Any idea what this is, and if it can be removed? There isn't one on the door side. It's an extra lump on the bulkhead that gets in the way of where I need to do things.

Looks like an attachment for a seat belt but can’t really make it out from the photo. Looks like a job for mr disc cutter as it doesn’t appear to be structural.

I looked more closely at it today as i had a little time...
It sort of matches to one on the other side, which holds the door frame, so i assume its there for when the door is on the other side.
I'm going to cut out the annoying protruding lump, anyways, to make it more flush with the wall line. There is plenty more support material inside it.

Ah! I think that is normal. I would, won't cut it, nothing is damn straight in the van.

Isn't the same as mine?
Yes. That's it. It's the bulge that is the issue. From what i can work out, it serves no purpose as the main strengthening bar is behind it. But it forces a wall/roof line about 5 cm away from where it could be, just for that piece

i would cut it of with a grinder if it’s the metal that is causing u a problem, let me know how it’s in your way and a couple of pics not so close
It's in the way, because if I make all the wall allow for it, it wastes about 2" of gap behind it, when it's only that tiny bit that protrudes. It's going to be in the top of my shower/loo cubicle, so I can work around it if necessary. But it's annoying me :D
