Question Floor Problems

I have gutted the front of my 1960 Tradewind and found the floor is pretty bad up front. Definitely water damage. The vents and windows are now tight. It looks like the big leak was at the refrig vent. My question is: Does anyone have any tips or even instructions on replacing the the floor? Do I need to remove the bottom interior skins? Is 1/2 inch plywood ok for a subfloor? Any recommendations for floor finish? Wood, linoleum, or tile?

Any help appreciated,

Hi Dave, Take a look here. Repairing/Replacing Floor &/or Frame. Lots of information for you to read about.

P.S. You wiil find 1/2" floor too thin. 3/4" is closer to what you will need.
