Starting point

This may sound silly, but here it goes... where do I start my interior renovations. The plan is to remove the bathroom and work back to front. (1976 Argosy 20 travel trailer)
Is there a better plan of action?
Please let me know and thanks in advance for the advice!

The interiors were mostly built from the rear forward. To remove the interior you may have to go the opposite and remove from the front to the rear. Some of you stuff may not fit unless cabinetry is out of the way. On our 66, the bathtub would not come out unless all was gutted. Getting it through the door ended up upside down and backwards. That was the only way to get it out. Everything was brought in through the door, so you should be able to take it out through the door. Good luck

And take pictures as you take it apart. It will help as you put things back together, even if you're going with all new things. Trust me.

We took pictures of most things as we removed them, and organized the pictures in a file on the computer. It's not a perfect system, but we can find things with a few minutes search. It did help us to remember when we had to take apart the rear to fix black tank flange that cracked and subsequent floor rot a few weeks ago (hope that never happens to anyone else. Ish)
We also didn't throw components away until we had most of the trailer rebuilt. We were able to reuse some things like the walls for templates. Sink was in good condition so we kept that (one of the few original things still in the trailer). We gave away things we didn't reuse that were still in good condition to others that were going for a more vintage look inside.
