Removing the interior

I am starting the redo of a Ď63 Trade Wind, it needs a floor, so everything has to come out. Where do I start? How do I take out the cabinets, beds, water holding tank, etc. It is my intention to reuse the present interior and not completely redo the interior. I have looked at the cabinets and there is plastic channel around all of them, at the wall. The channel is held in place by rivets. I assume I drill the rivets out. What am I going to find, after the rivets are out? Where do I start removing cabinets, in the front of the trailer and work to the back, or back to front? I have read, threads that reference replacing the floor and leaving the shell on, Iíve also read removing the shell, which is the better choice?

Inside the trailer, at the front, above the front window is a cabinet that is part of the ceiling panel. There does not appear to be a seam. This cabinet is integrated into the front panel. Have you seen it before? How do I get it out?

I will also have to replace the axel, when do I want to do that?
