This is a HUGE recognition. So many (newbee) folks buy a trailer that fits in their garage and replace the axle....

THANKS for the reminder

Still following along on all the mods Fred. LOVE the pics, thanks for sharing

Hey Chris, yes I have Slots on most of the vehicles I own!,,lol
We're gonna try to get out camping for a few days this coming week so I'm busy with final details.
Thought I'd throw up a couple of pics of how things turned out.
The first 2 are about how clean the counter looks with the old tube light and the chrome pole gone. If you look close you can see where I filled the hole in the counter from the chrome tube. Put some glass up from the bottom, smoothed on some body filler and a bit of touch up paint. plenty good till I get around to painting the cabinet shells. In the next pic there is a small white tube runninig up by the window, that carries the electric cable up to the Led lights. The last 2 pics show the finished product!!
Very happy with the results and with the pat on the back from Marilyn,,,,feelin pretty good!!
LOL
Fred
Didn't get some changes done so I'll be backThanks for the support

Realized we needed one of these on our last outting.
Went all out!! spent $1.50 on a piece of steel.
What we used in the past was mounted to the chrome pole
that went up to the floresent light, all of which I removed,,,,,,

After reviewing the above post I realized I still want a higher fauset.
Some people have posted what they have but I don't seem to get to the
right sight or the unit is too much money for me. If you have any answers
please post here.

Fred, are you referring to the faucet on the right or the faucet on the left?

For the city water, some people have used a pull out bath faucet, others the faucet from a reverse osmosis water dispenser.

Finally found exactly what I wanted for the sink. Bought but not installed yet. About 9 inches high swings and stands off about 4 inches.
Hope the link works there is a picture.
I've looked all over the place, found it in our town at the Home Hardware for 35$

Got around to installing the fauset today.
Great except for was kinda nervous that the water would come out too close to the sink edge so I took some of the bend out of the spout so it sprays towards to center of the sink better.

Fred, would a swivel aereator work for your application? Here's a small one: Neoperl 12 9200 5 15/16-Inch by 55/64-Inch-27-1.5-GPM PCA Vario Single Swivel Regular, Chrome

I was in and out of the Boler so much I took the door off!! It took forever to get the first corner. Even then both sides weren't the same. The second was close so it was easier to get it nice. Then I made the back piece in the middle which went pretty smooth.
I tied them together so they became a unit as my goal is to have the floor of this shelf made as a single piece. Then was the job of getting it out of the trailer as a single piece. Turned out just had to take out the upper kitchen cabinet support,simple.
This piece is just the pattern. The finish product will be in birch ply.
The next step in the trailer is to glas in a support for the shelf to rest on.
I plan to do this a little different than I have seen up to present.
I plan to cut the ensolite along the line and peel it down a bit, create the ledge which will look like a wedge in a cross section view then glue the ensolite back up.
If anyone has seen this I would appreciate a link cause I'm a little nervous about it.
Fred
Fred, I am curious....how are you attaching the shelf you are putting above the booth. I have been warned about putting anything like this up due to any kind of weight will be to much for the Boler and the thin fiberglass body. Thank you for any help on this because we would love to put some shelving up also!!

Hey Renae, the complete build is in the posts following the one you quoted .
As far as the weight, Boler had a unit similar to this of their own.
We will be pulling the Boler about 4000 miles and living in it for the next 3 plus months, We'll see how it holds up or sure.
Fred
