Raya, what a wonderful and simple shower idea. I can't believe I never thought of it since I use those darned sprayers on the farm all the time--will have to buy a new one for a shower, of course. We trailer sometimes and tent others and that would work well for either. I plan to try it! I expect the grandkids will love it!

here is a shot of the bump on the roof. i had to have this in order to have the fan not hang down into my headroom in the trailer.
it has been well glassed, and sealed to the trailer shell so there is no water leaking in.

Thanks for the photos. Now I have more questions though

First I'm curious about the taillights. I can't get that photo to enlarge (although all the others in that post do), but did you fill in the usual Boler recesses? I'm actually a little bit curious if your trailer is a Boler, since it has that large, Perris-Pacer-like window on the driver's side (of course that could have been added). The kitchen cabinet door patterns don't look typical Boler either (although again, there were a number of variations; but I though the variations were more common in later years?).

Next, I notice a sort of spatter-paint effect on the walls and ceiling. Did you remove the Ensolite? Are you going to put any insulation back?

And lastly, I was wondering if you could give some details on those sharp-looking wheels. What kind/size are they? And did you have to make any mods to get them to fit?

Really enjoying the photos and mod details,

Raya

hi Raya,

the question as to whether or not it is a boler has been asked and no solid answers on it.
could be a perris pacer, or lord knows what else.
it had no light recesses. it was sold to me as a boler.

the spatter on the inside is as i bought it. it had no ensolite, and there is no evidence of it ever being there. a big heater does the trick in the cold

as for the wheels...
i bought them here:
http://www.trailerandtruckparts.com/Wheels_c_114.html
there were no changes to make them fit. they are 13" aluminum 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern.
free shipping over 150 bucks.


they are nice looking wheels and were delivered quickly.
i think they were $70 each.
