I tried again today to get a couple of shots showing the fabric against the cupboard doors. There is not a lot of that blue in the fabric but I am happy with the result.

i love the colours, .......now that we had that hit of warmth over the last week, My wife and i have been looking through colours and patterns and such for the boler, .........we will be ordering cushions covers from scamp shortly, and then re-cutting some foam we had!!!!

as soon as the snow is gone we'll be taking the body off the frame painting the frame, and re-instaling with "U" bolts........

but randy this thread is keeping me going for ideas, so keep up the good work!!

Door And Front Bench

I managed to get some help today so that I could finally hang the door. The original hinges were garbage but the fellow I bought the trailer from threw in the new set he had purchased from Scamp. Of course they have three bolts on the trailer side rather than two and the arm is slightly longer than the Boler hinges. I filled all of the old holes before painting because they were badly worn and the placement was going to change with the new hinges. I cut metal backing plates for both the door and trailer side. On the trailer side I cut slits in the ensolite and slipped them in. I will caulk and paint over the scars that caused. The L-400 latch is a brand new one that I was very lucky to find on ebay several months ago. I can't close the door yet because the bolt heads are hitting the trim I installed and it will have to be cut back a bit. It will also have to be cut for the latch where I plan to add some steel to make the lock more secure. The checkerplate on the bottom of the door was added by a previous owner to cover a hole in the shell. I left it alone because it is securely riveted on and may help the door retain the correct shape.
Having the door on allowed me to install the front bench and bunk too.

WOW! Glad I just went back thru all the pics---somehow I missed the ones of the curtains! I love EVERYTHING you've done! Even the shape of the cabinet doors! You may not want to come OUT of your camper once it's done!

Water Tank Answers

I received a reply from Polyrama Plastics in Edmonton regarding my question about the shape of their tank. It does not have an inset corner like mine so the original location will not work. Did some more digging here and found the same information in old posts.

From 2007;
J Martin
"Well, thanks to Polyrama, a windshield washer pump and Princess Auto my egg has running water for the first time in sixteen years! Thanks for the supplier tip, Alf! As a note, a few mods were necessary. The tank from polyrama doesn't have a cutout for the fill, as on the original tank, but is fully rectangular. I was able to move it closer to the frame on the right to get it hooked up though. I replaced all lines, the 12V switch and polished up the faucet. More to come..."

I also found a pdf (posted by Roy in TO) showing the tank. This is no longer available from the Polyrama site as far as I can tell. As much as I hate drilling holes through the floor I guess there will be four more.

Bunk

I put the bunk in to see how it all works and found that the supports tended to slide out from under the board so I drilled two holes through it and added a couple of bolts with wing nuts and washers to keep them in place. I don't anticipate using this other than as a shelf when parked. I have not attached the cushion to the board yet but will probably work out something with velcro. I have since pulled it out for painting.

Door Window

The door window frame sides and bottom have no backing to screw into so I ripped some 2x4 down to fit and attached it with epoxy.

Door Window Install

I had thought it was ready for the trash but gave it a last chance and finally worked out a way to get it cleaned, assembled and actually working again. Note the typical bent corner caused by the door swinging all the way into the trailer body while the window was open. The rubber from around the opening is missing and the seal around the frame is not in good shape but I decided to make do until I can get replacements. I used some glazing gasket both around the glass and the oval frame in the hope that it will be water tight until I can get the proper seals. I had to fill the top row of holes with epoxy since they had been drilled out beyond the screw size I am using. Also added a new nylon screen, the beading fit well under the folded metal edge except in the two spots where the crank attaches.

Bed and Window

I had the bed set up the other day and shot a couple of pics. Also completed the installation of the door window. I mentioned before that I had to fill the top row of holes with epoxy due to their size and once it hardened I was able to put the new screws in. I actually tried the bed out the other day when my vehicle was in for repairs for the full day and I was stuck without transportaion. Took a short nap out of boredom. I bought new foam last year and chose the middle option in terms of firmness. Glad I did as they are firm but comforatble, any firmer would be too much.
