Very curious to hear from owners about the feasibility of this plan and any challenges we may run in to.
As discussed earlier in this thread I removed the top bunk but left the bottom in place. It was much more difficult than I hoped it would be, primarily because I wanted to be able to re-install it later. The bed frame I removed is made from aluminum square tubing with a top and bottom cover. There are screws that come from the outside in that must have been installed before the paneling on the outside of the bunk (in the angled corner). I had to use a cutting tool to get the frame removed from that corner. The rest of the top bunk is supported underneath by a 90 degree bracket that runs the length of the bed. Needless to say, it's very solid. Once the bunk is removed you'll see that the moulding isn't really that cleanly done. I ran a 3 inch wide molding strip around the inside of the bunk area to cover the marks/holes left by the missing bunk.
Since I use both mattresses on the bottom bed now, the window at the bottom is pretty hard to use (the crank handle is behind the mattress). I also moved one of the tv shelves up a bit since it interfered with the bottom bed. If I had to do it over, I'd consider ordering it from the factory that way (if possible to order these anymore).
Overall, I'm happy with the result. My mother in law really likes her bunk and since she's almost 90 it really is easy for her to get out of the bed and into the bathroom. Once I get the motorhome back from the dealer (final round of waranty repairs), I'll take some pictures to show you the frame (removed) and the new bunk area.
