Hey... Kevin... thanks for the pics, your boler looks awesome!

I like the metal tube, mine is just 1/4" thick wood exactly where your metal piece is positioned. I will take some pics soon, been too busy.

The hinges look like there have been replaced since there are the original holes from the original boler hinge to the new modern boler hinge..

I have picked up all new handles in and out from vintage trailer and new trillium hinges (the Kason #139) but just have to figure out what to use as a spacer for the hinge for the door to sit flush? metal spacer? rubber spacer?

Kevin just wondering in your '69 are the bunks in the front lower fiberglass? Mine where originally wood. I have replaced the front with a dinette with the same angles as the back seating areas. I just need to pick up a base and adjustable pole for the table.

I have also added a 30amp service from vintage trailer and electrical box so I can pull up to any campsite plus I am looking for AC to install where the furnace used to be under the sink... trying to keep everything compact.

Thanks

I'm wondering if that is not some of the original ensolite shown in the rolls of this picture you posted earlier.

The Kason # 139 comes in a variety of offsets. You can get them flush, but I would not recommend using either as they are meant for a straight door. Your boler has a curved door. The door and hinges will be fighting each other. That is why later bolers switched to the "ball and socket" type hinges (lack of proper terminology). You can get some of those from Scamp. Where you place them affects the spacing of the door from the belly band.

Boler Hinges

So has anyone know the placement of the hinges?

Has anyone installed Kason #139 hinges on there boler??

They look like a great hinge and well built.

Im impressed with all the knowledge and experience people have with
Bolers !!

Thanks again for all the help with my project

I have a '73 and agree that your trailer is likely older. I notice that you are missing the city water tap on the counter. You also appear to have an older version of the furnace. Another difference - I don't see a track for the awning.

My boler did have an identification sheet glued to the inside of one of the upper kitchen cabinet doors. It specified the dates of manufacture, weight ratings, as well as various other statistical data.

Sink drain?:confused

So when installing the sink drain ... Do most bolers have it going out the side or just straight down under the trailer ?

Has anyone used a electric pump to the sink from the water tank?

Thanks

Hello.

Our Boler the drain to the sink goes straight down through the floor. If that is an issue can always have a bucket to catch the water.
As for an electric pump from the tank it has been done by many but we choose not to mainly additional wiring and the sound is annoying on them. I don't mind the hand pump too much anyway it gets the job done.
