Door frame removal
New to the site. Just strarted a gut and rebuild of a 1976 24 ft Argosy trailer and am stumped at stripping the interior wall panels. It seems as thoght it all hinges on removing the door frame. All of the panels appear to trace back to overlap one way or the other to that point.
Any help?

Welcome to the Airforums Cosmiccurl!

Sounds like your working on a big project. We love pictures...
The panels on the interior can be weird shapes and sizes and sharp! Its nothing like whats outside.
Interior wall removal is alot of labor. Lots of rivets and removal of cabinents etc..

Tell us more about your project

We look forward to more posts

Cheers.. Vinnie

The interior panels are flexible enough so that you can remove one that is under another. Just remove a few rivets on the top panel closest to the seam and all the rivets on the panel under it.

Removing the door is a matter of drilling out the numerous rivets on the outside of the door frame and removing the screws at the bottom. The interior has an aluminum trim that surrounds the door on the inside. The door itself comes out when the rivets are drilled out (and screws removed). The interior aluminum trim covers the gap between the door and the interior panels and any fastening that is on the interior trim in that area. I would try gently prying the aluminum trim to see if it isn't a friction fit holding it there. You might call Inland RV to double check that this is the way to remove the door and to get the aluminum trim off on the inside.
