Trailer: 1970 Boler
Posts: 374
I was driving around Hope, BC showing my wife some of the Boler trailers I have found hiding in town.

I drove passed this one before and never noticed the design until the other day...

Its a FLAT ROOF Boler. According to Boler's inventor Roy Olecko (interview on the Bolerama web site) the flat roof indicates it is one of the original 100 units ever produced. This was in 1968!!

I have not yet knocked on the door of the house but will this week....I am curious to see what the VIN is. Maybe its 001 !!

I was able to verify it is in fact a Boler. You can see on the rear where the "Boler" emblem once was by the outline in the dirt. Original round hub caps are there and it has the tail lights like my 1970 model (not recessed). Seems to have an aftermarket rear bumper added as I am not sure if the early models even came with bumpers. The side wondows may not be originals either.

I will post some more pics once I can get closer. Here are some for now:

Very cool!

Put on your white hat, saddle up the white horse, and rescue that poor thing! Looks like you could get it for the proverbial song if you needed a project.

Nice find.

Kurt,

just knock on the door, the owner is probably wondering who the crazy guy with the camera is. before he gets out a shotgun to check you out give him a chance to show you the trailer.

course, in BC people don't carry shotguns!

Wow! I've only ever seen two of these rarities.
Also is the tree carving still around town?

I plan on knocking on the door sometime this week.

The carvings are still here, more than ever now.

I'm told there's also a flat-roof Boler for sale for $800 in Remsen, Iowa. I'll have photos to post next week, and a phone number if anyone's interested...

That should last about as long as a snow flake on a hot grill.

I want it, but don't know if I can be first there with money in hand.
