Sorry it took me so long to get back to the Forum.
I went ahead and removed the sofa (5 feet) and one of the dinette seats and the table with it's posts. The other dinette seat had electical built in and what looked like a speaker box, so I left that one alone.
Also found the bolts to be easy enuf to remove, as with some light tapping, they just fell out when the slideout was out. Also, there were 2 bolts I couldn't remove because of their location. I will secure them with a nut and cut them off. I also planned to tap in a wood dowel into to bolt openings.
The bolts don't hold any of the furniture, just the tubing inside that secures the seatbelts for the passengers.
Now the inside looks a bit like a "gutted" room. i have bot 2 modern, leather recliners with footstools and they are wonderfully comfortable, and moveable to any position. i plan to put in a dropleaf table and 2 small chairs to complete the dinig area. It's comfortable for what I wanted, but not very appealing for decorating purposes. I saved the pieces I took out, so that they could be returned if necessary.
Has anyone taken out the entertainment center over the cab? Since I removed the only extra sleeping places, I thought I might remodel the cabover and put a bunk back up there, with a TV attached to the side. The cabinets are so deep that I can't reach back into them.
