Our Deluxe 13' Scamp had the exact same brown wood covered by rat fur as yours, and it easily came out with about 4 screws on the bottom and a few more on the top. It really is worth it to remove it in order to work on the water fill, pump, etc. While you have it out, it would be a great time to cut front openings and cover with cabinet doors.... this really opens up a lot of usable storage with easier access.

Thats a really good Idea, I have been working or Oak partitions on the sink and stove counter tops, like the twisted metal on some, I'm using 1x8 oak and will mount oak spice racks and tile back splash.As soon as that project is done I will tackle the benches.

Russ do you have a photo of them? Would be interested to see how that varies from the factory install. It sure would make it hard to replace water pump and water tank fittings and tail light wires if you can't get the bench out.

When I get a min I will take a picture, the right side or drivers side is easy to get into and work on the converter, its the other side, they put the fresh water holding tank so far back its hard to get your hand in there, and they glued everything together. I have ben picking away at whats left of the fill cover that goes inside the hose.

Oh I know what you mean.... have had to deal with the fresh water tank filler situation myself (trailer is set up the same way). Have also replaced the rear tail lights & added an outside electrical receptacle on the outside wall beside where the water tank sits. Also have had to do some emergency water connection repairs in that hatch. None of which I would have been able to do or do well without removing the bench. Scamp does all the water and electrical connections before they put the benches in place but as suggested normally they also make it simple to take the benches out as well in order to do maintenance.

If someone has made it impossible to remove the bench I think I would be inclined to undo it. Sure as heck you are going to have to fix something in that hatch one day while on the road with limited tools with you.
