Casita Seat Rail replacement issue

The OSB curved seat support on both back sides of the egg are partially rotted and flake away. I dont see any rivets at all and what is still attached seems rock solid to the touch.

Does anyone know how they were originally attached to the shell? I am going to have to replace both sides and will take whats left to make templates. If any have replaced theirs what did you use and how? I am thinking 1/2 or maybe 3/8s inch plywood since most of the support will be not at the back but more on the front cross member of each seat section.
Thanks again

I'm confused. Is the rear cabinetry (I think that's what you're asking) NOT fiberglass? I was intially thinking the "wall" supports for an SD.... but I see you have a Liberty...

Do you have any pictures Mike?

Sorry for Delay - Life got in the way. Here is what I was referring to. I will try to find some older threads too from perhaps Robert or others. This the rear seat rail.
Thanks

Ours are still rock solid in our '84. I think the rails are epoxied in from what I can see.

Thanks Aimee. I had major water damage from neglect from a "Longhorn" can you imagine that. Water damage to 90% of the floors. Not sure how they did it but I am replacing all the OSB. Both sides were damaged and are flaking off. There were no rivet or bolt holes external so epoxy or 5200 must have been used. I will tear them down, grind the FG down and re-do them.
Gracias.

We, too, had extensive water damage. We just got done replacing the subfloor with new treated plywood. I cannot wait to start reinstalling the benches and other forms, but we gotta do the re-wiring and re-plumbing first. If I had a magic wand, I would zap myself the necessary skills. I do have a set of photos you can look at if you want. Here's the link:
