How thick is the plywood above the wardrobe in a 21

I was wondering if anyone can tell me how thick (or thin) the plywood is above the wardrobe closet in a newer Escape 21. We did not get the built-in microwave when we ordered our trailer. We did get the oven. Mary wanted the extra cabinet space above the wardrobe closet to use as a pantry when we are dry camping, which is most of the time. We purchased a small microwave that fits into the cabinet for when we have hook-ups. I am trying to figure out a way to secure the microwave in place for the times we want to travel with it, but also be able to remove it without it being a huge hassle. Part of the equation is knowing how thick the plywood is.

The edge is thick...not sure about the surface. This is what I did...but we donít remove it.

I attached feet made from aluminum angle to the bottom of the microwave and then used velcro to attach it to the microwave cabinet bottom. Sorry I didn't take pics as it seemed simple enough - the sketch below show where I put the angle.
