Probably, but I'm willing to bet once you uncover the damage, you'll find yourself needing to replace floor joists, wall studs, and much more floor than you originally anticipated.

What year and model of unit? On most trailers the walls sit ON the floor. It can be done but will require some finesse.

Soft floor under carpet

I have a 2004 Dutchman 5th wheel, next to my push-out under the carpet I noticed that the floor is getting softer wider and wider. I am wondering if the carpet can be removed from the inside and wood sub-floor replaced? Also how is the carpet attached under the push-out on the main floor? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
