Attn Airheads -Shell on floor removal, Can I move it?

Ok guys, Long story short it's been awhile since my last posting but here is the story. 61' Overlander gutted, lower panels in the back removed and the two end floor pieces removed.

My question is, are the interior walls (lowers) a key structural part and should reinstall before moving the trailer? I rented out my house and need to move the stream to my new house (2.5 hours away) and wonder if I need to put it back together 100% before moving? Yes, I am crazy enough to try it but only if I have a 90% chance it won't exlode on the highway. I've tried selling it, errrr attempted to, but I just can't let it go.

Thanks, I'll be out in the camper.

You need to at least try to attach your channel in a few places to the outriggers,that should keep it fine,just no high speed driving. Dave

Thanks Dave. I may just get the two floor pieces in but it will be no easy task I'm sure. If not, maybe build some braces of some sort. ??

I braced up the channels and it made the trip (140 miles) just fine. Well, except for the air condontioner cover that vanished.
