Take heater out of Boler - Now what?

I own a 13 foot Boler trailer. It has the original heater in it -- potentially a dangerous thing. So it's got to go. The question is, what should we do with the extra space? I don't think we'll bother with putting in another heater - we don't need it. What would be a good way to use this space?

How about a 15 inch sub-woofer?

Aaargh!

Not another "thumper" rattling my fillings, now following me into the woods!

Perhaps a built in wall safe. Maybe a wine storage rack. Maybe a boxing glove on a spring that pops out when a Nosey Nellie peeks into the outside door.

well if you don't need it, I'll take it. the space that is not the heater. :lol I'm in the process of taking my heater out too. was yours rusted together. can't get mine to budge one little wiggle.

now as for a real thing to do with the space ? ? make a dogie bed in it. -or- slide an extra cooler in there. -or- carry those extra pair of shoes. see I have no problem with filling space.

Stupidest thing we ever did...

...was taking out the heater.

We took it out cause of the age and the rust in it. Didn't think it would be safe. Now we totally regret it and wish we had taken it to be tested before we got silly and removed it. So now we will have the heater checked out and back in it will go, thats if its any good after all the banging and pulling it took to get it out. No Jana they don't come out easy.

At the time we thought we would never use it but because it does not require any power neither electric nor battery, we now realize we would use it often on chilly nights.
Hindsight is 20/20.
Nancy

Hi Ches
No we want it. Just didn't realize that we did until after it was out. It will go back in unless it is no good but we won't worry about it this year as we will be on electric sites for a change.

Sorry Ches
But if we do eventually get rid of it, its yours. Talk to Jana, she's getting rid of hers.

We were thinking of pulling it out and making a door and shelves...

Please be careful with these old heaters, there have been more than a couple people in the news each year that have died of carbon monoxide poisoning from thier 20 odd year old heater.

our heater is 29 or 30 years old.. Thats kinda scary to me. I think its time to get it out.

You are scaring me about the horrors of pulling it out. We haven't started.. We're just building a spring time to do list.

As a backgrounder we dont use this trailer for camping. We only use it for road trips, which are generally taken to warm places like florida and maybe texas this year.

Camping for us is loading up our backpacks and heading into the woods or loading up the jeep and driving even deeper.

Yes we're still young and dumb.

That's exactly what I was going to suggest. Good choice. ;)

Yes, you are young enough; no you are not dumb. I love to backpack...but I'm afraid those days are gone for me. Hurray for you!

Thanks for all your replies. Extra storage space seems to be the order of the day, especially in a small 13 foot Boler! I wouldn't trust a 30 year old heater, so I wouldn't want to keep it. Which brings me to an interesting question: How many of you have carbon monoxide detectors in your trailers?

Hi All
Because it is old does not mean that it is no good.Go to a furnace doctor and have a check up.I go to doctor and have checkups and as Michael says(I am Old As Dirt).

Send it to me if you don't want it.
