How much of the floor needs to remain to provide enough structural integrity for transport?
I had to tow a short distance with rear bathroom plywood subfloor out and I'll tell you it was a chore to get the shell in place when it came time to replace the plywood and reattach. I've read threads here about bracing the internal shell to retain it's shape but unless that shell is going to come off anyway as part of restoration, expect challenges keeping it all together.
The axle was shot and when you'd hit a bump the shell went airborne.
I looked at a vagabond that's missing a 1/3 of the subfloor and they will have to drop the price to below reasonable value for me to tow or flatbed with missing subfloor.
