Fred, when do you plan to come for a visit. I'll make sure the boler is in the garage. I haven't visited this site for a while and after reading this, gets me thinking about the new frame and axle update when we get back. Look forward to following along.
Vic.

Well after being a little off for a couple of days with the flu I finally picked up some birch ply and layed a template on it!
My beltsander piled up before I was done so the fit could have been better but decent is what I was after and thats what I got. The one obvious mistake, cut it upside down and my cutoffs on the ensolite could have been better,,bead of chalking
Thinking we'll have a wall across the back like most installs then maybe dowels down the side shelves. The pics of the propane are just to show the amount of space created.
This mod will be VERY WORTH the time, effort and money required to complete! AND, completed the goal of the shelf made as 1 piece.
Still finishing to do and will post as that happens.
Fred

OK, let me set the scene.
This scene has repeated it self several times
We're in the middle of our winter getaway in Calif. It's evening, Marilyn has retired for the evening. I'm sitting on the Blackberry researching the next days drive of the specs of some hotrod car I'll probably never own
A kind of cold sweat comes over me as I realize I didn't get my pjs out from under the dinette when I made the bed After thinking for a few minutes how this converstaion is gonna go and realizing Marilyn is about asleep I quietly say Marliyn, could you get up for a minute?
WHAT THE HELL FORGET YOUR DAMN PJS AGAIN? CAN'T YOU REMEMBER A DAMN THING? IF I WAS AS FORGETFUL AS YOU PROBABLY STARVE TO DEATH CAUSE GOD KNOWS YOUR COOKING WOULD KILL YOU. IF YOU HADN'T BEEN SITTING ON THAT DAMN BLACKBERRY TILL THE BATTERIES WENT DEAD YOU'D OF REALIZED YOU NEEDED YOUR PJS BEFORE I WAS ASLEEP! blah,blah,blah sorry dear,I finally survivied enough verbal assault that I was able to retrieve my pjs, REMAKE the bed. After one of these rants I decided that a different accesss to my pjs was necessary!

I loved the story, Fred...didn't Marilyn get my "Attagirl!" telegram?

Francesca

P.S.

I advised her that the best way to train you would be to make you sleep outside if you ever do it again...

Hey Vic,around post #97 will explain what I did.

Not too much progress lately, have the front of the overhead fitted and the picture also shows the support for the front and a portion of a door opening. The front will only be mounted to the shelf brace, the top will just contact the ensolite. Pretty much just need to mount doors, clean and a few coats of urathane.

And, I have ANOTHER hole in the Boler, my PJs should fit in there!
The pic from inside shows the support I had to glas in on the right side of the hole cause the dinette bottom needed a lttle support there.

I made this box today to hold some of my clothing.
I've never seen drawer slides this long so don't know how
to install it other than some kind of channel.
Any Ideas appreciated.
Fred

I finished the rear overhead storage today so I thought I'd throw up some pictures. The goal was decent and I'm more than pleased with the result!
And strong, I hung my entire body weight (about 190) from the center of the unit so not worried about what we put up there. I will be making a small bracket that fits on the dowel and holds up the front inside of the shelf.
The under dinette clothes drawer is just about done, pics soon.
I'm thinking of sectioning 6 inches out of the counter to make for a longer headboard.
Also figgered a way to get the window cranks out of the rear side windows without removing and tearing the windows apart. Now need to find a supplier of new crank mechanisms,,,,

Fred,

You may want to look at Lee Valley Hardware (online) for the long drawer slides. They can be expensive, but they worked great for my deep drawers that I put in my 19' Escape. You may also want to refer to a post on the Escape Forum regarding the deep drawers: 19' Under-bed storage - Escape Trailer Owners Community

Hope this helps,

Bret

Bret, thanks for the responce on the slides. The other forum wouldn't let me see the pics so I went to Lee Valley online. Lots of slides but I didn't see any with more than 28 inch extension. I'm looking for something with about 40 inch extension,,,did I miss something?
Fred

Fred,

Try this link: Extra-Heavy-Duty Slides - Lee Valley Tools

They are Extra Heavy Duty (and extra heavy expensive), but they are the only ones that I have found that extend the length I needed, and will support the weight. I bought two sets of 36" slides, and they have worked great for our needs.

Good luck,

Bret
