Moving a 1958 Airstream

We just bought a 1958 air stream and need to move it down a steep bumpy canyon to get it home. The floor in the back is rotted out and I can shift the shell back and forth. What can I do to shore up the shell just to get it home?

You might want to put a couple of wide straps all the way around it and just snug them down,that may keep it from falling off the frame. Dave

the floor in the rear has totally rotted out, but still seems to be attatched at the fenderwells.
Should I support the shell from underneath?
