In dealer talk "soft floor" means "OH MY GOD IT'S LEAKING AND THE FLOOR IS ROTTING OUT! But please don't say anything to this guy!"

My first HTT was a 2000 Shamrock 21' and it had a couple issues. Installed a recall kit for the front bunk supports, the twist locks for the bunks kept rusting(had to keep a can of WD-40 handy), and just before we got rid of it in 2005 i found it had a leak by the door. Floor was starting to yellow, i think it was from the awning mounting. Also the front bunk had a minor leak which i sealed with some silicone. Otherwise we liked it, towed great, easy to set up, and it was roomy inside.
Price a new Roo 19 at RVWholesalers. This will give you a price point if nothing else. Many times "local dealers" want nearly as much for a 5 year old camper as you can buy a new one from a high volume dealer.
Lakeview to Lakeview (MN to OH) is a 12 hour drive to be sure, but folks have driven much further and saved thousands of dollars. About $500 in travel expenses. There's also a high volume dealer in Chicago, about half the distance.
