We recently bought a 1999 Casita and the floor is soft from the fridge all the way back to the bed area. I looked very hard for water damage when I bought it and didn't find any. The guy I bought it from said it was fiberglass under the carpet. I called the factory and they said it was carpet on top of fiberglass then wood support and plywood under that and fiberglass on bottom. I can see why fiberglass might give a little but I am not sure. It is very soft but I have jumped up and down and it seems ok. Does anyone know what it is like under the carpet on a 1999 model? I hope this is not something I am going to have to do work to but it is driving me crazy not knowing what is under there. The rest of the casita is in great condition!

Our first Casita was a 1999. We had it for 5+ years and the floor was solid as a rock. I've never heard anything to suggest that the floor in 1999 would be any different than any other year. I'm not an expert on this but your description of the floor as "soft" makes me think it's water damage.
