All of it as of now. I was planning on tearing it out though I don't want to keep it we do want to replace the floor just wanted to do a shell on replacement of it. Not even sure shell on is possible with the new info and pics you sent
The bathroom will need to come out if you want to replace the floor under it. Even if you don't want it, I'd advise you to take it out carefully and see if you can rehome it to someone else restoring an AS. Those parts are very hard to find.
If you take it all apart so your trailer is bare inside there's no particular reason you have to lift the shell, you can still do the floor replacement with the shell attached though there is not much holding it together at that point. It will still save you the trouble of bracing and lifting the shell though.
Hopefully you can get some more advice from those who have done a whole floor replacement. I have only done a partial, so I did not have to worry about things like the shell being loose or getting out of shape, since only part of it was unattached.
Has anyone cut the belly pan straight across at the axels to make it easier to get out
Yes, you will find that when you go buy replacement material that it is sold in sheets that are not as wide as the trailer, so you will end up installing 4 sheets with seams across half way and down the center.
