I'm guessing it is riveted on like mine.

Nope, not hard at all. You are only riveting through the outer shell. I used butyl tape under the rail, and stuck it down. Then, I drilled through the outer shell only and put in the rivets. The inerior shell is not even touched. I also sealed the top of the rivets with a dollop of sealant (not sylicone) and ran a bead of the same material along the top edge of rail and the trailer. The hardest hole to drill was the first one, getting past that "first hole in the shell" feeling. After that, I was a riveting demon!
