1973 boler re-re-re?-re-do???

Hello everyone, appears I am in the right spot to post this so here goes...
I redid the bare essentials when I got my trailer 15ish years ago, Fairly rough. Redid some fibreglass,ignored the wiring rats nest and threw in some taillights and a basic flat four plug. An air mattress for a bed and nothing else... I still refer to it as my “hard tent” in time I braved some of the wiring, added a propex heater, did cushions and curtains... looked the other way on some glaring issues, and generally enjoyed the absolute heck out of it. It’s has earned a redo and so I have been picking away at it over the last year or so. New frame last year, floor replacement as we speak, and more to come.will post some pictures here n there.

Frame

Old frame, bent down 2” on rear left, broken clean off at front with 1/4” plating poorly done from who knows when. Rust holes at mid and rear underside. New frame is same modulus, but 1/8” wall, and addresses some issues.

Locking good. I like your approach. Repairs snd upgrades are good, but camping first!

Must have been a sad trip when this happened

As a metal fabricator... this “repair” was preeeeeety tough to take seriously. I knew going in that the front frames were prone to cracking, and the 1/4” flat bar was likely hiding horrors... it did not disappoint when the body came off.

Got wood?

Old wood out back was rotten on the left side... likely a combination of a minor window leak, some repaired glass in this corner, and being an early model, the wood is fully exposed top and bottom except for the 4” “tabbing” above and below the perimeter. I plan to glass all the wood top and bottom for a full bathtub.
