Basement Rust Problems

I have a 98 American dream. I need to replace some of the frame work right in front of the rear tires. Looking for any advice on doing this. I have TIG welders, MIG welders and the skills to re weld the frame work in. I can't really tell how to get to the frame work. Hoping someone else has been there done that.

Well im in the same boat as you on our 97 Bounder. I have looked it over a bit and think if i slowly remove and replace i'll be good. My issue is finding the steel to do the work with. Not many places around here sell what i need. Good luck with the repairs.

If you join the American Coach yahoo group I am pretty sure they have some files and photos of coaches where this rebuild has been done.
