Modify 2015 Shasta Airflyte 16' to sleep 4

Anyone try to modify a 16' model to truly sleep 4 people? I was thinking of relocating the stove, microwave and range hood to the other side of the sink (above the AC), removing the remaining cabinetry on the left of the sink, and installing a strong, color-matched, birch plywood headboard and 2 permanent bunks (one below and one just above the side window). I realize that would leave no kitchen counter, but you always have the table for that. The other option would be to just junk the stove/range hood in favor of cooking outside.

The main worries for me are:

1. Making a secure connection to the end wall of the trailer for the foot of the upper bunk bed.
2. Finishing the newly exposed wall behind the removed cabinetry (upper and lower) in a way that looks factory finished.
3. Ending up with bunks that are either too short, too narrow, or both.

Knowing how cheap these things are built, the things that are attached to the walls, add to the stability of the walls. Removing these might make these campers even more flimsy.
