I have a 1973 ECO trailer. I'm trying to remove the benches, all screws are very rusted. I've tried removal kits and drilling out with no luck. Does anyone have any other suggestions.

Grind the screw heads off, then pry the bench up--the screw should remain in the floor and can be turned out with pliers---worked for me!

My best suggestion is to get your hands on a rotary tool example a drimel, use the small cut off wheel and score the center of the screw leaving a notch. Then twist it out with a straight screw driver. Ive used that trick with great sucess. Good luck

Thanks for the suggestions, I ended up going with the dremmel tool. I'm trying to replace all flooring on the trailer. Any experience with removing the shell from the frame?
