Anyone Remove the Front Overhead Cabinets?

I'd like to remove the front overhead cabinets and rebuild them to move the TV from over the driver to the center of the coach. Has anyone every removed those cabinets? How are they attached to the coach?

Dennis ,

My tv was already in the center but I removed that center portion when
I installed a new flat screen so I could rebuild the tv cabinet .
Mine was attached to the adjoining cabinets and to an overhead steel frame .
Nothing was glued together , it was all held together with pocket screws
( can't remember exact name for them ) .
My center cabinet was a real head knocker so I raised the bottom profile and
moved the front edge back a few inches , turned out very well .

I had an Endeavor before with the tv like yours and always wanted to
move the tv but never did .
It looks like quite an undertaking but doable .
Bear in mind there will be an imprint on the ceiling where your tv is now .

This would be a perfect time to add insulation to the fiberglass .

Why not call one of the rv salvage places , they might sell you the cabinets .
They might even let you come and remove them .
Good reason to take a trip .

Joe, it looks like they were able to take out the center cabinet without moving the side cabinets?

Not the best picture, but I'd like to split the two cabinets on the right and place a cabinet in the middle and mount the TV to it. It would be much shallower than the original CRT TV cabinet so I don't think I'll hit my head on the TV.

That's correct. He did not remove the side cabinets.

Looks like you could get a sore neck watching that TV way up there as well as lumps from banging your head on it! Any way to relocate it to a lower location? I saw someone had moved his to behind the opposing couch with a pop-up system.

Up is okay for us, usually by the time we watch the TV, we're both reclined on the couch! The reason I want to move it is the slide out wall makes it a little more difficult to watch from the white couch than the J lounge when the slide out is in.

Thanks for this topic. I have been looking at removing my old TV cabinet so I can move
my flat screen TV up higher an more forward. If I got everything down I could insulate the front. That was a great job you did Joe.

has anyone moved a TV to the wall above the dinette table? I dont have any pictures but my tv is small and above the passenger side seat. id like to flip the script and put a bigger tv above the table. currently that wall holds a small clock and thats it. its the wall that the bathroom is on the other side of. Right now I dont use the tv at all but am looking to get a portable dish set up to use it. the location for the tv currently stinks because the size of tv would have to be small even if i updated the tv to something made in this century.

I just changed the 32" TV over the passenger side with a 40". The cabinet had to be modified it is now shorter and slightly longer. New one looks an exact match for the older one. Plus no hitting my head.
I didn't do the work but it looked like a metal rib everything was tied into.
