Where to find boler upper cabinet rod iron support

My 76 yellow boler is missing the upper cabinet rod iron support that ive seen in other bolers. We used the trailer 20+ times last year and luckily the cabinet never hit the floor. I'd like to get this support in there before i have a failure because our trailer and camping sees mostly rough dirt roads. Does anyone know where i could find a suitable replacement, or could anyone measure their's so that i could make one? Thanks

Michael, that rod can be anything you want. It's turning into quite a decorating/theme for some. If you want the stock, twisted bar... you can get it from Scamp. But, we've seen tiki torches, table legs, polished drift wood and cut down chrome shower curtain rods.... among other things.

Could someone get me a measurement of what it's supposed to be. I know my trailer has sagged a little over time. The evidence is shown by my door hanging low and not lining up right. Thanks for the tip.

Hummm. if you have fiberglass cabinets you may be better off measuring your own trailer. You do not want to use an oversize rod and try to use it to push up the roof from cabinet to cabinet. You may crush the cabinetry. But, that shouldn't stop someone from providing you with a measurement.

Michael, The original is 23 1/2 inches long, it rivets into the flat bottom of the upper cabinet and then it rivets into the flat end of the lower cabinet, that will leave some room for adjustment on the lower mount.

Thanks so much. I just looked at my trailer and i don't see any holes where one would have been mounted before. There is one hole approx. 4 inches above my dinette cushion, and that's it. No problem in drilling new holes though. Thanks for you help.

I do ornamental iron all the time. If you want a reproduction made and don't mind the shipping let me know.

Greg is there a support originally on the left and the right? Are they both the same measurement? I almost lost my upper cabinet because I did not know there were originally supports and the rivets finally gave!

This is an old thread, but I am wondering what supports I am missing. Is there just the rod iron on the end of the counter or is there another support in the middle or other end? And does anyone have pictures. My Boler came without any supports for the upper cabinet. Nor do i see any holes where a support may have been mounted making me think it came without from the factory.
