Should my used 2004 Grandby have some type of salt on the bottom to allow water to drain. If so what orientation and material is used?
Yes, if you want, it’s a lattice. Stiles along the sides of the bottom, with 3 or 4 rails connecting. It’s usually 1/2” ply wood. I believe some people don’t have them, but it’s protection for the bottom. You can also put hard foam panels into the lattice for insulation, it would resemble a paneled door. Your choice.
To keep things together, I merged your second thread into this one.

Welcome to the forum...there are typically plywood strips running the length of the camper on either left and right edge and equally spaced across the bottom. My 2012 Hawk has only these long strips with no cross lattice. On my camper there are 4 layers of 5/8" ply 4" wide.
This is a good time for you to measure the side height of you truck bed and factor how high you wish to build up the bottom strips....in order to provide clearance where the camper hangs over either side of the bed,
One needs about 2 inches of vertical clearance to allow for some clearance of camper body over the top of your truck fenders
Some campers have greater clearance above the bed sides and some folks store assorted stuff there....shovel, ground carpet etc.
Good luck with the new camper !
Where are you located ?
