Load bearing walls

Helo,

I appreciate any help on this matter i have never attempted any thing like this but want to try. And also with his job we travel quite a bit thats why im so concerned about not weakening any walls

I don't think any internal partition is a load bearing wall, except maybe the wall separating the down/upstairs on a 5th wheel.

Additionally, interior walls that run perpendicular to the street side or curb side walls provide strength and support to keep the shell of the trailer square and true. Unlike a utility trailer which is completely hollow, the framing of the average travel trailer does not have the bracing necessary to keep the shell from twisting or racking left or right. If you completely remove an interior wall that runs all the way from street side to curb side, consider adding some bracing or a partial wall to restore that strength.
