Treating Subfloor

Hello everyone, newbie here.

I have a '72 Overlander Airstream. I took up the floor knowing there was once a mice infestation. I currently have the back piece of subfloor out, revealing the frame underneath. I would appreciate any advice on how you treated you subfloor to avoid wood rot, along with having a long lasting subfloor. In addition, does anyone have suggestions on the fixing up the frame? It is in good shape, besides rusting. Should I get some rust remover and paint it to avoid future, extensive rusting?

I would appreciate any feedback and suggestions!

can you get some pictures of the frame&floor??
for my subfloor replacement i used ACX 5/8 plywood & treated it with penetrating epoxy.
my frame was mostly rotted away so that was mostly replaced as well. the floor will long outlast me.
good luck with your project!
