It has been a long cold winter here, our Boler is out at a storage lot but tucked in for the cold weather. But this time of years gives me a good excuse to play in my workshop.

I came across this unique table base system that I thought would be the perfect answer for our rather large table which is 34"x34".


Here it is installed on the table. I can easily raise and lower it with one hand.

I found them at Factory RV Surplus
Shipping costs up to Canada were crazy expensive but I just had to have these.

I am designing a quick release system to lock the legs to the floor during travel but release so the table can be moved outside.

OMG do you really want to know???
The company would only ship UPS Standard (I never use UPS because of their outrageous costs) but I had no other choice. I bought 2 of the table platforms, one for my Boler and one for my Casita table shipped in a single box. I did find the manufactured of the table platforms but their price alone on the part was twice the price of where I bought them not including shipping.
Anyway in the end I paid $190 shipping plus an additional $50 importation fee (UPS language for rip off the customer) for 2 units shipped in one box.

Would have been cheaper to drive across the border and pick them up from a friend.

Maybe a bit cheaper dollar wise but it would be a full day drive in winter driving conditions.
  • Calgary to Sweet Grass, Mt is about 3.5 hours (7 hr return trip)
  • Shipping price by seller (they state approx $50 ea, 2 could be $75+)
  • Gas about $100
  • $20 receiving fee by drop-off outlet
  • $10 GST (Canadian Goods & Services tax)
I did think of this option but it is surprising how quickly the costs add up.

Thanks, yes I am very pleased, they work great. You are right, even at $190 each the price is not that bad.

Built the final cabinet for the toilet

I have been busy building the final cabinet which will hold the porta-potty.
The top is just set on in this picture, have to do some trimming and final adjusting against the wall and support beams.



Tip open the lower section to access the porta-potty, a PETT toilet



Toilet pulls out of the sleeve


The toilet sets up very quickly
also showing the drawer w/ ball bearing slide

140mm fans

Hello Ian, Luis here.

Question for you, did you buy these fans around town? (YYC)
I need some serious CFM movers too!

Cheers,
L

Great rig BTW, loots of internal space, feels very light and open.

The 2 fans are 140mm computer case fans, they have 2 speeds Very low current draw and a literally silent

The specs Antec TrueQuiet 140:
- Current draw - 0.04 amps on low and 0.1 amp on high.
- Decibels - 9.8 db on low and 20 db on high
- Airflow (CFM) - 40.5 on low and 65 on high

Compared to the Fantastic fan (3 speed):
- Current draw - 1.89, 2.29 and 3.0 amps on low, medium and high.
- Decibels - 39.0, 39.0 and 40.0 db on low, med and high
- Airflow (CFM) - 478, 653 and 920 on low med and high (no comparison on airflow but remember our trailers are only 360 cu/ft total volume without cabinets)

We will be testing them on a trip starting tomorrow, I understand the temperatures will be mid 30C.
