Missing Frame Member?

Lesson learned: Should have taken more pictures during the demo phase!

Can anyone who has done this before help out??? Attached is a plan of my '67 Safari trailer frame. I believe it is missing a rear frame member as noted on the drawing. I did not cut off any significant steel from the frame. I believe I need something here to help support the rear of the trailer - (this may be why the floor failed in the first place).

My AS frame is at a welder right now with the shell happily hanging on hoists and ready for a reinstall over a long weekend. Can anyone help????

Yes there should be a crossmember there to support the shell. I am not sure of the details of one that old but there should be a crossmember.
