Interesting how things evolved .....well my top cabinets were reattached , by the last owner by drilling out the rivets and then installing stainless 3/16 bolts (outside head was flat low profile) with lock nuts inside. That was an interesting move on his part. Did a good job, certainly is solid but when it comes to the closet , as it is attached to the top and bottom half of the trailer and from what I understand , the boiler does move and twist here and there I was concerned about this method of bolts. But this method of fibreglassing the units to the trailer do sound like a better method. As of yet I am sitting on the fence for a few days. Sure appreciate your input. You and this forum is such a great way to get team building and support. Thank you , Dust-in.
