WOW !

VERY, VERY impressive work ! And, in such a short time. Welcome to the rest of the 250 'currently active' FGRV owners - in Ontario, many of which also do the Boler thing ! Hope to met you personally sometime; when you're not too busy ! (But, I wouldn't dare interfere with your obvious schedule.) Care to share your location area ? - 'Dave' in the 'Highlands'.

You are doing a great job.
I rebuilt my 1976 new to me Ventura last winter and am looking at an old Boler which would need a full restore as you are doing.Great job. Pics are nice.
Keep us posted of your progress.
Go and Enjoy soon.

What did you finish the interior walls with? Did you insulate?
Thanks

Hey Murray! Thanks! Me and my girlfriend scrubbed the interior elephant skin with all sorts of different scrubbers. Used bleach and water, a little spray9 to freshen up the interior walls. It wasn't so bad so I'm pleased with how clean it is now! Not perfect but pretty close.

Full-timing in a 13' Boler seems so awesome to me. I'd love to try it in our Trillium someday, even just for a few months. Good luck in your efforts! You've done a lot of work already.

That looks awesome-wanna work on my Ď78 Burro-bought it 2 months ago -needs work😁. Had it out twice so far and itís been great. How did you fix your vent fan in the roof-guy who had mine before added a new one but screwed up thru the roof - obviously leaks. Looking for options and yours turned out great.

How much weight

Welcome. And great work. In my case i am very conscious of each lb that i add or remove. Did you weigh your boler before and after? With a truck pulling it i expect weight is not an issue though.

That definitely would have been a great idea if I had have done that. I dont think weight will be an issue. I'm pulling my boler with my 1998 tacoma 4x4 v6. I haven't had an issues with it so far. I think the weight that I may have added will be marginal. Since the cabinet doors are very similar in weight. And bed platform adding solar and batteries will add some extra though for sure!

Thank you for the kudos! Trying to make this guy as comfortable as possible so it will be an enjoyable time next summer! Looking at doing about 3-4 months in it.

Thank you! I will be doing my first trip this weekend and I cant wait!

I bought a new fantastic roof fan. Fan-Tastic Vent 801200 ABS LID Vent Create-A-Breeze 3-Speed Manual Crank ABS Smoke Dome https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0027XAN78/..._kfWLBbZ1TESGQ

Then removed the old fan. Used a razor and lots of effort and got rid of the total mess that was the old caulking job. Next dry fit the vent. Made sure it fit ok. Next made a wooden frame out of 1/2 inch plywood. Marked all my holes and drilled them. Used stainless steel #10 machine screws with lock nuts and washers. Next I added butyl tape under the fan and installed it. Added bolts, the carefully caulked it. The interior plastic guard I had to cut about 3-4 inches off. For this I used the blade of a hacksaw. Then screwed it in with wood screws.
