Suprise Wood and no rust!?!?!

So I got my skoolie home today, I started to pull up the rubber floor, expecting to find wet wood, and rusty floors, and to my suprise neither! The metal is nice an shinny with no rust. Anyone else have this much luck?

I think most southern buses will not have wood in them on the floor. I believe the reason is the wood is to help with insulating, but I am not sure. I went to St Louis MO for the bus I have and no wood and floor was near mint except for just minor rust in the corners in the back.
