There is no way to determine if this is a shell off without more pics. From what it looks like you can replace the last 4 ft of plywood. Elevator bolts are expensive. Last 2-3 ft of frame will need replacing or serious beefing up. Interior walls pulled out to put elevator bolts in c channel.

We fixed back end (bathroom) and near the front door floor rot without pulling the shell. We also fixed the rear end separation. Actually, my husband did all that except I helped with the final coats of penetrating epoxy that we put over the entire subfloor when we were done. It sure won't rot now.

There are some pictures and details in our blog (see sig line) but I was out of town when he did most of the work and he was too busy to take pictures.
