Rebuild of 13 ft Boler - Kitimat, BC

Nicole:
I have been working on this gem.
I have stripped the inside, and removed all of the insulation/glue etc.
I also built a frame on the inside so the body stays in shape, all of the parts are inside of it, and now has been tarped for the winter.
I have plenty of pics though.
I would like to chat or meet as well. I work a week on and a week off in Kemano, off to work tomorrow.

My email is tulipvendor50@yahoo.ca

Send an email and we can set time or place.

Rebuild of 13 ft Boler - Kitimat, BC

Well it has been a while since I posted about this gem.
Due to the excessive damage on the shell, the ensolite had to go. I now have a bare shell.
As seen in the previous pics, there is even more damage, but being fiberglass it is an easy fix -relatively easy.
The shell has been taken off the frame, the frame is a C channel and not box frame, yet the boler is registered as a 74. The frame needs work, and that is progressing slowly. I am also putting on a new axleless axle with brakes.

The floor seems to be intact, but I do need to take a closer look at it.
I have many ideas but not sure how it will all end.

Here are some pics of where it stands right now.

Current status?

What's up with this project? How did you choose to skin the inside after all of the fiberglass repair work is completed? I'm curious because I have a 1970 13' Boler with the ensolite removed throughout and I'm exploring all options for insulation and liner.

Replacing the headliner or ensolite is a relatively big job best accomplished when the shell is empty. Effectively gluing to the ceiling is difficult for a couple of reasons, working overhead in a low, cramped space and dealing with gravity being the biggest.
I removed, traced and replaced my carpet style headliner. Cleaning the old dried glue off of the shell interior was awkward and laborious. It took a few days of intense work. I used outdoor carpet glue that I picked up at my local flooring store. I bought my headliner from a fellow Boler owner who had redone his trailer as well. I simply used a scraper or a flat screwdriver to tuck the carpet behind the cabinets that I did not remove.
I see you are from Florida, so I assume you are thinking about insulation, mine didn't come with any and I didn't put any back in. It does get hot up here in the summers and there is some condensation to contend with, but I don't know if insulation would stop that from happening.
I will say what I always try and state. A headliner can be replaced if you are a handy, dedicated DIY'r. I am not advising people to go and rip out their ensolite, but if it is already gone then here is an alternate solution.
Best of luck !
