After removing the floor on our 79 Sovereign
, we noticed the frame was rusted badly. The previous owner 'repaired' the situation with a wooden subframe. We removed the back 4 feet or so and had a professional welder build a new frame, along with replacing some outriggers. My question has to do with the height of the frame. Currently, the rear end of the frame and shell are a half an inch or so apart. Should the shell rest on the frame when not on jacks? Or does the strength come when all are tied together? I'd rather have the welder shim the frame properly now before installing the floor and securing all together. All comments welcome!
