Compartment floor corrosion

The floors in my shoreline and septic compartments are literally rusting away. It is a 2003 Minnie Winnie and I am looking for a reasonable way to replace these floors. Does anyone have a similar experience and clever fix?

I had the same problem. I went to a heat and air conditoner supplier and got some heavy gauge galvanized sheat metal. My compartments had an angle iron perimeter that the old floor was secured to. I removed as much of the obstacles in the compartment as I could to make things a little easier. I lightly sanded the galvanized side that would be facing up and washed it with vinegar. I then coated it with the roll-on bed liner. I put 3 coats of the bed liner on. Both comparment had to have holes cut to put the hoses through and shore cord. I bent the front and back edges up about an inch. I secured the metal with self tapping screws. Almost forgot I also wire brushed all the angle iron and painted it with rust inhibter before putting in the new floor Ran a bead of caulk around before setting in the new floor.
