Plywood floor change.

quite simple, I bought a 25ft Tradewind 1969 and I thought it was a good unit, but the floor was uneven....since then Ive gutted the interior to find more and more wood decay and previous horrid repairs. My question is this, would it be easier to demate the structure, jack it up a few feet and roll the trailer chassis out from under it to redeck it and then re-install?

I know it sounds drastic, but the unit was in such poor interior shape but with a wonderful skin that I want to give the interior a more modern look. I feel that trying to slide new pieces in will only leave it with gaps and problems for the future.

Any advice would be appreciated Zach

There's some good threads by others doing what you're considering. Search the forum under frame repair and/or floor repair. Some show the skin off with complete redo.
