We live in a single wide 3 bedroom, 2 bath trailer. My daughter has the smallest bedroom and in an effort to give her a little more playing room I want to knock out a pain of her wall to open her closet up. I've already taken everything off and all that's left is the wood frame. I don't believe it's a load bearing wall and I don't believe the portion I want to remove will do any harm, I just want to be sure before I actually do it.

Board/portion of wall I want to take out in red. I'll most likely continue the top portion all the way across.

The wall that the bookbag is hung on is shared with the living room.

Double up the stud on the right and do a double bottom header and you should be fine.
