Did some Boler come without the supports near the sink?

I ask as I see these 2 Bolers 1986 and 1987, and both of them so not have the roof support near the sink that goes from the counter to the roof.

Please advise

I will fix this when I get to my Laptop.

Lol.

So are they missing the roof support that goes from the counter to the cabinets? Or did some late Boler come without these supports?

Many Bolers I have seen lacked the support. Not sure what years might have had it or not from the various factories that made them.

Based on what we know now about the long-term performance of these thin, flexible shells, it couldn't hurt to add support to one that doesn't have it. I'm not sure the builders had a 50+ year lifespan in mind.

Is it a 13' with fiberglass or plastic cabinets? Have a nice look to them. Clean and crisp.

Our 17' has plywood frame and panels in cabinet design; the two wrought iron support sides are definitely doing some work in roof strength. Left is decretive support, right is also a tee towel rack and support.

Supports

I have had just about every year of manufactured Bolers and a few of them never had the metal counter /roof supports.

Roof support

I have repaired two boler (72 and 73) and the only thing there is a pipe from the top of counter to the bottom of the cupboard where the wiring goes for the lights,

Support

Please replace or add that iron support. Paint it white so it isn`t so ugly. The support is nice to have! Boler put it there for a reason!

This sounds like sound advice. If I do get this RV, I will make it so.

Luxus, you can do this simple test. Measure the height from the top of the counter to the bottom of the cabinet close to front edge of the cabinet. Do this on both ends of the counter and compare the measurements. If they are not the same, you probably will want to prop the roof up so they are the same and install the support. You can also search for different threads where other owners used other things besides the stock support. I know one created wooden supports and another used a hollow rod they found at a home improvement store(they run wires in it).

Support is important except.............

Regarding that ugly twisted Boler upper cabinet support. I believe it was designed and built for obvious support reasons because the manufacturer was avoiding liability problems when that white stuff begins to fall. Yes there are Bolers from the 70's and eighties that don't have them but I'm quite sure the supports have been removed by the owners. Most locations in Canada and many places in norther U.S. have heavy snow loads and if you don't winter your little "Cream Puff" in a garage, without that support, you're looking for trouble. If you're little guy lives in the southern parts of the country where rain is the only deterrent, get rid of that piece of ugly scrap.
