It's actually a 1982 Fleetwood.

Still a good chance the floors are particle board, with the flooring installed under the walls.

I don't mean to sound insensitive.Your sitting in a mobile home with the floors falling out of it yet on a computer paying for an internet connection?

We or most of us understand doing what you have to do to get thru tough times or just to get ahead.
You do have to be aware how bad mold can be for some people, and that will be up to you on how much you can put up with. With taking time to think about I would just cover the spongy floor and if you want to inspect the floor first, just cut holes in the old floor to have a look at joists. Falling thru a floor is one thing, being under that floor when it falls down is another.
