RBS showed dealer the soft spot, telling him it has been there since I purchased it new. He said he felt is was rotten, and had water damage. I don't think this is correct. He said it has probably gotten into all the flooring, and an estimate to repair would be $5000-$7,500!! Now, in his defense, he has not "inspected" it, just stood on the area, and pushed up and down. I will take it in week after next when he returns from vacation, to get an inspection......keeping my fingers crossed, and praying!!

I hear the beginnings of a "horror story" unfolding here. Nobody can "fortune-tell" that water damage has "gotten into all the flooring" by simply standing on a "soft spot" in an RV known to have "soft floors"...... Be cautious with this kind of $5000-$7500 "sooth-saying" ........

BUYER BEWARE !!!!!!
