Wow- Tillamook to Coos Bay in one day!

How EVER will you be able to do all the Tourist Attractions along the way?

I love the Oregon Coast, not just for the scenery but because there are so many wonderfully schlocky tourist traps scattered thereon...and I say that with the greatest sincerity, not to mention with pride as a Native Oregonian.

If nothing else, do be sure and hit the "Ripley's Believe it or Not!" museum in Newport along with the "Madame Tussaud's" next door.

And don't forget to bring home something made of Myrtlewood!

Francesca

Thought I would do an update on the mods in this thread.
The major one was the front bunk area.
Marilyn is very happy with the drawer holds all the clothes she brought with her including shoes for our 3months away. The only challenge is that the drawer is so big that sometimes she has trouble finding a particular garment.
The unfinished area in the front by the counter has our toiletry bags, laundry bag and other miscellaneous items and prior this area was viturouly unused!
The portapot has been a welcome addition and the storage areas created around it are very user friendly. The only challenge there is we're experiencing moisture getting into the wood in one spot.
Freddy's Diner is a big hit! No more looking for his leash, kicking over the water dish in the night, or wondering where his raincoat is.
More to come
Fred

So the removal of the toilet is the top access? Or does the front of the cabinet fold down to let it slide out the front? The AC unit in my CT mounts where your toilet is but I would like to do the same thing in the center compartment of it for a porta pottie like you have.

Where is the moisture you spoke of coming from? Do you think putting a layer of fiberglass in the inside of the enclosure with a fresh air vent to the outside under the floor would be a good idea? Or possibly one of then solar vent caps threw the wall to keep the area ventilated better?

Thanks again for sharing your ideas and results. It gives me motivation to get into mine and make it more user friendly!

Yes Chris the hole for the handle allows you to get your hand under it and lift it high enough to maneuver it out. A front access may be a better option for some.
The moisture problem is just interior wall moisture build up. I'm sure the biggest problem was that on our journey south over about 10days many nights the temperature got down in the 20s and anyone with this type of camper understands that deal.I just need to seal the wood better where it contacts the wall.
Are you putting your air center front or center rear?
Fred

Fred, how are things going in California. I've been following along as well. From the pics, looks like some place I should be.

The AC is where you put your toilet. The toilet is going to be in the center section, and the left side I'd storage now and possiblyn little water heater in the future.

Yes sir that's a concern for me too. I have an interstate SRM-29 and plan to run it instead of an SRM-24. That puts a little more on the rear to offset the water heater. But that will be a project for later in the summer. Going to use it like it was built for a time to see if I even need the water heater. I plan to use it for car shows so it will only be one night at a time. And they have showers and toilets there for those who camp. Other than that it gets used for me and the wife to turn on the heat and let her go out and pet the cat because he does not come in the house.

Hey Chris nice cat,,what's an SRM?

A reno we did on the road.
The 20$ Flooring Kit.
We have always just used throw rugs in the Boler to keep maintenance easy. Marilyn said it was time for new ones but we never found any we liked.
We stumbled upon this at Wally World. 1/2inch thick foam. 6, 2ft. sq. interlocking pieces for 20$ so we thought we'd try it.
It's been in for about a week, comfortable on the feet, easy to clean and keeps the Boler warmer on cool nights.
Marilyn likes it,was easy install, and I'm back to the recliner!!
Fred

Marine/RV Deep Cycle. Not sure what the initials are for. Just know it will run my heater and a light or two for an hr or so each evening for over a week and still not have a problem with loss of power. Thought it was plugged in to the house but it was not. And that's with only the group-29.

Hey Chris, you said you go to car shows. What have ya got?
This is mine 1964 Mercury comet, modified heavily.
My goal is to use it to tow the Boler south for our 2014 winter vacation.
