1986 Boler 13' Re-Makeover

We had a chance to make a few upgrades before heading out for the family vacation. New cabinet doors, back splash, porthole, Corian counter, induction stove, under-mounted original Boler sink, instant hot and cold running water, on demand 12v water pump, led lighting, bunk beds, microwave, electric heater, and shelves to name a few.

Hope you like it.

In the near future I will be mounting a Propex LP2000 heater inder the couch for winter boondocking.

I think there are no pictures. I guess you are boondocking and it's dark.

Instant hot water with 20amp switch. Other 20amp switch for exterior AC power outlet and all off a 20amp GFI. The tri-switch runs 12v outlets throughout the interior. Water can be pulled either from our onbaord tank or city hook up.

Installed a new tongue box as well as some goodies in it.

The regulator is mounted to the outside of the box. The battery, inverter, GFI, and MPPT Solar charger installed inside. The box is vented top to bottom with more under the tank.

A few upgrades? I would say so! It's gorgeous!

You have great taste in surfaces and colors.

The mechanicals are so we'll thought out and cleanly routed they are a work of art in themselves.

Thanks, I am a bit OCD about wiring. Once I started it turned into a complete rewire of the camper. Switching out the original converter for the big one necessitated most of the work.
I also wanted to be sure all A.C. lines were protected by GFIs as we have small kids.

Great upgrades, are the bunk bed upgrades mostly to keep the kids from rolling out? It doesn't look like they add any extra weight capacity?

I did need up the bunk by replacing the plywood with 3/4" and beefing up the hinges but the rails are their to keep the kids from rolling out. They even needed a ladder to get to the too bunk so I built one that matches.

I've laid on the top bunk and took a nap so I know it can hold an adults weight now.

The previous plywood was warped 1/4" scrap.
