Thanks for the compliment. It's a fun project but way more work than I initially thought. I read about your damaged trailer. That's too bad. Hope it all works out.

That's why I'm cruising all the forums. Looking for ideas for the rebuild. I just wish the insurance guy would come and look at it so I can get started.
Did you use special paints on the painted surfaces inside? I was looking at the mildew resistant specialty paints....

I haven't painted anything inside yet. It'll be next spring by the time I get out a paint brush. Lots of good info here about what type of paints to use. I'll follow the advice of others here that have already gone down that road.

Sorry, that should have read "will you use". I think I need more coffee .
Now that I see what water can do to the wood I think a water proof coating of some kind is in my future.

A couple of quick shots of the nearly complete upper cabinets. Just need to get some handles and build a small filler piece for the corner above the bed.

I also wired a charge wire in my TV. I ran it from the battery back to the 7 pin connector. Tested ok which is good. I'm waiting for the fridge which will hopefully arrive this week and a battery separator. The separator is supposed to not allow power to go to the trailer if the TV battery is not fully charged. It's also supposed to isolate the TV battery from the trailer when parked with the ignition off to prevent any draw from the trailer. I'm not sure how it works but I looked at the instructions online and the installation seems pretty straight forward. Learning as we go.

Davis thanks for the compliment. The upper cabinets are not as tall as the originals, but obviously much wider. I think it makes the interior look larger and provides a lot more storage. My wife is 5'11" so a little more head room is appreciated.

Andrew, the trim in between the cabinets and the ceiling was purchased here.

I would imagine most RV parts places could get you a roll.

Finished making the filler piece for the corner of the upper cabinet above the bed. I still have to come up with something to go between the counter and the upper cabinet similar to the original support brace. I'm off work Friday so I'll poke around the Home Depot and see what I can find.

The cushions for the couch should be done tomorrow and I'll pick them up.

I got an update on my 12 volt fridge that was on back order. It should be here by Wednesday. I'm leaving for our trip on Saturday morning. Doesn't leave a lot of time to install, test, and build the cabinet face frame. That's cutting it close.

Picked up my new cushions for the front bench. I had them sewn up by the same place that made the mattress. They turned out pretty good. I would have liked the foam a bit thicker and the edge trim a different colour but I got a deal because he used some stuff he had lying around. Also my wife found the fabric for $17. So all in it was $117 for foam fabric and labour.

1982 Boler remodel, rebuild, restore

The guy who did the cushions makes mattresses for a living so the piping is actually mattress piping which is why it's a bit bigger than I would have liked. His equipment is all mattress specific so small scale upholstery jobs are not his thing. But the price was right and I'm not complaining. I built the support between the kitchen counter and the upper cabinets today. I used a couple of metal staircase spindles from the Home Depot, cut and modified them. I'll post a pic tomorrow. Gotta head to work soon.

Quick pic of the finished support for the upper cabinet. I mounted it in the same place as the original design. Forgive the not do great photography. I take these with my iPad and less than ideal lighting.
