Breazy, welcome! What a nice trailer you have! You did a wonderful trade on the new door window...smart. I love the look of your upper shelves, when you have time, some of us might like to know how you made them, & how they are attached. Lots of good and informational folks here you will enjoy them and your adventures in the little camper!

D Davis, I really have to thank Trilium/Outback trailers in Calgary. We brought our trailer into them when we 1st bought the boler. I saw these shelves on another boler in the garage and they ordered them in for us. I believe we paid approx. $80 each.
I really do love these birch shelves. It is source of my inspiration to eventually change all the doors to the same birch look.
I do have plenty of carpenters and woodworkers in my family so I would image these to be an easy creation. I will however make note to try and upload some images of how they attached it to the fiberglass. Basically it is a reinforced wood block glued to the fiberglass.

Donna thank you for the link, that is exactly what I am trying to accomplish.

I was in a rush for the long weekend so I did manage to make something. I went to the hardware store and bought a " wood & 1x2 for the legs. They cut everything to size so when I came home all I had to do was drill the pieces together (the cost was $25).
The wood basically slides under the bed when we are not using it (the bed is permanently set up). I set the legs so the 2 was running parallel to the bed. This way it really did not get in the way during the day. I also lucked out because I saved all the memory foam cut from the mattress we got last week. The memory foam is 19 by 38??? so I made two. This way when the foam can double as a backrest during the day.

This was just a quick solution for this camping season.
I do want to find a more permanent & cleaner looking extension. Something that does not change the original look of the boler but can still accommodate the extension. I am about to go on a trip so I am also making note, that I should take pictures of my crafty bed extension.

Our first experience with the lightweight factor was when we had difficulty parking the trailer with the deep snow. I looked over at my husband and asked if he wanted to try to back it up when he suggested that we pick it up and manually & move it.
Well, moments after we did just that, I think we both lost our breath laughing in amazement.
Since this March we have done multiple upgrades and alterations. We have even managed to already do our 1st trip out to Banff in April. I’m looking forward to sharing our experiences and learning about all of yours too!

Thanks ahead of time!

That is why we love our bolers when we brought ours home; was able to unhook the propane tanks and pickup the tongue and wheel the trailer into the back yard Carole told me which way to turn (no wheel on tongue had to hold it up) was a great experience. Hope you are having a lot of fun with your boler.
