Removing components from the 26U

So there are a couple of components on the 26U that I'd like to remove, but don't know if it's possible. The cabinet in the bathroom, and that drawer unit under the TV in the bedroom.

The cabinet in the bathroom looks easy enough, but the drawer thing has a switch or plug or something on it. I want them both gone totally. Is this possible? Any ideas?

So no bites yet. Rats. Should I perhaps post this question in a different forum on this board? I only put it in this section because AFIAK the components were specific to the 26U. Any advice?

Anyone? Anyone?

Probably not enough 26U owners yet and an even smaller subset of those that have done much mods...

I have no knowledge here - just didn't want you to be alone

I agree w/SteveSueMac, not enough owners of that model yet to answer your question. We're taking delivery of our 26U this Friday. I am curious, though, what are you doing with that space you plan to free up?

The bathroom cabinet seems pointless. I'd rather just have a shelf there, if anything. As for that thing in the corner of the bedroom, I'd rather have the open space. Hopefully whatever that switch thing is on there can be moved or deleted.

Have you looked inside the cabinets for screws?
I know everything is installed through the door, so I'd bet those cabinets were separate at one time from the wall.

Remember things bounce a lot so open shelves are not a good idea.

I have removed the bathroom cabinet because the middle shelf was sloping toward the door and every time we would open the door, everything on that shelf would fall out. It's held in with screws but I don't remember what the corner looks like when removed. You will have some screw holes. I had two that were visible that previously held in the sloped shelf. I installed a couple of rivets to fill the holes. I think I posted pictures.

I believe 'the switch thingy' is your bedroom overhead light control(s). If/when you remove the cabinet, just relocate the power switch assy. I don't know you skill level (sorry). It doesn't appear to be too difficult...

Like Mollysdad wrote, look inside the cabinet for attachment points to the floor and walls. Typically pieces of angle stock or 'L' brackets...

Awesome!!!

Thanks for the update. I'll have to give those components a long hard look the next time I go to the dealership to "reconnect".

Hello, and welcome to the crazy club of people who have decided to live full time in our Airstreams. We looked at the 26U, but ended up with a27fb. Is the thing in the corner dresser a USB plug or a switch. If it's just a plug you might be able to mount it in the hole in the skin if it's not to big. If it's a switch you might be able to do that as well, but that wouldn't be thee most convenient spot to have a switch. We move into our AS April 1st. It's a big adjustment on space. I just hope a get a sliver of closet space once my wife gets her close in

All Airstream cabinets are screwed into place. Look inside for the screws...they might be covered with those little white cover plugs.

Remove the doors and countertop / shelves before removing the cabinets...makes things lighter and easier to work with.

Be aware of any wires or plugs mounted to cabinets...these will need to be relocated.

We have the 26U twins so I don't have that corner cabinet your wanting to remove that's why I didn't post earlier...but all the cabinets are mounted the same so the above should work.
