After removing stuff in front of trailer

This is when I was working on taking out the couch, water tank and little tables on each side of couch. Also took out the fold up table and cabinet thing under the outside window.

You're tub/sink looks like my '64 safari. If so its a major PAIN....remove and reinstall the worst part of the whole can of worms!!!! The sink top was riveted to the fiberglass tub surround from the back. I had to drill out the rivets that held the entire unit to the hull. Remove drains, lines and vents. Slid the unit forward then disassemble the individual components. You're in for a real treat when you try to get your hands up through the back to do the water lines. Looks like you maybe caught one break. Was the fiberglass deck cut to install a free standing toilet? If so that should help a bit. Once you've delt with this part everything else is easy!

Thanks for the warning! I'll start on the rivets. And yes, I think it was cut for the toilet. It looks like home made plywood sides with carpet along the sides of the stool. Icky Thanks for the reply...I'll see how it goes...
