To answer your question, yes it can easily be removed. Pull off the surrounding trim, unscrew a couple of brackets, unplug the unit and pull it out of it cabinet.

It does free up a lot of storage space.

My Television is on an electric lift and goes down behind the fireplace. Removing the fireplace wouldn't give me much space at all. It's only about 6 inches deep. Besides, we love it and use the heck out of it!

You need a dedicated 15 amp circuit. They use @ 12 amps

Here's the fireplace that I installed 2 weeks ago. Used to be a cabinet. Wife loves it and it heats up the trailer well!

Fireplace really takes up only a small amount of space and really comes in handy in cool evenings/mornings. An yes, it does give the interior a nice look when it's on.

Thought the same and argued the wife when we bought our 5'r. Now I love it. Nice to take the chill off in the cooler days without running the furnace. For winter camping it gets used all the time. Give it a try. If you don't like it pull it and keep it somewhere. Just a few screws and add a door with hinges and done.
