Repair of rotted floor area

our 1964 overlander has a rotted area below the jealosee window. We don't know wether to repair the area below the window or replace the floor from the galley forward. If we replace this section of flooring do we have to remove the belly pan. The remaining floor is parkay square tiles and we have replacments for the new section. We would really like to camp this summer as we just purchased our air stream last october and have yey to camp in it. As you can tell we are newbes at air streaming. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance.

The guy I bought my trailer from just laid a thin piece of steel plate over the hole in the floor and went camping.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Dynastream to answer your question if you want to replace the entire shhet of the floor yes you will need to remove the belly pan as well as the lower panels of the interior walls. The floor is bolted down to the frame inside the walls and to get at the bolts you need access inside the walls and under the belly. If the area is not too large a patch can be done for the floor.
