Nice work! That floor plan inside is pretty cool, too. Looking forward to more!

It is a 2000 lb Flexi-Ride axle with the trailing arms set at 10 deg up.
The Boler rides just over 1" higher than the original frame sitting on the original worn out Ingersole Rub-R-Ride axle

Yea, from the vertical section, I'd say it is good for about 20,000 pounds.

LOL yup that is what I thought too
Considering I needed a 6" drop in the floor to accomodate the step floorpan and axle location this design was the strongest, lightest and easiest to fabricate. I told my wife that if she ever wants a 32" trailer we have the frame for it.

You are preaching to the chior. I'm crazy too. I told my wife that I was going to replace every screw and rivet ( I thought I was exaggerating...turns out I wasn't)

Thanks, my wife thinks I am crazy. The only part of the Boler which will remain original is the fiberglass shell, everything else will be new or replaced.

The kitchen you ask
After work tonight I cleaned the dust out from the inside, looks like this:





Told you I got carried away when I winterized last fall.


now here is another tease, the first test fit of the cabinets. This is the most difficult cabinet work I have ever done, not a single straight side to work from. Construction of the cabunets is 3/8" and 1/2" baltic birch, open backs were possible to keep weight to a minimum.

I had great plans to get a lot done on the Boler today, but the weather is not cooperating



April weather in Calgary

Ahem! Nice try. You're not fooling me with that picture of the white stuff.

The last pictures you posted were of the Boler in a garage, out of the weather!!

Just because it's out of the weather, doesn't mean it's not cold. We don't have any snow in SLC right now, but it's WAY too cold for me to work in the garage today. I can just imagine what it's like up there in Calgary.
