How to Remove Bath Closet

I'm trying to estimate the effort needed to replace/repair my rotted rear floor. Apparently, the bath has to be removed. Does anyone have any experience in pulling out the fiberglass bath? Can it be done by a "hobbyist"/ shade tree mechanic like myself. I've scoped out the effort to remove the cabinets, but the bath really seems daunting.

There's quite a few years between our '66 coach and your '02. However, I was faced with the same delima 3 years ago. Our rear bath had rot from streetside to the curbside. At the time pulling everything forward out was not an option. So I pulled the belly pan, black tank, toilet and the exterior body trim (which exposed much of the floor edge). I was able to replace much of the rotted floor, in sections from underneath. It took making carboard templates and transfering them to new plywood. After dry fitting from underneath and sliding the ply in from the uncovered edges I coated both sides and all edges in fiberglass resin to water proof it. The floor is quite firm now albeit for one squeek...which IS kinda nice .

I have removed some of the cabinents and divider walls in mine to do various repairs and everything seems pretty modular. It seems like it was all designed to come apart and go back together easily. Lots of screws in strange places but nothing cheap like staples or sloppy glued items that i saw. Take pictures so you remember and dive in. I think more than anything else its just time time time... not rocket science. You can do it! We're rooting you on Tanker..
