Floor construction of Sunset Trail

Looking at purchasing Sunset Trails, anyone tell me information about floor construction? Could find nothing on line.

On my unit, according to the brochure:

2"x3" floor joists, R-12 floor insulation, 5/8" tongue and groove plywood, Congoleum flooring.

Not sure what is used on newer models now.

Hank; I forgot to mention that the floor joists are aluminum on 16" centers running lengthwise on my trailer with the insulation in between them.

On the newer units, you may have 1/2” T&G and R6 insulation but everything else is the same as described by Oliver.

We have a 2017 Sunset Trails 291RK (rear kitchen) and I have been doing some fixing/mods. I found about 2" of styrofoam with plywood (can't remember if 3/4" or 1/2"). I could see how thick the floor was at a place where things like water and electrical went from inside into belly. After I put foam pipe insulation on all pipes and added actual insulation to inside frame and under plastic in belly, I used foam-in-a-can to plug the holes into belly. I also added an extension to the 2" vent from furnace that came out into the underbelly but BEHIND the rear gray water tank. I extended it forward with PVC pipe and drilled large holes at an angle to direct airflow foward. Now it actually is a better "Extreme Weather package". So anyway the floor in this one is around 2" thick and has a nice solid feel.

Thx for the complete explanation. Great idea on the heat vent. Sounds like you have done an excellent job on the floor work.
