New Member with a problem!

I'm hoping someone out there has experienced this problem and has a fix. We have a new Evergreen IGO with a shelf across the wall above the queen mattress connecting the 2 closets. We replaced the mattress with a much thicker one and now we hit our head on the shelf when we get up. There's not enough room between the mattress and the shelf. It's like sleeping with your head in a cave! Very unpleasant! How do I start to take the shelf down? What kind of a mess will it leave on the wall and how did you fix it?

If you could post some pictures it would help us understand and see your problem, and perhaps offer some help.

I've removed plenty. Theyre simple press fit mainly, with wood screws (square drive) holding it to the wall. Most trailers have the wallpaper applied before the furniture, so other than a few holes where the screws used to be, it will just look like a wall.

I'd be careful if there are light fixtures mounted on the underside

Put the screws back in the holes.
Paint heads with matching paint if needed.

Shelves stored someplace

That new mattress must be one thick one to make this big of a change. I wonder how that shelf removal project is coming along.

You were right! We took the moulding from the bottom of the shelves, then pulled down the bottom piece of paneling and then we were able to unscrew where it was attached to the wall. We've got to rewire and secure the lights that were in the shelf and put up a piece of moulding we saved from the shelf over the back wall and we're through! Great improvement! Thanks for your help!
