"I had them do something that I think is unique with my 2552.  I mostly travel alone with my dogs, occasionally my husband comes along.  I asked why I needed the wall at the foot of the driver's side bed.  "It holds the by-fold door."  I really don't need privacy from my dogs OR my husband so the wall (and door) were removed.  The shirt closet on the driver's side was also removed, replaced by an extension of the overhead cabinets.  The other shirt closet was made into a pantry.  (I have the dinette version, thus no upright pantry.)  Anyway, removing that wall has totally opened up the space.  I can also use the bed as a sofa to watch the front TV.  So far it is working great.

Peg....   If possible, would you please post a couple of pictures of your setup with the wall removed?  I've actually thought of asking about this but not sure if it's something they would do. 
             Thanks!!!         RonJ

Sounds interesting. My holding tank macerator switch was next to the steering in my boat... but never encountered any motorcycles out to sea. Lucky them.
The gas stove in my unit has never been lit since with oxygen concentrator in use... open flame was out of the question. No options at the time. I do have a single burner unit plug in induction burner so I can cook if I must. Adding extra outlets has been helpful. Need one up high over counter in bathroom. Under the sink is very awkward and does not accommodate
some things well. Some were not well placed.  SO instructions specifically need to be handed over to get things where they will be useful.
The little shelf units on each side of the bed under the overhead cabinets are very handy...tissues, water, tv plunker, cell phone but I did not get elec plug ins there .. my mistake. Good lu
Elec plug behind passenger seat is useful for many things including the oxygen contrator to be plugged in while on the road and on gen set.

Good luck at the factory. Give them a chance and they are good to work with. If no instant answer let them figure it out and get back to you. They can. Regards. P

Remote Sanicon switches, located within easy reach of the driver,  would be great.  One could empty the tanks while cruising down the highway!   Be aware of any motorcyclists that may be near. 

Cheers  :)(:
