There are many variables. The best and strongest method, in my opinion, is to remove the shell and replace the entire floor. The sheets span across the width of the trailer, and are joined every 4 feet, across the crossmembers.
Some have installed split sheets, split in the middle, others have patched bad areas successfully.
It depends on what you want to end up with, and what you are willing to put up with, and how much money and effort you want to pour into your trailer.
I believe that a rotten floor's best friend is a rotten frame. Not sure how you can do a quality repair with the belly pan on and the shell on as well.
