2014 Sport 22fb - Dinette removal/remodel

I would like to replace the dinette with a small dresser in the space between the window and light switch and then remove the left divider wall as well and install a desk in that area. Something to match the current decor. Anyone know a company that can do things like this?

I am not a structural engineer, but as a look at the bed/dining/kitchen dividing walls in my 2015 22FB, I can't help but think they are there to provide some form of cross bracing rigidity to the front half of the trailer while in motion. I would confirm with the factory before permanently removing them.

Any Cabinet maker can do this... I am entertaining removing a dinette as well, just have to contend with the wheel well . I has nothing to do with the structural integrity of the trailer ..

I actually ended up deciding to go much further in depth with my remodel. I am taking out the dividers from the kitchen to the bed area, removing the bed and removing the dinette. I am going to turn the entire front end into a mobile office with dressers under the windows on each side. The countertop will be continuous from the kitchen all the way around the front end. In place of the dinette I am having a custom futon built, in place, so that a full size bed and seating are available but will allow for better floor space overall. Since the dinette would never be used for its purpose and was horrible as an office desk in general; and the bed took up an unnecessary amount of space I feel like this will be a great set up for my use. I will update with how it goes. Its already in the shop and being done. I hope to have it back by the end of January.

Pics of the plans

While I haven't had a chance to go by and take a look yet, they do have the demo done in the dinette and bed area right now.

Verified with him earlier today what the floor plan will be. These are not the final confirmed drawings I am attaching. I requested one change which he will be making to the built in futon. He set it up as a 48" x 75" (3/4 Bed). I wanted to make it out to a full size at 54" cuz I am a pretty big guy and I am not really worried about isle space at all as the bed will be going in and out everyday anyways. (6" difference in floor space wouldn't be enough for me to be sliding through comfortably). He confirmed they can make that happen, and without adding additional cushion by simply plugging in the back cushion bolster in that extra space. Should work well. So I will have a full size bed and won't have to worry about losing sleeping space or hunting down custom fit sheets for a 3/4 bed. Here's the plans.

Thanks for posting. Do you use your 22' solo or with a partner/family?

We're just taking delivery of our 2017 and will clearly keep it as-is for a while, but if we enjoy it, some kind of remodel will certainly be in our future. The difficulty is that we're a family of four in a pretty small trailer.

You are brave my friend. I'm solo in this trailer for work. I couldn't handle more than myself for very long in that trailer.
