IMO, in particularly with Trillium/Boler trailers, anything of F.G which runs from ceiling to floor is structural related design, such as cabinet. Over-head shelves and kitchen/ sink themselves only.. play a role of wall reinforcement. , also structural related, but not that important like the main beam of a car body. So, if one wants to get rid off those (kitchen sink, over-head shelves) he or she should replace them at least by other posts, either wood or F.G and attached to the wall to keep the strength of original design. This way, more rooms will be utilized but the structural strength wouldn't be altered. Just my thought and I could be wrong...

It was the placement so close to the wall that made me wonder- but it could be a part of the support system for the roof and/or wall - just don't think it would support a cabinet very well.

Ah ha!!! That looks like a support!! Opinions?[/QUOTE]

That doesn't seem like much support against the wall. I don't see anything like it in other Casita photos, so I'm not sure its support. It might be some sort of wire-run for power, etc between the top and bottom cabinet?
