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 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.

You have inspired me! There will be a plywood top that hinges the top and front to swing up to let the toilet come out to be emptied out.
How is your AC unit vented to the outside? We live in Arizona and HAVE to install one!

Hi Fred! I was not wondering about the over-all weight of the Boler but the tension weight on the sidewall fiber glass. I was looking at the body of your Boler and even though there isn't a good close-up picture I don't see screws or rivets on the outside. How are your shelves over the booth and the newer one in the front corner by the Door....and the TV supported????

Hey Renae, not sure why you qouted the post of the potapotty,,,?
I didn't check to see if you have a Boler cause that an affect things too but posts 44 and 45 in this thread will probably answer most of your questions on my installation of the air conditioner.
I have rethought it's location several times though as that under table area can be well used for storage.
I don't think I'd want it in the closet as a lot of people do,,maybe under the seat behind the closet or the hard to use spot forward of the fridge and stove. The forward spot ands more weight front and left though which I do not need.

The potapotty post by Chris has a picture of his AC unit right next to the front door. In the area where you have installed the potty - Chris installed his in the middle.
I also just sent you a question about the weight of adding shelves.

We have a 1979 Boler....we have only had it about 6 months but plan on doing some very serious RVing (not necessarily camping) in it so we will want to add as much storage as we possibly can.

Hey Renae,read and look through,the pics in post 149,in this thread.
If you don't understand using fiberglas and resin you can search it on youtube for some tutorials. Basically I've glued everything on with the same material that the Boler was made with,,hope this helps.

Sorry missed the air conditioner in the picture.

I never worried about the weight of the shelves, or their contents, I think my Boler is strong enough but we will see over the next few months.

We use ours more for RVing than camping as well. We need to be able to have a hot shower DAILY and most camp sites don't have them, at least around here!

Finally got a round to finishing the "corral" on the shelf by the door.
Came out decent. My biggest problem was keeping the raw wood clean while using all my welding , mechanic tools on it
I also added a push on push off led light to the underside.
Amazing how a picture points out the flaws I couldn't see prior to gluing!!

Tried to be a bit creative,,,,,,,,,,,

Well we're into the final countdown.
Hittin the road with the pictured combo Jan1
for our southern vacation.
We need to get creative with some of our packing this year
because in the past we used a small pickup truck with a cap as a tug.
This year our storage is much more limited and I'm pickier about
what I put where. Plus we need to be able to use the Boler for overnighters
while traveling.
I'll probably post some pics of how we packed but would sure like imput from anyone who has ideas and or experience.
thanks
Fred

Woo Hoo!!! Off you go! The mods look great, and I'm sure you're going to think of more while you're on this trip.
I must be nice to be heading south away from the
and into the warm, warm !!!

Have a great time, Fred!!

We made it! 3 months in our Boler and we're closer than ever!! lol
Had a great time but we were ready to come home when we heard they were golfing here.
Time permitting I'll add to this post to show packing etc.
Thee addition of the rear overhead and shelves made a huge difference in
where to put stuff.
The only things we thought would be an improvment, bigger fridge and of course a bigger bed
Wish I could have shown more during our trip but a combination of poor wifi and breaking our blackberry forsing us to use my little phone sucked.
Fred
