What comes First?

We are making over a 29' 1992 Excella twin bed. My question is this: Is it better to remove the belly pan and banana wrap prior to removing the floor? In my mind the belly pan and banana wrap should come off first, but I have no experience to base this on.

Here's where we are:
We've removed the interior partition walls, skin and insulation. We've also removed the furnace, above floor ABS drain lines and probably today the Quest supply lines and the water heater. Looking to do the next right thing.

Don't remove the bellypan unless there is a reason to do so. Don't remove the floor unless it is rotted, or there is another good reason to do so. Are you replacing or adding tanks? Do you have rear end separation? Is there some other reason you want to both remove the belly and pull up the subfloor?

If there are good reasons to remove both the belly and the floor, I'd probably choose to remove the belly first, since that might make it a little bit easier to get the floor out.
