Ok ok, here ya guys go...pics!

Hey guys and gals, thanks for the warm welcome in the "hi" thread. Here are the pics:

Missing the front cover, anyone know where I can get one?


Wonder what happened to the original fridge? Seems like someone put in a newer/smaller one, and used a peice of wood as a gap filler, ugh. Going to need to do some research on fiberglass repair.


Will need to purchase foam and make some covers, I've heard foam isn't cheap. Anyone know if there are new ones to purchase online?


I haven't seen any pics with bolers having yellow sinks before:


The two side windows stick out about 1 inch in the trailer, and have white foam around them...I'm assuming that's not "stock".


The back window has a slider, which has been caulking shut, ugh.


Well look who we've got here, my greyhound Bella! She's the supervisor!



Well, I know...it's a bit of work, but I think I can do it So, anyone have cushion/curtain color ideas? I'm pretty much starting with a blank slate, not too sure what to do...keep vintage theme, or go a bit more modern. Ideas?

You can get brand new cushions from Scamp.

Congrats!

Head for a rally. You will be given lots of ideas either in the trailer tours or through everyone's friendly desire to help.

For most of your parts, gravel guard, cushions, and anything else you might need I suggest that you call Scamp. They may be able to offer you more options than the green, blue and brown covers. Ours are plaid browns. They will also send you fabric samples. You might also be able to buy just the foam and make your own covers. I believe Scamp foam will fit Bolers.

That would be fantastic, I'm going to call for sure...a bit worried about shipping costs though, we'll see.

So far I have:

1. Removed, sanded and painted the cabinet doors.
2. Removed, sanded and painted the wooden seating covers.
3. Ripped out the sink, since I don't have a water tank figured why not...I'm use to tent camping, the boler is just a dry place to sleep off of the ground.
4. Ripped...err butchered out the light above the sink.
5. Partially ripped out the stove (deathly afraid of propane, had a classmate severly burned when a propane tank exploaded).
6. Painted most of the walls with killz primer.

I'd have a lot more done, but this weather is terrible here.

I've decided I'm going for the "retro modern" look. Walls will be off white, same as with the interior fiberglass, cushions will be brown, pillows will have some green color to them, with retro squares.

Maggie, yours is in better shape than some we've seen. Make it safe to go down the road and clean, so all the incoming dirt is YOURs... then get out and use it! Consider it a hard-sided tent until you can get everything done precisely the way you want it.... even if that means saving the money. Don't go half-cheap or you'll regret it due to dissatisfaction later because you wasted money. Sleep on an airmattress if you can't afford foam right now. As you said, you're a past tenter.

Best of luck!

The weather has indeed been a negative factor in getting tasks completed on the trailers. We are also going retro with oranges and maybe some browns and greens and if I can talk my wife into it a little purple

About the propane don't be too scared of it, as long as you follow all the safety procedures and leak test all fittings with a soapy water mixture from a dollar store spray bottle you shouldn't have any problems.
