Cross Section of Walls to frame?

Anybody have a good detail showing how the Trailer attaches to the frame? I am trying to get my head around my 1961 30ft project that has absolutly every problem but floor rot, go figure! Seems like everybody get floor rot.
Does the shell part sit on top of the plywodd then on the frame? But I see guys fixing floors without removing the shells?

I really like the trailer- seems to have lots of character but needs bunch of work. It will no doubt be a "retomod" when completed.

Plywood sits on the frame ,connecting to it,then the channel attaches on plywood,on my 63 the channel attached thru the floor to each out rigger. People who are replacing floor with frame on,are sliding under the channel so it can be secured down. Dave
