I have a strong feeling that there is more that is just as bad. I haven't even checked under the bathroom which is notorious for having issues. I'm going to just cut my losses and sell her off as a project (aka fixer upper) trailer.

Thank you all for your input....except for that one guy and his wire brush idea.

The back end is usually the worst and your pics are from the front?

The bottom of your main rail is rusted away & the "boxing" plate is cracked at one of the holes. This repair work could be done with the body on, however based on what I see, & my experience with the typical frame problems of this era, you're likely to have more issues. Take the complete bellypan off & assess the whole frame before coming to a conclusion.
