Moving Traveler with no interior skins

Hi,
We need to move our Traveler about 90 miles and need to know what needs to be done to either tow ourselves or on a flatbed. Here are the details:

1. Most interior skins are off
2. New sub-floor installed but not bolted
3. Channel screws not in yet
4. No belly pan

Here's what we are thinking:

A. Bolt the sub-floor
B. Put in channel screws
C. Brace the heck out of the shell, tying it to the floor/frame

Do you think that would be enough to move it that far without damaging it?

We are ready to start the "next phase" of redoing this great 1960 trailer. Thank you for your input. Stacia

You won't need to beace it, but keep your speed under 45 mph.
