Iam reframing the sides of my travel trailer. Do I need to level the trailer before framing the sides?

I would, just to make the build easier. Using a level to make sure studs/walls are properly squared up and at 90• to the floor. Door framing etc. Yes you could use a 24” carpenter’s square and measure, but also using a level (horizontally and vertically will give easy double checks for square and vertical

x2. I think it will be a lot easier and quicker working on a level platform.

If you want everything square when you are done, it will make it 100 times easier.

Yes. It'll be much simpler to get everything plumb and square if you're working with a level platform.

Yes unless you want to use a carpenters speed square and build everything at a 45 degree angle [emoticon]
