Default '93 WB Bedroom Remodel

Has anyone removed the headboard and what's behind it to expose the roadside window in a '93 WB? What is behind the plywood? Are any modifications required to make the window functional once you get to it? Any pics?
Thanks,
Terry

this is michele and this is my first post. Terry removed the wall to reveal the window for our trip to washinghton. AWESOME!!! We prefer fresh air so the window let's us have cross air and LOT'S of light in the bedroom. You don't really need to cut the whole panel out just enough to let the air in; so you can center your window cutting on the two mirrors and get lots of airflow and light. Still need to do finish work but love it. Thanks Terry

Sorry I can't help you Terry. My old '93 had no headboard and the window was accessible.

Don't know what is behind there. I do enjoy that side being blocked off, though, for multiple reasons. It will be interesting to find out what's behind there if you do remove the headboard.

Do you have a mirror on the wall where the headboard is located? For us, we like having the mirror there as it makes the room look a little larger and it makes for more insulation on that wall.

Neither one of us likes AC much so we want the cross ventilation. Cut a small test hole (not the same 1/8" walls like some RV's) and found insulation pulled tight across the back of the ply. Will set the circular saw to depth and cut a little short of the final opening size in the next day or so and go from there.
Will update with some pics when we get there (after I read John's post on sizing pics again).

Terry & Michele

The headboard blocks our street side bedroom window as well. Frankly, I like it because it keeps up warm in the winter and cool in the summer. there have been times however when I too would have liked the cross ventilation. I'll be interested to see how it comes out for you.
