Bbuehler, I hope to meet up with everyone at Stub Stewart park in April, it should be a great meet. Robert, I looked at your trailer profile and they look fantastic. I think I may have had it easier in some ways going completly new. You were able to save and re-use most, if not all of the original fiberglass parts on your trailers. They all look nice.

Wait until you see my current project! Complete ground-up restoration of a 1971 Boler... Here's what it looked like when it was dropped off...

The interior was completely gutted, and the entire subfloor removed. The frame can't be saved, so a new one will be built. Lots of body work is necessary. Special treat: I plan on using a extra wide window similar to the Perris Pacers on the streetside to go along with a totally custom interior.

Oh, boy, another Johans beauty! Can't wait to watch it transform! I may be contacting you soon with questions as I start in on Bean.

BTW, Danny, I'm very keen to see some details of your front hitch, propane tank and regulator set-up. Looks very clean and tight. Can you share some close-ups?

Anytime, Vickie!

(I thought you might be interested to hear of the PP window going into this Boler!)

Wow Robert, that looks like a killer project. Here are a couple of shots of the front of my trailer. I used a piece of aluminum diamond plate to attach everything to, as the bars that hold up the propane tank and battery were screwed up. I couldn't figure a nice way to hold the propane tank secure and ended up getting a forklift propane holder. It's not the lightest thing, but I was able to modify it to fit into the area. I put a twist tie to hold the handle secure; it just slides to the side when I want the tank. The little box on the battery box is for my solar collector wire connection, when I get it in the future.

Very, very clean. Any chance you can show me how you've mounted your regulator?

Here are a couple of shots from that side. The other thing I liked with using the forklift propane support was it gave me a point to anchor on the regulator. I also put in one of those easy extension connections to use our outside stove on a table under the awning.

I forgot, the one wire hanging down in some of the shots was from my battery charger line hung from the ceiling.

Again, very tight installation. Kudos. Thanks very much for sharing.

Danny,
How tightly are the bolt heads holding the propane regulator touching the propane tank?
Looks like they might wear into the tank.

I have about 1/16" to 1/8" clearance when everything is tightened up. I was concerned about that also. When getting everything adjusted I put a few scrapes in the tank, but it was from the hinged connector on the support. I had to modify (take a hammer to it) to widen it out a little.
