Question need help with redoing window treatments

Just bought our first RV and I want to redo the wood cornice frames around the windows on our "new" 2004 Fleetwood Discovery. Has anyone taken these off and put new fabric on them? I really dislike the current fabric but I can't figure out how to take them off the wall so I can redo them. Help!

Welcome live today to irv2.
Most frames are held to wall with a "L" braket one screw into wall and one into the frame. Easiest to remove screw into frame bottom and top of frame.
If not brakets may have long screws through frame into wall most I have seen have the "L" braket. The fabric will be stapled on frame you can do the same or glue on new material.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

The big problem is the upper cabinets were installed over the top of the valances by about 2 inches. My husband said he'll have to remove the cabinet in order to take down the valance and he didn't seem real "excited" about doing that!!

Try removing the Window Shades ! Once they are Out of the way the Screws that hold the Valance should be accessible. You will need a very Long Screwdriver to extract those screws. The Lower part of the Valance will be attached to the Wall with an "L" Bracket.
Once out they are easy enough to recover with a fabric of Your choice!
They are not attached to the Overhanging Cupboards, or weren't on Our Old Southwind nor My son's Pace arrow.

I have an '05 Bounder with the same window treatment. I removed them and put in wood Phoenician blinds and curtains.

There were four L brackets on top and two on each side. I used a cordless drill with a 6" Phillips bit to remove the four on top. That gave me enough room/leverage to get behind the cabinet. I did all four windows on the drivers side.
