Trailer: 1975 Boler 1300

Seen this 17 foot Boler during the Thanksgiving holiday on Manitoulin Island parked in a pasture. Took a couple of shots (thinking it might be restorable). After talking to the owner who happened to be working in his garage at the time, I found out that there was no way to restore this thing. The owner of the trailer also owns and operates a faily large contract company. This is their tool trailer believe it or not. He allowed me to take a closer look (didn't take any pics), but the interior is almost completely ripped out. Sad to see that this camper wont be used for anymore camping...

You have to remember that "it's just an old trailer" to most folks. Everything is junk and worthless before it's antique and priceless! If almost all of a specific gizmo didn't get tossed, those remaining would never have value! For example, who would have thought in 1930 that useless old horse harness staves that were lying around and cluttering up livestock barns would be worth $100 each by the mid-1980's? I have no idea what one might be worth today.

An antiques dealer bargains for junk, but sells 'rare' antiques.

Give it some more time. My first fiberglass travel trailer was an old gutted out Compact Junior that I bought from a carpet installation contractor.

That Boler just needs the right tinkerer to come along when the present owner needs some cash more than he needs a tool trailer.

Roger, if you are talking about the hames that go around the collar to fasten the harness to, they are available both new and used right here in our local area of East Central Illinois from the Amish harness shops. Harold
