Here is a mix of photos that are before and after . I found this boler
on kijiji . it was being offered for free . A very kind old lady gave it to me . It used to belong to her husband . He used it as an observation station , he was an avid astronomer . When i first saw it , it was perched on a round paved hellicopter type pad . I had to remove a motor from the rear and a driveshaft that run down the middle to the front . he also made a large hole in the floor next to the axle
, up through the floor came a 10 " steel pipe . This was the pivot point at which enabled him to rotate the camper electrically to get the best view of the stars . He made an even larger hole in the roof and fashioned a sliding hatch where he put his telescope through . In order for me to take it , the deal was to take everything in it as well . there was an old heavy TV and so much crap that it nearly filled my pickup . I had to enlist two of my friends to help lift it off the pipe . We , i mean the three of us had to lift one side high enough to get it over the pipe . it got so tilted on one wheel that i thought it was surely going to fall
on it's side . I would have had pictures of this but my camera broke that very day .
