Deconstruction

I have a 2002 EB350 center aisle configuration. I'm considering a months long trip next summer and need more interior storage space for cameras, laptops, other gear. Street-side rear contains a shower pan with a marine toilet and a bath cabinet, plus the black water tank underneath. Curb-side rear is a small cabinet with the 6-gal water heater. I'm thinking of removing all these items and their wiring and plumbing. I've use the shower maybe four times in eight years, so I guess I wouldn't miss it. And without the shower, the water heater is just dead weight. A small porta potty can replace the marine toilet.

Anyone have any experience removing any of these items? I realize I'll wind up with a couple of holes in the bodywork, but I'm going in tomorrow to get an estimate to patch and repaint.

Re: Deconstruction

I disassembled the shower in my Class C motorhome to make more storage room. I was able to keep all the parts and re-install the shower before I sold it. As far as the water heater, maybe you could remove the heater and seal up the hole in the body with something easy like painted plywood and silicone caulking (from the inside). Then re-install the exterior access grill to hide the patch. If you're clever you may even be able to re-install the water heater later.
