Removing a mobile home wall.


I have an early 80's doublewide mobile home. My kitchen, living and dining room are for the most part one big open space except for this divider wall that separates the kitchen and living room. It appears to be just an accent/divider wall. The wall is only about 6' long and is located right where the two sides are joined together. However the wall is only on the kitchen side, not the living room side. I want to remove this wall entirely. Because it is only on one side I would assume that it is not load bearing. What are your thoughts?

I think you need someone on site to look this over, anyone here would just be guessing.
Got at least a picture?

Are those just 1X studs? No double top plate?

Are you referring to the pieces of wood at the top? Those are just decorative pieces of trim that cover where the two sides join together. There was a thin trim over those but my husband tore it all down and filled the seam with foam filler awhile back because the gap was large. I think the home either settled or was not pieced together well.
