It's been raining most of the day and I haven't had time to take good photos but here are a few snaps from the last couple days.
You can see the interior roof brace bolted to the cabinets.
Underneath the hubcaps I found what I assume are the original baby moon hubcaps. The spare tire is mounted on the back via 3 stand offs which are bolted directly through the fibreglass body. The spare is a Falcon nylon special, looks like the original as it's pretty much rotten.
I've just about figured out the wiring harness, the previous owner had put a 6 pin square plug. They had also reversed the wires for the right turn signal and the tail light
. I'm going to just put on a 4 pin for now. There are extra sockets inside the tail lights
, maybe for backup lights
?, but I'll leave them disconnected for now. I got the interior 12v lights
working by plugging one of those car starting battery
packs into the 12v accessory jack on the end of the cabinet. Doesn't look like there was ever a coach battery
With this rain we've had I've managed to track down the sources of 6 of the 7 leaks
I've found, above the door drip edge, door weatherstripping, door hinge bolts, front window seal, roof vent, water inlet and somewhere behind the sink backsplash, probably the window.
I just need to get a new spare then I'll be ready to go. Does anybody know if a standard 5 bolt trailer wheel will fit ok? I've got more questions but I'll post them in the problem solving section later.
Kurt, I saw the photo showing your VIN
number, was it on the top rail right next to the tongue? The only tag I've found inside or out is the one above the AC power inlet. There is a newer wheel jack installed right behind my tongue so I may remove it to see if the VIN number stamp is there.
Alf, just got the Combi-Camp last year, still needs patches and waterproofing. We've generally been back country/canoe campers but I figured it would be much easier car camping with our infant son with one of these folding tent trailers. And then this year I discovered the wonderful world of Bolers. Will probably still take the combi-camp on long distance trips due to the easier towing.
Roy, let me know if you're ever around the east end and would like to drop by for a visit.
Looks like we should be able to make it to the BolerRama at Emily park this summer too. Hope to meet some of you there.
