basement repair

Hello all. New to the forum but 35 yrs rving. I am looking at taking the jump from a 5ver to a class A. The one I am looking at is a real bargain, I think. There is one problem with it, in which I sure could use your help. It is a 34ft american eagle, 1996 deisel. It was drove in snow and that means salt. So getting to the point, does anyone no how the basement is secured to the undercarriage? Its in exceptional shape other than the basement seems to be dropping. Compartment and doors are in great shape, just seems that it is going to come off. I can weld and fabricate metal, so I am thinking I can fix it. I just dont know alot about them. To fix I need to buy, to buy I need to know what I am getting into. I sure could use a little info from anyone. Thank you much in advance steve

Hello Steve and . We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
I think that coach may be on a Spartan chassis and the basement compartments will be hung off the chassis frame rail. American Revolution Chassis
This may give you an idea as to how it is built but is not the chassis Spartan made in 95-96.
