Hello, We have a 2005 Dutch Star with a padded headboard and a mirror behind. Has anyone changed theirs? Does the mirror extend below the headboard? I would like to remove the headboard- but not necessarily the mirror as it adds light and space. Would appreciate any suggestions. Nannette McDonald

Welcome to the site!
I haven't changed an RV headboard, but I would recommend only posting the same question once. If you post the same question in multiple places, it will be difficult for you and everyone else to keep track of the answers. Maybe a moderator can eliminate the extra topics and just have one topic in the appropriate place.

There are a couple of places to get Newmar specific help, one is https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/NEWMAROWNERS/info another is on iRV2.com under the Newmar section and there is also this one https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Newmar-dp-owners/info

The headboard on my DS is screwed to the wall and I had to find the screws in order to remove it.  The mirror extended to just below the top of the headboard and the headboard screws were just below the edge of the mirror an inch or so.

Hope this helps,
