WOW... yes 5 to 6 gallons of water that sits and festers can do a bunch of damage in a TT. Mistakes happen and if one ever has to deal with the aftermath that lesson would be burned in ones head forever. I know the life lessons I have had to deal with learned the hard way I never forgot.... We all have them.
Good news is it was not water from above like thruough the roof area. If so then there is a trail of rot somewhere else leading to the floor. Roof seams can be a killer of a TT. If you have not been up on a ladder to to look at the roof seams, do so soon and any little hair line crack in the caulk now is the time to fix it. Do at least twice a year. I do it every time I wash the roof, about 4 times a year.
Good luck and happy camping in your nice new floor camper
