Help with subfloor/painting exterior

Hello! I have a 1982 Scamp that has some bad water damage to the subfloor. After calling around to get quotes on what an RV repair place would charge, I have decided to do it myself. I plan to replace the whole subfloor and would love to get tips and advice from other folks who have experience with this.

Additionally, I am going to paint the exterior. I plan to use marine paint. Do I need to sand the whole trailer down before priming/painting? Please feel free to share your process and what steps you took, tips, etc.

I am a newbie so all advice and tips are welsome.

Thanks in advance!

There are many threads on Scamp floor replacement. I would read other people's stories for tips and ideas.

The same is true on painting. Lots of discussions on painting.
