Question Floor Replacement & part of the frame

I have pic to show the damage on the frame in my pic ..My question is should I remove and replace floor before or after i remove the main frame?The first length brace is gone the rest are fine. The two main brace are bad and need replacing but only half way to the second length brace.This in the rear....

Can the camper hold up if we remove the floor?
If its better to put floor in before replacing the braces and we cut them out to make it easier to get the new floor under the frame?.... with out the camper giving

How should we go about this we want to have this done tomorrow or should i say start on it .Not sure what to replace first.. any tips for us....will post more pic once we start..

How far back does it go? I had to replace a section in the rear of mine. Whie I was at it I added a foot to the compartment. Cut the bad section out and grafted in the new ones. This did not require floor removal, however I had it out for floor rot........

Ill try to explain but if you look at the pic in the member area under my name it might help you understand what aim trying to say....In your pic and mine you see where the storage box was well that two main beam running the length of the trailer is gone...Where u can see part of the two with brace in your pic top and bottom mine are complete gone .the second brace is fine i would say maybe 2 1/2 feet maybe, not sure .i will have to cut alittle more of the two main brace out than what i can see than you did .which is also mid way of the floor in the rear.But the floor is gone also in three places... so should i try to put the floor in before replacing the two main beam while there cut out...or will the shell flex or give.i was thinking of putting two jacks under the frame cutting out the beams.then putting the floor in and the putting the beams back in ....is this a good idea?or should i replace the beams and then replace the floor in two half's?I hope this make since to you..i tryed to explain the best i could

Safest route is to make the frame repairs prior to installing new flooring.

So you think fixing the frame first....You replaced your was it due to the fact that water was running underthe floor from the storage department. there a sheet of metal thats what cause our floor to rot .Did you leave it running under the floor and seal it or did you remove it.My hubby trying to figure out away to stop this sheet of metal from causin the problem even if we seal it.We dont think it will stop the water completely..

I had SEVERER rot along the back wall due to the water intrusion. Have you checked out my pages?

I had the banding all off, above the storage compartment. sealed it with Par Bond. The leak has stopped (100%) for a year now! So I left the metal and replaced some of the agle iron.

Oh yeah

Yes we have look at all your post.I love the table idea and the boarder....Is it still stuck ?
I cant really make it out did you put the floor under the frame or was it not bad under there? i
If you did replace it under the frame how did you pick it up enough to get the new floor under there.We thinking about jacking the rear Uchannel up alittle on both sides ,but other said the frame may give
