RE: How to remove wall cabinets in a Forest River F32SP?

Yeah you probably will there was a series from a couple removing some white cabinets, 1st video was worthless but the 3rd was actually pretty good. Using a heat gut to loosen the glue, but the access to the screw heads is key. If you want I can move this read to the "Do It Yourself Modifications and Upgrades (DIY)" forum, or after today you're ok to post another thread there as you might some more help from other DIYers. That would be fine to move it if it will get more traffic. I did find that video you were talking about and watched the series of videos tonight. I think I started watching one of the videos in the past, but got tired of the yapping and stopped watching. Guess I should have kept watching to get to the useful parts. I think it was easy for them since they were just ripping everything out and replacing. A little more concerning to me since I'm hoping to salvage the cabinets and not damage. I wouldn't mind changing the cabinets to a desired setup, but I have more than just these ones in the cargo area. I'd be worried about trying to match existing cabinets.

RE: How to remove wall cabinets in a Forest River F32SP?

There are some videos you can find where people take the cabinets out of their RV that might help you. Most cabinets are held in place by a combination of liquid nails and a small 3/4" square strip that the cabinet can be glued and screwed into. I'd dig deeper to see if you can find them, they are most likely to be along the top under the counter and at bottom rear. I've tried watching many videos of RV remodels, but the ones I've seen all of the cabinet mounting/removal was in plain sight. So haven't had much luck with them. I'll do some more digging. I'm guessing I'll have to remove some panels/trim to expose the mounting screws.

RE: How to remove wall cabinets in a Forest River F32SP?

The cabinets are not "box built" like in a house. They are built to the wall. the back is the side wall of the RV. They are stapled together and very hard to remove and salvage.They come apart in pieces. Better off to just remove and have some built to your specs. I was considering building new cabinets to my specs, but I was hoping to salvage these just in case I don't. I figure besides staples there has to me somewhere that they scew into the walls for added support to hold that weight. I will keep looking for mounting points. I was just wondering if I have to remove trim pieces to expose them. In my friend's trailer they are in plain sight. In mine I cannot see any mounting to the wall anywhere. Just trying to prevent damaging anything while trying to figure out how to remove since I know quality of material in RV's is not all that great.

How to remove wall cabinets in a Forest River F32SP?

I have a 2008 Forest River Sierra Sport F32SP 5th wheel toy hauler. The spacing between my cabinets leaves very little room for my side-x-side vehicle. To the point it stresses me out and I have to try and take extra measures to try and brace my UTV from shifting sideways and playing bumper car with the cabinets. I decided I want to remove at least one set of cabinets on the side wall so I can trim a few inches off of the back of the cabinet to allow more spacing, however, I can't see any exposed screws that actually mount it to the wall. In a friend's trailer, the mounting screws are obvious. In mine they are nowhere to be found. Are they hidden behind trim or other panels? Is that common? I'm hoping they don't screw in from the outside which would make it near impossible to gain access too. Has anybody ever dealt with this before, and know where to access? I want to salvage the cabinets. So I don't want to damage the cabinets or walls in attempting to remove them. I sent Forest River an email a while back but received no response. Maybe I'll have to try and call them. Not sure if this is the right or best location for this question, but any help would be appreciated.
