Thanks for the creative suggestions and motivation guys! That's what i'm talking about - keeping the good side original and getting creative with the mess of the other side I'll be in a parking lot, possibly curbside, but right next to a really cute outdoor deck/seating area under a big angel oak which is all lit up at night. Time to sell some pie! After some serious hard work, of course.

Has anyone approached a floor fix in a way similar to this man's? (Where he didn't remove the shell?) Floor Replacement - Vintage Airstream

That is an excellent article you referenced. Pretty much the guide for my floor and frame repairs. Working well so far.

Does anybody know of a RV repair shop in Texas who can replace the side panels of my 2007 25' International? I am in the Dallas Fort Worth Area.

You could check with P&S Trailer Service in Helena Ohio. We have had work done there and so have several Ontario Unit members. Even if you want to do the work yourself, they have always been helpful both in person and over the phone. They might be able to help source replacement panels...They do a lot of restoration on Vintage Units

I never thought I'd say this... but a food trailer might be the perfect application for this particular trailer.
