The interior cushions are almost completed! We have the rear bunk all finished up and now the fiancee is just finishing up the front bunk cushions.

I also just finished wiring up the battery and the fridge and converter.
Propane has just been professionally installed also.


Pictures will be up soon!

The rear cushions are finished! Only ones left now is the front bench set.
They look good and are super comfy.

Nice!

I love the new cushions and the butcherblock countertop. I was wondering about doing something like that with ours - did you just mount the wood countertop on top of the existing FB counter? Need to reinforce it with anything?

Thanks! The countertop is just a laminate one from Ikea. I had to trim the backside of it because all the countertops I found were to deep to fit the Boler counter. I didn't reinforce anything as my "kitchen unit" already had reinforcements put in along the sides and up the middle.

Thanks, Darragh
I think I may do the same as I am not in a position to do any rewiring any time soon. Thanks for sharing your ideas! This site has been so helpful for newbies such as me!

You certainly have a lot of talent Darragh! I don't know what you do for a living, but if I were you, I would seriously consider restoring FG campers!
GREAT JOB!

Thanks for the vote of confidence BigLew! To tell you the truth. I had absolutely no prior reno experience before starting my Boler. I learned wiring/electrical from some friends, the web, and books/manuals. A lot of the renos were done by trial and error.

Here are some of the finished pictures of the interior. All the cushions are finished. Shelves are stocked with storage boxes. Our maiden voyage is in 2 weeks, we're taking her out to Kelowna! I can't wait!

nice job.

Enjoyed reading about your reno. in the midst of a boler reno myself. Totally gutted and started from scratch. Doing it on a shoestring budget.. Never owned a camper of any type before so it's all new. But definitely not camping though. Well done and it looks great.
