So was the frame all rotted and patchwork, or did you just decide it was time for an upgrade? I'm glad that I have a shop to work in looking at your snow..

It was patched and had been jackknifed a bit so was bent, old and ugly. I got the new one installed and it looks strong and new! I also got all the old rivet holes fiberglassed over.

I was happy to find today that my boler has leaf springs. The axle and leaf springs look in nice shape and look to be original. This one was built in peace river Alberta. Tomorrow promises to be a nice day so I think some bondo will be in order!

Interesting no 13ft Boler ever came from the factory with leaf springs. In fact torsion ride smoother, cost less and require minimal welding in most cases. We also have a Peace River Boler by Glassfab. Since yours has leaf springs I would assume some other fabricating has been done. We did a complete ground resto on our 72 about a year ago. It was super fun of your handy and you will have something to be proud of when its done.

Good to know. I will inspect closer tomorrow. I like the ride height it has now. I am happy it has leaf springs and I don't have to change out an axle. I am going to change the bearings tho. Bomni I checked out your build. Very nice work! Looks fantastic. I need to rewire tomorrow. I bought a 7 wire plug and need to figure what goes where. Off to do some searching!

I see in others pics a pipe going from the counter to the upper cabinet between the sink and stove. What is it for, mine is missing.

The pipe is for the 110V wiring to the florescent light and the 12V wires to the 2 lights on the ends of the upper cabinets. There should also be an iron support on the left side of the kitchen cabinet connected to the upper cabinet, this supports the upper cabinet and the roof structure.

Thanks Ian very helpful info! I see a slight sag in the roof where that iron support should be.

Support for the roof is critical, on the left side the support comes from the metal counter support mentioned. On the right side the support is the closet and there is a short square metal tube aligned with the door hinges (Supports is on each side of the door).
