Oh my gosh! Just came on to post pics of my little reno, and now am second guessing the wisdom of that. I am pretty proud of my little egg, given my knowledge base to start with, but this is GORGEOUS!

The Finished Project ... (for this year)

I cannot quite say it is finished but all that is left are some very minor finishing touch-ups that were either not completed or areas that took on some wear.

Here are the interior pictures

I read somewhere that a beaded curtain will keep bugs out, not sure how true it is but I love the way it looks.

Just a work of art!

Question about the Scamp hinges: are they pretty identical to original Boler ones and can be mounted in the same shell/door location or does the location need adjustment for any reason? Thanks!

The Scamp hinges line up to the door holes only, the set-back on the body side is considerably more, plus they use 3 bolts on the body side.

I relocated the hinges completely. I placed the upper hinge 1/3 of the way down the door and the lower hinge 2/3 down. With the new hinge location the door fully opens without the edge hitting the belly band, it lays flat against it.
The 2 small rubber bumpers protect the door and molding

I just read (and watched) the whole thing from start to finish. I have only one question.... how does your wife feel about sister wives??

In seriousness, you really rocked this overhaul; I'm totally impressed! :

Just arrived home from my first trip in the "completed" Boler, 3300 km.
Had a fantastic time traveling down the Oregon coast to the Oregon Gathering, over 100 fiberglass trailers there, some great units and made lots of new life long friends.

The trailer performed perfectly, everything worked and didn't have any problems. Unfortunately on this trip I traveled solo (Joan couldn't join me) which gave me time to look at lots of trailers, and even more dangerous, gave me time to think.... There are a few new modifications in the works albeit minor. I guess Joan has lost me again for a while



Next trip, the Manitoba Bolerama

Great thread, lots of helpful information. Where did you locate the window moulding, and does this profile have a particular name?

Ian, you were a wonderful addition to the gathering. Your Boler was one of my most sought after goals to witness and I was indeed satisfied. From your seminars to your pleasant demeanor, everyone enjoyed you.

Safe travels.

This molding is called "one piece locking window gasket", a main supplier is TrimLoc. You will need a profile that fits 1/8" edge and 3/16"-1/4" glass.
Here is an example" LK987 - One-Piece Locking Gaskets - Trim-Lok "

Thank you Dave.
Everyone was fantastic, I really enjoyed the drive, the Oregon Gathering and our chats. I was also impressed with the work you had done on your Compact 1 ... now I want to see your Compact II.

Happy Camping
