1979 boler 1300, Closet Cabinet Removal

Hello, I am currently removing all the cabinets from my new to me 79' boler 1300. its been sitting for about 30 years with more then one leaking window so there is a lot of mold to clean up. The closet cabinet has what looks to be larger staples holding it to the shell. I'm trying to find out if its just staples holding it of if there is any sort of glue adhesive between the it and the shell before I start trying to remove it.

Any insight would be appreciated!

Thanks, Brian

Why spoil the adventure... Pull them out and find out. I'm guessing there's no adhesive there.

Just remember the cabinets also support the roof! Hopefully you won’t have snowfall before you finish? Or maybe the trailer is under cover…

Also, since you’re taking them out, this is a perfect time to fiberglass or epoxy wooden cleats to the interior of the shell, to which you can screw the cabinets when you reinstall them.

In this way you can avoid using the rivets through the shell and those holes can be sealed over. Much nicer☺️
