cabinet removal?

We don't much care for RV short queen mattresses and took the full queen out of our last camper and had the seller put the miserable Keystone sourced mattress in the one we sold. Our current mattress is about 14-15" thick and if you wake up in a hurry without thinking and sit up, you bash your head on the cabinets that run from side to side along the front of the camper. We also don't use these cabinets. Has anyone any idea how to remove them? I suspect the wall behind will either have glue / staples (or nails) or both and if you have an idea what is left behind after cabinet removal sharing that would be nice. Like I said, we don't store anything in those things since they are a pain to get to and have lots of other storage.

im pretty sure when you open the cabinet doors you’ll see the screws holding the cabinet in on the framing.

The screws for the front face with the doors should be pretty obvious with the doors open, as previously stated. There are probably some that go into the ceiling, walls, and the bottom of the cabinet. You will probably have to remove the paneling from the bottom of the cabinet where the light is to access the screws that fasten the shelf/floor of the cabinet to the walls. And you will have to figure out how to terminate the 12V wiring for the light. The rest will be cosmetic work to repair all the holes in the walls and ceiling. You might want to check with someone who knows whether or not the cabinet is designed to add to the structurally rigidity of the trailer, or if it is just provided for additional storage.

Some inside cabinets are secured to the walls before the front cap and the sidewalls are installed. On that type installation, the screws are driven in from the outside and are not visible or removable from inside the trailer. You'll need to do some investigating to determine if your cabinets are installed from the inside or the outside.
