Loose basement door hinges - access to body side bolts?

97 Holiday Rambler Imperial 40 WDS.

Some of the basement door hinges are loose. There appears to be a strip of trim covering the upper (body side) hinge fasteners. My assumption was the trim is attached via two sided trim tape. However, if this is the case, it would seem you would have to risk damaging the paint on both the trim and the body to remove it and gain access to the bolts.

Some previous owner (or dealer?) has done what appears to be a "rigged" fix, by simply running some screws THROUGH the trim:



I would really like to avoid this when trying to deal with other loose hinges. Does anyone here have any experience with loose basement door hinges? and if so, would you mind sharing how you dealt with it?

Thanks!

Scott, are you sure that isn't one long continuous teardrop shaped common rail that all the doors hang upon? The opposing rails are shaped similarly to question marks. The Monaco's (Caymans) of that era used this type of design - if you needed to remove a door in the middle you had to slide all the others off to the front or rear first.

What a horrible design. That is exactly what I have.
