Newbie structure question

My Airstream is a 1974 Trade wind. I plan to use this as an office/school.
My question - Are the partition walls between bedroom and kitchen structural?
I've seen pictures of inside skins removed and 2 by 4 supporting sides.
I do not plan to remove inside skins permanently for my office/school.
I would like a clean look from living area to bathroom. I do not expect to add much
Weight to sides or ceiling. I hope a picture is included.
Such a wealth of information from this forum. Thanks.

The inside and outer skins, along with the frame and floor are structural. The cabinets and partitions are just tack-ons.

Watch this video, they're actually lifting a 345 Airstream motorhome body from front and rear 'pick-up' points.
