I lift Boler
bodies off of the frame by
using an automotive lift. Use wood blocks on the lift arms
up to the underside on the strongest ribs underneath the body.
The 4 lift points must be outside of the frame rails.
The biggest challange in getting the body off is
if you are not removing the refrig. The body is held on with
hardened sheet metal screws.
There is one of these located under
the ref. and closet and also a couple of other tight spots.
Cut these with a thin (1/32) abrasive wheel between the frame and body.
You have to jack up the body and work the
wheel into the slight gap. Once you have the body free,
the lift is raised until the frame is cleared and you can
roll the frame out. This could be done by alternating a couple of floor jacks,
but it would take longer. It takes about 3 hours to get the body off.
When reattaching the body to the frame, I use 3/8 U-bolts and seal them up.
This allows a 3' long 1" square steel tube to be added in the dinette
storage wells to strengthen the rear of the trailer.
Now you can add that bike rack and fill up the water tank
without fear of the rear frame sagging.
I have some pictures somewhere but they are in a 35mm camera. Maybe in
a couple of months I'll have them developed and scanned in.
