In days of old (the 1960's and 1970's) this was the known as The Airstream Curse among owners of Boles Aero, Avion, Silver Streak and Streamline trailers:

The case of the killer NT22C is 14" wide. The opening of the cabinet door is 13 1/2" wide. I cursed enough that the designer's grandkids' ears were probably burning. The center post between the cabinet doors is riveted in, and those are DOUBLE-blind rivets... pop rivets in where I need a mirror to see them, and the upper 4 have a 4" deep tray blocking drill access from the back.

At this point, it looks to me like this will require removing the entire lower galley . . . .


And why, right through the 1990's my parents were having to re-assure RV techs that their 28' Silver Streak was not an Airstream. Some wouldn't even show up due to this mistaken identity problem.

Bummer, brother. I do truly hope some piece falls into (or out of) place to make this easier.

Cutting torch or better yet a plasma cutter. Put some wet towles around the unit and have a fire extinquisher near by. A plasma cutter produces a clean cut with not much overspray. I bet you a local body shop would do it for you.

Hmmm... I like the idea of cutting it up somehow, but I do think I'd feel like I was punished for taking the easy way out if the floor or cabinetry got burned. Remember, my cabinetry has that plastic woodgrain on it... it wouldn't take much heat to ruin the way that looks, I'm sure. It was 80 degrees here yesterday, it sure is easy to pretend it's never going to get cold again!
