02 Tradewinds on Spartan - radiator replacement

I have a leak in my radiator due to rocks. Iím looking at the radiator and CAC. It looks like all the mounting bolts for both are at the back and accessible.
Does anyone have DIRECT experience with a replacement in this exact combination? If so, am I correct in my idea I can remove the radiator from the rear rather than under the motorhome?
Iím trying to determine the scope of this project. If I have to lift the motorhome, or do welding, itís definitely beyond the scope I can tackle.

This is a 2002 Tradewinds 7370 on a Spartan chassis. Caterpillar 3126 engine, 330 HP.

I looked in the forums for 3 hours without finding this exact combo.

Is your rad a side mount or rear mount? Which Spartan chassis are you riding on? The LE is likely rear mount but someone has your answers once they know exactly what you own. Good luck and lets us know how it goes.
