Hi Toastie, I'm going to guess no. I've never seen one removed without removing the rest of the interior first. If it's any consolation, removing the rest of the interior isn't really that difficult. I pulled out my interior but left the bathroom alone when I did my floor repair. That bathroom 'shell' appears to go all the way around, even behind the closets, at least in my 68. I don't think it could be removed without pulling those out first.

It may be able to be removed without gutting the entire interior, but not in one piece. They were typically built from the rear forward so the fiberglass shower went in first and the walls and rest of furniture built around it. If the shower is in good shape, it would be a shame to have to break it up in a million pieces to remove it when somebody may want it for their trailer...

The furniture in these old tralers comes out really easy...we took both of ours apart (different times) in less than a weekend each.
