My coach has the TV over the driver's head(ye olde head knocker!) It's
a CRT type 19" GE. The cabinet is big and projects too far into the
drivers space, IMO. Someone gave me an idea about reducing the depth
of this cabinet and putting an LCD flat-pannel or similar TV in there.
How hard is the cabinet to remove(2000 Diplomat 38D). Is it designed
to be easily reinstalled once it's removed. Would I be in for any
surprises like the head liner stopping at the edges of the existing
cabinet?

I have a friend with your same head banging problem. The cabinets are held together with wood block strips screwed into walls another cabinets. When you remove TV you will see them. You may only have to remove TV cab portion of cabinets cut down and remount the wood strips. They may only be stapled into wood. Cut down rear of cabinet. The new TV-LCD most have spk's on side for stereo effect so be sure you can mount TV in enough space next to wall on left of cabinet. Have fun and save that head.

I have no idea of your front cabinet layout, however, perhaps you would entertain the following:
Since your are installing a flat panel, is there anyway it can be mounted near/at the centerline. This would greatly inhance the stereo effect.
