Cabinet Posts

Those posts that run from the countertop to the upper cabinet in my UHaul have been removed. Do those play a role in structural stability? Do I need to replace them?

Yes they are the structural support for the roof.

I have seen the ugly ones replaced with nice stuff such as metal stair blasters cut to size and fit in. Also have seen 1 guy do a wood carving to fit in there.

Trailers like Scamp and Bolers need those posts to support the roof. However, the UHauls didn't have that type of support system needed. Because of the double hull construction, the ceiling support is molded into the inner hull. Check out the interior photo from original UHaul brochure - No posts needed.
You can go to the gallery and look through various UH interior shots also.

Got any interior photos for us to ?

Well, there aren't any -- so I thought I should ask. There are holes drilled in the bottom of the overhead cabinet right where posts would have been -- but considering some of the other things PO2 did, they could have been for anything. I just wasn't sure.

I think I should be appointed Minister of Having Fun, because that's the cause I've dedicated my retirement to.
