Brownrecluse, it looks like we're both around the same point in our boler
renos. Although i dont have the sagging, I have areas that could use some reinforcement, and also my trailer needs some work.
I think it all depends on how much work your planning on doing, or want to do.
If its just the floor that needs repair i wouldn't bother removing the tub from the trailer.
In my opinion,
- I would remove all the bolts/screws holding the tub down.
- Jack up the back side of the tub, and put it on jack stands somewhere behind the tires
, using some wood to distribute the weight
over the fiberglass.
- Cut your strips of wood, either glue them in place or put in a couple screws to hold them in place and start glassing.
- Only problem you might have is working around the frame rails, and laying on your back while you do all the work.
You might decide to take an extra step and remove the tub from the trailer, in which case you wouldn't have to work around the frame rails and you would also get a chance to inspect the frame of your trailer. This takes some thinking and planning on shimmying the trailer out from underneath the Boler
Last but not least you have the Robert Johans way, and the way I will be using to reinforce my Boler
When everything is already gutted and windows are out, it just makes sense to do it this way. You get to work in the flat position and it just gives you a nice clean repair with not much hassel.
