Has anyone had to remove the cabinets above the driver and passenger seats? How do they attach?

Welcome to the forum.
Iím not familiar with your situation but usually the cabinets are held on by screws going through the framework and into the wall. Open the doors and look for screws in the frame.

We had some changes made to our Tour's interior, and some of the cabinets on the left wall had to be removed first. The screws that secured them to the wall also went through some kind of metal backing behind the wall. I was very impressed with how well those cabinets were attached. I assume that our front cabinets were attached in the same manner, but I never actually looked.

I think it matters if they're going back in.  When I've done home remodels the way I take stuff out that isn't going back in is usually pretty direct.  Mr. Cabinet I'd like to introduce you to my friend Mr. Sawzall.

The little bit I've messed around in my RV, "cabinet" is a bit of a misnomer.  More like a frame with trim, a door, and maybe a panel on one side.  I would start with taking all the doors off to make it lighter and I suspect using pocket screws or under button covers you'll find what's holding them up.
