Hi Jason,
Just brought home my "new" '84 pacer! The first thing I did was to pull up the linoleum someone had put down. I am concered the flooring has been wet, haven't figured out yet where it came from?? Anyway... I thought I should replace the plywood, how the heck did you pull out the benches? You have done a SUPER job on your, very impressed!
Vicki

Hey Thanks, Well My benches were riveted in along the edges under the cushions. On the road side the wood that held the bench was rotten so it came right out but on the other side and on the front i had to drill out the rivets to get the benches out.

So I think this would work for you, However I know I have seen Other trailers on here where the benches and cabinets and stuff are all molded Into the Trailer, I think the Bolers are this way(someone please correct me if i am wrong). So with yours being a little newer than mine I can not be sure that your trailer even has rivets.

When I reinstalled the Benches I decided to use machine screws and nuts and washers to install them, just in case I need to remove them any time.As I'm planing a full resto sometime In the future as well

Ill post some pics soon of the benches reinstalled in the trailer

Thanks again for the compliments!

Id love to see pictures of your trailer as well

On the Boler 13's that I have seen, the benches are screwed to wooden cleats around the upper perimeter. The cleats are fiberglassed to the sidewalls of the trailer. The inside/bottom of the benches have wooden cleats fiberglassed to the benches themselves, and then those are screwed into the floor. In other words, a screwdriver would remove the benches from the trailer (well, and a person to carry them!)

I do know that some of the very newest (1980s) Boler 13s made use of fiberglass tabbing where the cabinetry is normally riveted through the shell, but I'm not sure if or how that affected the benches.

Just about done with the inside of the trailer

I have an old 81 vw camper that i started pillaging for parts

thats where i got the extra little tables, the cutting board and the fold up leg for the table, I need to extend it a little though.

The next big project Will be to steal the furnace from the old vw. and maybe the propane tank and the fridge if it fits better and works.

anyways its pretty much done for now heres some pics

Jason,
Glad to see you have been working hard - you have done a fabulous job
My "Tillie" is still sitting in the driveway, waiting for you to come by - you can start any time!!
Did you replace the liner, or is that original? Could you do a couple of pics of the weatherstripping you are using on the door and entrance - I need some ideas!
Vicki

Jason,
That shiny new flooring looks fantastic, as does that nifty little fold out table, by the front door...you can sit and eat your breakfast, with the door open...make all the other campers jealous! Plus, they'll all want a sneak peak inside of that cute little EGGIE!
I'm with Vickie A.:...either come out to Oregon and help me fix mine up...or better yet, open up Perris Repair Shop and I'll drop mine off!
Hope to meet you and your family somewhere along the many trails and get to inspect that Egg, live and in person!
Barbara
