I think it would be relatively easy. The framing and plywood top could be disassembled, and serve as components to build a dinette almost identical to the rear. The only things to move are the electrical 120V and 12V outlets. They could rotate, and go on the face of the dinette bench. There is a junction box in the driver's side front corner area for the trailer umbilical, but I believe it is behind where the front of a bench would be.
Photos: build photo showing the front framing; final photo showing the rear dinette which would be the model for the front.
Cushions for the front seats and backs would become the bed, just like the rear dinette does.
