Front Bunk Removal

I need to do some repair to the front bunk door, has anybody taken one of these off. I looked at it briefly and thought I could just undo the hinge and remove the door by itself. But it looks like the the hole outer frame has to come too. At the bottom covering the hinge is a rubber flap that goes behind the inside frame and the door hinge, so no way to get to the screws. 2006 Shamrock 19 Thanks Michael

Hope it's ok to jump on this thread. I have an 2008 Coyote hybrid. I am going to replace some water damaged wood on one side of the front drop down bunk and have to remove the whole bunk assembly. I too would like to hear from someone who has done this. pics or a vid would be a big help. Thanks...Bill

Since yours is not a FR product, there may be some differences between FR hybrids and KZ hybrids.

I have been thinking about it myself, but the more I look at it, I may rather spend the money and have it done right at a proper repair facility.

Can anyone else comment on how to disconnect the rubber flap? It seems relatively inaccessible.

If you are replacing it, you can just cut it. If not remove the top wood panel on the inside and under it is a 2 x board that gets unscrewed and the rubber is stapled to the wall under it.

Thanks Hornnumb2. Can you provide any advice for removing the top wood panel? It does not seem to be completely accessible for easy removal. I have a 2010 Roo 19.

Not sure if your is the same as mine, it just had some thin strips around the edges that are just stapled down. Then the top board is just some mdf that had swelled some from water and it is just stapled down too. If you can post a pic I will let you know if its the same. When I went back with mine I made the top in 2 pieces so I could use that lost space for storage.

I replaced the front bunk on our previous 2011 Roo 23SS. The rubber flap you are describing was secured inside the front cabinet under the bunk. If you look inside the cabinet, there should be a 1x3 piece of spruce that is screwed to the front wall with a couple of wire ties securing the marker lights. If you remove the wire ties, and then unscrew the 1x3 you will find that the rubber flap is secured under the 1x3 with a few staples. You will need to fold the edges on a 45 when reinstalling the new one to prevent the flap from binding when the bunk door is closed.

I replaced the entire bunk door and hinge, located the cable supports and locks in a matter of a few hours. It is a pretty easy project for someone with basic skills - just take your time and triple check your measurements before drilling for hardware on new door.
