Robert, I think the Bargman L-300 is square, where the L-400 is retangular. Someone would need to verify that. All I know, is if I had a Boler and was going to paint and didn't mind a fiberglass repair ... changing the door lockset to something other than the ellusive L-400 would be at the top of the list!

Back At It

I have come out of my financial woes and just placed an order for a fantastic fan, some window gaskets and led bulbs for interior lighting. I am also ready to get a new coupler welded on and the wheel bearings replaced. Must get this thing on the road although there has been little sign of summer in these parts.

The Boler Came Home Today

I have recieved my Fantasic Fan, water tank and cabinet hardware and after getting the cupboard doors secured I brought the boler home. Here it is in front of my house. After the fan installation it will not likely fit into any typical garage again.

Cabinet Latches

I struggled with this for a while and finally decided to get what is available. These are not pretty and it seems none are made with a chrome finish but they do work and you can't go far without them. Once again I purchased them through Affordable RV here in Calgary. They have access to the Coast catalogue that many rv dealers use. I used two for the closet door since I have heard that it is the one that often pops open.

Window Gaskets

With my Fantastic Fan order I also purchased the gaskets for the small door window. So far I have only installed the one around the oval opening. I will have to remove the window to put the back gasket in place. The new water tank is slightly smaller than the original and it does not have the corner cutout for the fill pipe fitting so I will have to re-build the box for that. I will post pictures of that when I get to it but it is not essential for use. Tomorrow I visit a welder to have the coupler replaced, safety chains installed and a tray for my battery added.

Your trailer looks great and I like the blue. If you have a standard garage door, I think your correct that it will not fit into the garage with the fantastic fan on top. I measured mine before installation and it added 3 to 4 inches to the top. I wanted it to still fit in the garage, so installed the fan on the side wall, behind the stove. I works great and is very quite.

New Coupler

I hated the original worn out small-ball coupler, the lack of safety chains, and the twist in the coupler to frame connection so much that this had to be completed before I actually hit the road. The welder is with The Welding Shop here in Calgary. I was referred to them by the guys at Affordable RV who have been helping me get the parts I need to finish.
I had them remove the old coupler, install the one I got with the trailer, attach my new safety chains and add a tray (with cutout to clear the propane bottle) for my battery box. I think they did a great job and I feel much safer pulling it now. They even sparyed on a coat of black paint.

Thank you. I saw your setup a while back because I was following your restore project. It made me wish that I had more skills to exploit. You did a superb job. As it happens, I don't have a garage at my home. I have a small lot and opted to grow a vegetable garden in the only available space for a garage. I have decided to install the vent on the roof since I have to store the trailer outside and there is already a 9x9 hole that I dread patching with no fiberglass experience. I thought your idea to mount the vent on a wall was an elegant solution.

I can't remember, did you get the water tank issue solved? I stumbled across this today, look at the last water tank on the left... second page, right above the tank probe: http://www.sahararv.com/pdfs/325-334..._WasteLine.pdf
