Boler Roof Air Conditioner? Plus some other questions!

Hello World.
Well....I bought a boler around 6 years ago.
I used it as is for a couple of years, and for the past two it's been sitting....and I've been so busy with work.

Now that I want to take it out again, and start using it, I want to make some improvements.

Questions:
Does anyone know of a place near Toronto that can help me do some repairs and upgrades?

Can I mount a roof air conditioner onto a 74 boler? Is the roof strong enough to hold it? Is the opening hatch 14x14? I have it parked at another site, or I'd just go out and check it.

Thanks so much!

Dapple, Not knowing your trailer nor the interior workings of a Boler I am gonna take a wild guess and say no, your roof won't be able to support a roof air at this point. I believe you would have to put supports in. That being said, I am not an expert about roof support so hopefully someone who is can give you suggestions. Just didn't want you to get the wrong impression from my fellow forum members <_<! Do watch your post for some great suggestions and ideas!

Hi Robin,
Thanks so much for the helpful reply. I was thinking the same thing, as I read a few other who have similar trailers say that their roofs wouldn't support it, unless it was a year that was factory issued with a roof unit.
Boo to that, as it's a pretty easy way to fit one....if only it could take the weight. Guess I'll have to keep looking around for other ideas.

Thanks again.
