    My first post ever! Anyone put a metal bracket to support the corners for the lift? Top still goes up straight but three of the four legs at through the floor resting on the frame. I have the interior out and was getting ready to put flooring in. I really wanna replace the entire floor so it’s done right but I don’t know how hard that’s going to be I’m located in Stockton CA

    Welcome to the Portal from South Carolina. Use the Portal search feature here. Plenty of floor replacements documented.

    I’ve seen where someone had to do just that as his lift corners were Starting to go through the floor as well. You would need solid wood to screw that plate on though, but I think that should work. Part of me does question if rain etc is using the lift bars to go down and it’s getting the floor wet. Which is compromising the floor even more. If that is the case, you may need to figure how to stop that. My old 1990 camper had separate canvas to wrap around the lift poles, but they were only tacked on and usually were the first to go.

    Thank you, I ended up replacing the wood in the corners and reenforcing with metal brackets.
