Remove front storage area from 2006 Safari 25 SS

Hi, I canít figure out how to take out this front part of the Safari SS, any hidden bolts that you may know of? I was able to get the dinette and couch sleeper out but not the piece way up front. We're planning on getting re-upholstery quotes in the Sacramento area and taking this out is a must.

Look closely for holes in the fabric. If you find them, push the foam in and look for screw heads.....That's just a guess, but that is how my boat is upholstered. In it, there are rectangular buttons that you can turn 45 degrees and see the hole.

I don't have my 2006 23' here right now, but as I recall there are 3 screws in the bottom right area of that back wall storage compartment. I had to crawl under the L-couch to get to them. I think they are at the top right when you get under there, maybe on a wood cross member. There are also 4 screws across the top, along the back, near the door. The couch arm has 2 screws near the wall. all of these are nestled into the fabric.

BTW, my 23' has an unattached back board that I have never figured out what to do with. It spans the back of the couch, is thin at one long edge and maybe 2" thick on the other long edge. If I put it behind the cushions it slides down behind the bottom cushions and pushes them forwards.

If you have this board, let me know how you position it.

Send me a pic of it and I’ll see if I took one out that matches mine. Thanks for the help. I’ll try to tackle this today.

It's actually visible in the picture I posted with my first post. You can see it with the faded spots along the bottom by the wood. Where it shows in the picture is where it usually sits, pushing out the bottom cushions. Sorry, don't have a picture of it by itself.

Did the same thing for our 2005 Safari, really didn't like the couch/bed and updated to a nice Lambright reclining "love seat", fits fine and we kept the front storage thing. As I recall, we tried to take everything apart with the idea of passing it on, but there were sections we simply had to commando. I think we still have the pieces/parts if anyone wants them.

Can you post some pictures when you have some time?
Is the love seat screwed to the floor or just positioned in the front? Does it move around?

I keep pulling on the tufted buttons to find the screw underneath but they don't seem to give, am I not prying them hard enough?

All of the screws were just wood screws, round heads, painted the same color as the fabric. I'm not sure what you mean by tufted buttons. In your first post I thought it was just the ones underneath the bed that you weren't able to find. Did you locate those per my picture? I can go out to the storage lot and try to take a picture of their location. It would be a day for me to do that. crawl under the bed, in that storage area. On your belly, upper right area, you should see 3 wood screws. Again, this is from memory but I'd be glad to go out there and take some pictures.

Tufted Button! ::shakes fist::

Hi all,

An update, all I needed to do was use more force to get the tufts buttons (large fabric lined buttons) off. Once off you'll see the long wood screws that attach the front panel to small wood blocks. You may need to dig a bit to see the wood screws but they are there.

Now I'm thinking you were referring to the screws on top, by the window. Mine were not covered, just painted brown and easily seen. I had trouble finding the screws under the L-couch. It was interesting to take it all out, not fun, but interesting.

Thanks, nothing like that in mine. That front storage area is original but the L-Couch has been recovered in leather (or pleather). Ours just has the brown capped screws holding everything in. We're 3rd owner so no way of telling what was original.
