This is incredible! I love the clear lines and the wonderful wood work. It's a piece of art. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you Robert for the frame draft. We recently purchased a 72 Boler that was in need of an axle replacement. As it turns out, we discovered that there were weak spots in our frame and a couple of old patch jobs done. I will use your drawing as a guide for a new frame. Thanks again and keep up the great work. Marc

Hi Robert,

Question. So it looks like you recessed mounted the Wave 3 the heater slightly into the cabinet. I am in the process of installing one myself. According to the directioning the Wave 3 cannot be recess mounted because it is a fire hazard. Did you just build a custom mount for it and then recess it anyways?

Oh and you already know the trailer looks awesome. I love seeing pictures of naked Scamps. I helps me figure out what's going on with my own.

Appreciate the uniqueness of the lay out. Stepping outside the box. Worked very well. Awesome work. Yes, I'm a tad jealous.

Hello Kevin,

I build a box/frame with 1.5" aluminum angle stock and "float" the body of the heater within it, keeping an 1/8" gap all around. The backside of this box is completely open. In front, the protective grill and the "flame" element extend beyond the box/frame (and my cabinetry) so that nothing impedes the physics of the radiant heat. The box/frame also helps deflects near field heat from adversely affecting the surrounding woodwork.

Brilliant restoration! Love moving the kitchen up front, so much more workable counter tops, storage and a larger bed. Totally awesome job. Lucky for you I'm not near Bend, or I would bother you a lot with my 77's repairs!

Someday I want our new/old '85 UHaul to look like your Boler.

robert

I want to also fill in my furnace vent hole. What was your procedure and materials used.

Thanks from a fellow boler owner.
