Major Floor prob. not so bad..

Hi there folks,
Ok so I cleaned up the mess and took a look around to see what I'm really getting into. What I found was not as bad as i thought. Granted there are some parts of the frame that have been weakend by the rust but it seems that the worst of it is toward the rear of the AS, the front looks to be fine except over the steps but that's a quick repair. So I'm hauling it to my siter house for driveway repair time. I have been looking around at all the floor repair posting and you guys have made it look easy and made it look insanely hard. I think I'm taking the in between road, the only thing I'm worried about is not being able to find the channel for over the plywood. I saw it on a web-site but it's like 6 weeks to deliver...I'll just keep looking and in the meantime get to work Thanks to everyone for helping out i really apreciate are some more pics for yah

Hi Augier

I would be very careful moving the trailer anywhere with the floor removed. The floor is an integral part of the monocoque construction. I know this to be true on my 75 Tradewind as I have some of the floor out right now. Your 60's model may differ...
