    I have a few soft spots I want to replace, one near the rear curbside corner, and a couple near the lift system supports. The question I have is this, I thought I read somewhere that the walls do not have to be removed to replace the flooring underneath? Of course, if the rot have spread to the side wall, that's a different story. But is there a method to sliding the new wood under the side wall supports without removing them? Other than a pry bar?

    Thanks

    Since every manufacturer can use different methods to install the floor, could you please supply the make and model of your camper. Thanks

    Well I guess that would help a little.

    The question may have answered itself. I took a sneak peek and discovered that the bottom of the rear wall is rotted. So, off the top of my head, I think the plan will be to remove the back wall, remove sub floor up to the first steel cross member, slide in new sub floor and secure to frame and side walls, and then rebuild and attach rear wall.

    That is a good plan.
