chris , is the wood "cover " for your sink wider than the on the sides? if so get some of the magnetic tape and adhere it to the countertop on either side of the sink and attach some more magnetic tape to the underside of the sink cover . as stated by others above the sink maybe stainless and therefore non-magnetic so this way the cover will "stick " to the magnetic tape on the counter and not move when you are travelling

Dave

The best ideas for the trailer came this summer while camping in it, no better way to figure out what you need than through experience. Here are pictures of a couple stops.



First trip was to the southern Canadian Rockies to paint the trailer, very generous offer. Although I didn't get to camp in it, towing was still learning.



Trailer ready to head home.

Our first attempt at camping failed as the tongue broke (right where the new reinforcement had been stopped, ?I have already made arrangements to learn to weld next summer)



Our first trip out was to Mt. Robison Provincial Park, on the BC side of the Rockies.



Then Dinosaur Provincial Park in the southern Alberta Badlands. Where the kids got to find dinosaur fossils.



Then Waterton National Park, where it felt good to be in the trailer with so many bears, an amazing place.



Then a trip to Jasper National Park.



And closed the summer out in Rock Lake Provincial Park. The project although not finished was definitely worth all the work. Now we will see if I can wait for next summer, or end up camping in the Rockies this winter.

Sounds good. We will likely try, but with electric hook ups (still need to install that option), to ensure we are warm Will let you know.

I lost one of the Boler emblems for the outside, and as some suggested earlier in this thread I cast a new one, well I finally got around to it.



I picked up a kit, although now unnecessary, for a first time it worked really well.



I made a container for the mold, which it turned out had a slightly uneven bottom, next time I would do this differently.



Then made the mold.



A little over our on the back, and another one curing in the mold.



A little trimming and sanding and it is ready for paint. With the garage below freezing this will be finished in the spring.

I also want to see if milk and vinegar make a plastic usable for such projects.

With the warmer weather I painted the new Emblem for the trailer, turned out great!



Hopefully get the trailer out camping next weekend. Had planned on camping in the winter, but then the cold came and it didn't seem like a good idea anymore.

Front Window Shield

Hey Chris,

I see that you have installed a front window cover on your rig and I wanted to ask if you think it is really necessary? I've seen some have it and others not. With the window being so high up I don't think there is too much worry about rocks. Our Boler has rock chips only on the bottom fourth of the front. Just wondering if there is another reason to have it that I'm not aware of. I'm tempted to not put one on, BUT, wanted to get some info. I guess it could be a "cool" factor. Thanks a lot.

Slav

It came with the cover, so I planned to put it on. However the front window is more flexible than the plexiglass that should have been used, so at about 120 km the window started to blow in. The front window guard makes it possible to drive without the wind being an issue.

It also makes it darker to sleep and cooler on those hot days. Pros for leaving it off is that you can see through the windows of the trailer when driving and get an idea of what is happening behind you.
