Shell off

I've would like some advice as to whether or not I need to take the shell off or can repair my floor. I've read a lot about this and figured I'd post some pictures and ask for advice. The back of the frame is rusted out and floor gone.

Thanks Click image for larger version

I think a lot of times people do shell off jobs when they don't need to, but at first blush I think your trailer probably needs to go that direction.

You are going to want to look at that whole frame.
