Bathroom faucet replacement

I am working on a 1964 Airstream Globe trotter 19'. I need to replace the faucets on the bath sink and bath tub. I am having trouble getting access to replace them. This set up is a rear bath with the sink over the tub on the door side of unit. I have taken the screws out of the top of sink counter but it is stll attached at the wall or something I can not find. Please help with any information on how to gain access.

Thank you for your help
Brian

if you can get your hands in under the sink you need a basin wrench to remove and install the faucet without removing the counter top. Worth the expense.

There is no access. This is the problem. I am in the RV service business and have changed many even on Airstreams. This particular Airstream has a unique counter with no access from the inside of unit or storage compartment in rear. No closets or cabinets to gain access. The only way I see is to split the counter top from the bottom fiberglass surround. I am having trouble accomplishing this.

Thanks

I found the hidden screws under the tub in rear compartment. The bottom skirt came right out and off to work I went.

Thanks

Yep ... like that ... our 75 Overlander rear bath wanted new faucets and partial dismantle was necessary.

Just replaced the guts in my Delta faucet bath sink. It was easier than expected with parts from Home Depot.

Glad you found the hidden screws......I went through a similar problem trying to change out the microwave last year. Was almost ready to get the sawzaw and cut everything out till I found those tiny screws.
