I've been where you are. And it's not a great place.
Here's what needs to happen:
Start opening up the wall and the adjacent floor. This is a destructive process, but do not despair. Campers are not complicated.
Your first task is to demo the wall and floor until you have found dry wood. The problem with those early "superlite" trailers is the floor system is a manufactured composite by laminating Luan glued to styrofoam and glued to another sheet of Luan. The vinyl flooring and the waterproof membrane that was applied to the exterior (facing the pavement) act as water barriers. As you found out: water gets in, but not out of the floor.
Here's the kicker; most of those units of that style flooring have no floor joists. You need to build some joists to support the new floor and wall you are going to have to build.
It can be done, and at $95 per hour the dealer will likely charge several thousand dollars.
Technically the trailer is totaled. But a handy DIY person can certainly save it.
It just takes time and a back yard where you can put 'er up on blocks for a while.
You can do this. Good luck
