Since you have a lot of damage, it sounds like, you need a detailed assessment of the damage and formal bids for the repair - and don't be surprised, if a large portion of the unit (as opposed to just a few square feet below each unit) if the repair gets in to the ballpark value of the trailer itself, especially if an older unit. If you mean just a spot a foot or two in dimension on the floor, and a streak down the wall a foot or two wide, then each of those might typically (assuming you are not particular about a real good match with the existing wallpaper or panelling if that is your interior finish), a few hundred to $500 range per spot. Note this would be for a functional repair - if you want the repair to basically "vanish" entire wall sections and entire room floors will have to be at least refinished after any subfloor and framing repairs, to give consistent appearance, which would typically run into at least the $1000-2000 per room range in a trailer, and potentially much more. Because trailers with this type of major damage are typically pretty old, full repair like that is rare - either the repair is done patchwork or the trailer is sold as-is or for scrap and a new one bought and installed..

If the water did a lot of subfloor and wall damage over a goodly portion of the trailer (assuming you mean a typical 60-80 foot long unit), then into the thousands would not be unusual.

Bear in mind there may be some damage to in-wall or in-floor utilities and subfloor framing too, so a general contractor rather than a carpenter or handyman type is the better bet, to be able to repair whatever is found once the floors and walls are opened up.

Obviously, getting proper drain pans and drain tubing to a proper drainage location should be part of the repair, to prevent a repeat of this problem.

Remodeling - Mobile and Manufactured Homes (or something real close to that) is the Search the List category to find well-rated and reviewed vendors to bid and do this work.
