How to remove rear bath floor

Okay, I obviously need to remove and replace the rear bath floor on the sovereign. It appears to go under the side walls. How do I get it out and put a replacement in? How and where is it attached and to what? I just need some kind of an understanding of what I am getting into here. I don't see nails screws or rivets.

I guess it all depends on how much work you want to do. Some of the forum members have done it with the shell on and replaced it in sections, and others have taken the entire shell off to replace it.

to get at the bolts holding the shell down, you will have to remove the lower interior skins and you will see them.

If you go into the forums and look under repairing and replacing floor and or frame, you will find out just how much fun it can be.

I live pretty close. If you have any questions, you can IM me.

good luck,
Mike

Here's my motive... I want to remove the floor rot around where the toilet was and I want to get out the black tank so I can install a household flush toilet. (this AS will not be traveling, it will be a stationary home hooked to a sceptic system) Can I just cut out the plywood above the tank to get it out? How is it the tank attached to the frame? I really don't want to deconstruct the whole backside of this baby.

There are a couple of posts in today's thread "Got Rot Now What" that apply to your situation.
