How to remove a bunk bed from a travel trailer?

by Sara Saspa

Hello! We just bought a Fleetwood Mallard and in the rear is a full bed then above it is a cabnet and a bunk bed. We are really new at this so honestly I have no idea what I'm doing. Id like to remove the top bunk bed so when we sleep one of us is not trapped in there lol. If we remove it is water damage more likely? Im terrified I'll ruin it if I start unscrewing things? help! You'd think I'd find this information online but I'm so un-handy it's not funny. Thanks!

    Call Fleetwood, they would be able to tell you if removing the bunk would cause problems and how to safely remove it. That would probably be the best way to do it. If there is a reputable RV dealer that sells Fleetwood near you, that is an option, too.

      They would be the ones that would know the structural integrity better than anyone if you remove or add anything to the travel trailer. A lot of what is there also keeps the weight balance of the trailer good for when you are moving. We have a 43 foot 5th wheel trailer and I know we have to be careful if we ever add or subtract weight to keep the balance when we are towing it.

    I agree with the suggestion of checking with a company that sells and maintains/services RV's. They'll have a better idea than anyone of how the bunk is integrated into the RV and how to remove it without causing other issues.
