Height of Boler kitchen counter?

Heya,

I am in the process of rebuilding the kitchen in my boler and could use the measurement between the original countertop and the floor as a reference.

After I pulled it apart I measured 31" to the raised floor + 6" to the actual floor for a total of 37" this was after it was pulled apart and salvaged of its fiberglass for other repairs.

Any boler owners who can help me out? Would love a double check as I don't won't our stovetop to be squat height or tippy toe height when cooking haha.

Thanks all!

36" has for many years been the standard height used for kitchen counters. So if you are comfortable working at a normal kitchen counter in a house that will work. An inch or so higher of lower is not going to make a big difference.

Have a question, our Boler's kitchen counter has a decided sag in the back against the wall, could you tell me how the back of the counter is supported, am guessing that it is a wood cleat fixed to the wall that the counter sits on. Cannot figure why it should sag when there is no apparent damage, perhaps it was built that way.
PS 36" is pretty much correct, an inch up or down wont matter, but if you get too radical you will limit your resale customers to either taller or shorter folk.

Hmm, Original kitchens are riveted directly to the body of the trailer. Have you checked to make sure there is no rivet that has come loose?

Our kitchen was held ridged by a piece of 1/4" plywood that was fastened to the left edge of the drawer cabinet underneath the stove that sat on the raised floor of the kitchen. I would suggest opening the cabinets and seeing if there is anything out of place perhaps

Thanks

Thanks for double checking folks,

Our new counter will measure 37.5" from ground up and won't cause a ruckus.
