I want to install a pool table (3.5 x 7') in my '79 Guerdon double wide.

It has particle board flooring that got water damaged (it's patched) I have new plumbing now.

If I replace the subfloor in that room only with plywood or OSB (I think they're only 5/8") will the joists hold the table?

I'm not sure if any of the joists were damaged by water, and also not sure what size they are.

I'm no particular expert on mobile homes, but I'd question the weight of the table.

I suppose if you found the identical table by model on the internet, you might find the weight with it. I have no idea how heavy all pool tables are. I suppose some are lighter than others.

That's what the engineer needs to calculate after he has the stats on you home.
