Today's progress. Got the belly pan off from the back bumper to just past the front wheels. So far all the cross members except the rear most one. 2 out riggers in need of repair or replacement. One rear corner out rigger is missing, and the other one came off with the bananna wrap ( looks like it only had about 1/2 inch of weld). The main frame rails look good except for one spot on each side behind the rear wheels. Across the back of the trailer, the bathroom floor stops about an inch from the back wall. Looks like the water was getting in around the door in the bumper. So far it looks a little better than I had feared. Then again I am only 1/2 way done opening the bottom.

Thanks for posting the pics. I'll be opening up our belly pan in the next couple weeks and expect to find about the same thing. Is your frame cracked behind the rear axles or rusted?

Yep! The main frame rail (roadside) was rusted through directly behind the rear axle. Reinforced with a couple of pieces of 3" channel. The curbside wasn't to bad. Got a few bad out riggers(new ones on the way from Inland RV). The rest of the frame and crossmembers are in good shape.
