Toilet Leaking at base

Anyone ever had trouble with their toilet leaking at the base..seems to happen when flushing. Its just a slow leak. Our trailer is a 2013 x17z. Looks like there is a couple mounting bolts similar to a household toilet. Was thinking maybe I could just pull the toilet out to investigate.

Those are mounting bolts They could be loose or your seal needs to be replaced.
Very easy to make any repairs

Or there could be a crack in the toilet itself.

I would do as bedroc46 said and smoker bill. You may also have some floor damage that needs attention and the only way to know is remove and inspect the toilet. If the floor is wet let it dry and maybe treat it with some Petrifier Wood Hardener. It may also be just a loose connection. Pretty easy job. Good luck

Before you remove the toilet, purchase a new flange gasket (seal). Once the toilet is removed the existing flange gasket's "re-use" effectiveness becomes compromised.
