1970's single wide kitchen remodel

You know in those 1970's single wides how the kitchen is separated from the living room with a banister and some small poles to create a see threw wall? Can i remove those poles? They are so dated in my updated house. My husband thinks they might be supporting the roof or something, I don't think so. I would like to just take them out and not replace them with anything that way the Kitchen will kind of be opened up to the living room. The banister wall isn't just a wall. Well on one side it is, but on the other side it is the kitchen sink, dish washer, and a cabinet. I don't really think removing the poles would be a problem, but i just wanted to make sure they weren't actually supporting something.

Generally in a single wide mobile the walls between rooms are not load bearing. That means you can tear out the walls you're talking about. However if there is a transition in wall height between rooms it might be load bearing. I've seen people tear out the small bedroom's wall to extend the living room many times. What you have in mind sounds like a good idea.
