you may want to poke further underneath of your car and make sure its not worse than that . if it is sand it all down and prime and paint and give it a new undercoating .

best of luck in dealing with your rust issues. I'm hoping that's just surface rust.
take off that trim on the bottom of the car. I see rust hiding under it too.

My car has some spots like that (especially on the left rear fender). I just sanded it down to what appeared to be bare metal, then coated the area with rust reformer, and painted over it. It's not perfect, because the metal is blistered and uneven where the rust was, but it'll do until I can afford a professional de-rusting and patch job.

At least you discovered before it is getting worse . I may be wrong but I believe 1993-96 Fleetwoods have better rust protection than their predecessors
