1973 Tradewind Holding tank and frame question considering wet bath

I will be starting a thread on my 1973 Tradewind renovation but wanted to ask a couple of questions to be more focused before that.

I have currently removed the galley and gaucho as well as the bath area down to the black tank. It was a shame since my interior was in such good shape but as so many others have, I found soft spots in floor. The worst in bath closet by battery box under univolt.

Is the frame the same throughout the 70ís years on the Tradewind?

Can I rearrange mine 1973 is in the location of the 1972? That is on street side corner were the current shower is.

If so I am contemplating doing a wet bath so the space for the shower is not so constricted.

Also does anyone have a service manual plumbing diagram for a post 1973 Tradewind,rear bath, that they could post so I can see how the factory installed there puny grey tanks starting in 1974. Something like this that I have over the 27í and up. Shown below. It will help me figure out grey tank arrangement.

I also uploaded some before and so far pictures.

Many thanks in advance.
