Been looking at Heartlands site and little confused on this construction. The floor of the slide outs. Is it plywood with some sort of backing for insulation? If so wouldn't the rollers crush the insulation. Or is it laminated like the rest of coach?

I'll start this...but am not an expert by any means. We had a 2008 and it had what I call chip board floors. Having had to repair the floor due to a water leak it seems to be a "sandwich" of sorts. Under the top chip board there seems to be poured in place foam.

Having done basement work too the ceiling there is the same chip board too.

Not sure how they hold the sandwich together but it seems to work really well as long as there is no long term water intrusion.

Now have 2013 and it seems to be the same construction......chip board.
