The first contention would only be true if those furniture items were "stressed" items, meaning, they are rigidly affixed to, and provide structural support to portions of the trailer frame. Somehow, I doubt a bunk or dinette would perform those functions, although I have not seen your configuration.
The second contention, I just don't accept. Given that the entire assortment of kitchen appliances are all installed on the same wall in our 5ver, and a few light-weight furniture items are on the other side, I simply don't think these things are "balanced" to that degree of accuracy.
My $ .02, FWIW.
Thanks for your input, I didn't think I could put it off balance, but it did make me think!

So you need to be careful, If it is bolted in with a few flimsy brackets (corner braces type thing. and capable of being set aside, Go ahead and remove it. If it is strongly bolted, nailed, glued,, might not be a good idea.
Now the dinette.. If you have one, is never the kind of thing you can not remove.. It is an "option" in fact.
thanks, went in and took a good look, there is a long piece of wood attached to the wall of the trailer (very well attached I might say) for the top bunk, I am thinking it might be in tight since weight might be a concern ( some kids are heavy) I do not have to remove it, just the bed part, but the front support post (horizontal) butts into the closet and I do think I can remove this and the bed base without any problem, I may just leave the rear horizontal alone, I am sure I can use it as a backing for a shelf or something, just it case.... a little more storage of any sort is always welcome...
I am grateful for your thoughts.
