I am thinking about swapping my Boler frame with a different, more heavy duty frame.

I want to add a bike carrier to the back and a full size truck tool box to the front of my set up. I know with the current Boler frame, this is not advised, so I will not attempt it.

I recently acquired a late 60's aluminum tent trailer in disrepair. It didn't cost me anything, so I took it.

The frame, axel, rimes/tires are all in great condition and is a much heavier and a bit longer of a frame that would easily accommodate the additions I want.

How hard would it be to lift the Boler body off the existing frame and drop it on this other frame?

I'm sure there are people out there that have done this.

What issues can I expect with this mod?

I am aware that this will increase the weight of my set up. I will always be using a 1/2 ton tow it.
