Depends on where the damage is, how big, and how bad.

Photos will help gauge the work required.
There are lots of posts about floor replacement. Google airstream floor repair replacement, or look at some of the full monte threads.

Can be simple cut out old piece, splice in new, or as severe as removing the shell to do it.

Most solutions involve sistering new wood with the addition of cleats to bridge when necessary.

Landing half on a frame is almost always done but a cleat that is glued and screwed can do a lot too.

Digging out under the wall allows the new part to insert there to support the wall. The new part would need to be slotted to allow it to slide in around the bolts.

Wow! That looks nasty! It looks like you should be able to do some sistering though. You'll have to remove the stuff on top of the spot, plus a few inches to get to some good wood. Then you cut a patch to match the shape of the hole. Or backwards for ease, see below. On the old floor around the perimeter, cut some strips of wood that will project a few inches under the old floor and stick out a few inches for the new floor to sit on. Use some liquid nails to glue and screw the strips up from the bottom around the hole. Once that sets a little you can put some liquid nails on the piece that projects from under the old floor for the new floor to sit on, then screw the new flor down.
A easy way to get the patch and hole to match is to get a good idea of how the patch will be and then make it first. Then trace it onto the old floor and cut that shape out.
Your tanks are going to be under there, so watch the depth of your cut. A circular saw with the depth set just a little shy of going all the way through, or oscillating tool would work well in this case.
