Default Headboard fixings?

Hi

Can anyone tell me how the headboards are fixed to walls in older caravans. I would like to remove mine so I can get a new bed which has a headboard attached and would like to do this rather than put the bed in front of it.
Thanks in advance

Sue

Ours was well and truly glued on but as we had started pulling it off we continued. lol It peeled some of the wallpaper off with it but it's behind the headboard so not the end of the world. DH found some headboard fixings on the net for a few pence and we fitted it back with them. The benefit is that if I want to re-cover it again it'll be so easy!

Hi again, just remember, to recover anything must be in fire retardant fabric, (not wishing to state the obvious, but we have to share safe advice).
Don't forget some pics please! (in the gallery)

Ps, I've sent P&L a PM for you

Try tapping it upwards as some of the headboards have slip over brackets ours did on our Arizona

Ours was screwed through from the outside no way of getting it off except sliding a hacksaw blade down and sawing them off. I just forced the new material behind it.

In this post Parkandleisure mentions Atlas, maybe this will help? Please be careful though!

Try using the search button with 'headboards' typed and 'posts' clicked Lots of us have removed them, they vary alot, maybe by reading all the posts you might come up with an answer! If you can't remove them, there are ways of recovering without taking them off as a last resort

In the meantime, I've just tweeted Atlas for you.
