Very nice.  How did you lift the shell to get the frame out from under it?

After I removed the interior floor I located all the anchors, and ground the heads off with a die grinder. I then used a floor jack with a 24" 2x6 on the jack and lifted the shell a little at a time using non marring chisels to help pry the shell off of each stud sticking up, then used 2 12'pcs of angle iron supported by Jack stands to clear the tires and rolled it out, reversed the procedure going back.To get the shell exactly where I wanted was simple, the shell actually slides and positions well being so light, keep in mind I have it completely gutted except for the shower, all under trailer plumbing has been removed also

Wow...welcome to the club and I admire your ambition....that is quite a restoration you are doing on that trailer.   Once you get her done....I am sure you will have many memorable trips.....great job and safe travels.
