Delamination of the floor can be an issue with older caravans. Both Patsy 1 & 2 suffered from it but we were able to get it fixed under warranty - thankfully. Basically, it's when the layers of ply that make up the floor of the van become separated, creating an effect not unlike walking on a mattress. Ok, maybe thats an exaggeration but you get the idea. Take a look at the link below for a very concise blog of a repair on a 1995 Elddis Golden Crown Signet called Elvis:

Some will know that we went to the Spring Caravan and Camping Show at the N.E.C in February 2013, however I couldn't be arsed to do a blog on our visit. Thankfully, someone else did (on their visit, not ours, just to be clear!) - a fellow Tweeter, and wrote a great article for Cover4Caravans (@cover4caravans), the link to which you will find below.
