Sleeping sideways in a van doesn't provide for a lot of leg room. Over the 2+ years we've had our Roadtrek, I've manage to kick out the side panel. I was afraid I'd have to take it to an autobody shop to get fixed, but it turned out to be fairly easy. The hard part was taking out the RV bed, frame, and wall linings.
The side panel sticks out about an inch
I got it pushed back in, then with the help of a couple of clamps, was able to put in some sheet metal screws
