Hi everyone!

Some time ago, I volunteered to take over managing the albums, but until now haven't had much of an opportunity to do anything more with them. I'm now in a position to begin to do some updating and some organizing. I have a number of photos, makes, and models not yet in the albums that I will be adding.

The albums are a great resource for all of us, and particularly for folks who are looking at acquiring a specific make and model of trailer.

I am currently in need of photos of some specific brands and models, and as I get further into the updating, I'll use this thread to let you folks know what I need. Feel free to let me know if you have a really nice, stock example of a specific make and model of trailer, and I'll be sure to look at using your photos in an update. I'm going to try to subset the albums by model, and if there are substantial changes by year, we may look at further subsets of the photos.

We're looking for photos of factory stock, unmodified examples of each brand. We don't need to go overboard with photos, but we'd like to have representative samples of each make and model in the albums; preferably all four sides that fill a photo frame without distractions or background clutter, and four good, wide angle interior shots showing each wall of the trailer and the amenities.

At this point, I'm specifically looking for good interior and exterior shots of the Bigfoot 21s, both front and rear bed models. I'm also looking for good shots of the Bigfoot fifth wheels. Since they're no longer in manufacture, modified fifth wheels are ok, but I'd like to find them as stock as possible.

If you have any of these, and you're willing to take and send photos of your trailer, please let me know! I'm sure I'll be swamped with offers! I have to learn the albums software yet, and the albums are live, so if your photos don't show up immediately, don't be alarmed... it's a matter of finding the photos that best show the features of the trailers and finding available time to use them. The albums may be a mix-and-match of photos from various sources, but we want to show the features of each make and model as best as possible.

Please post here, or PM me and we'll figure out the best way to get your photos to me. Thanks for your help!

Roger

Hi everyone!

I've updated the albums with the stuff I have available to date. I believe we can do much better on a number of makes and models. I need good stock interior and exterior photos for the following trailers:

Trillium 5500
Oxygen
Bigfoot 21... both front and rear bedroom models
Fiber Stream
Perris Pacer
UHaul VT16 Vacationer

And... I know little or nothing about the Boler models, and we have very few examples of them in the albums sorted out. Any help and good photos you have of the various Boler models will also be helpful.

PM me if you can help!

Thanks!

Roger

Hi Roger
Wow! You don't ask for much do you? A stock model after all these years. After all the updates I don't think that there are many left particularly in the area of bolers. If you go to
http://geocities.com/bolerama/
It'll take you to their home page. Here you'll find articles on boler trailers, manuals, updates, written articles, and pictures of trailers, a forum for bolerites, and links to other trailers or groups. Some of this information could or should be added to our resource center. Click on just about everything on their home page. Go for an adventure. Spend a little time and enjoy. A lot of the information ,electrical drawings, updates and helpful hints is useable with almost any FG . After all where would we be without a little help from friends
Jim

Thanks, Jim... yeah.. current photos of a like-new, and unmodified trailer that's only thirty years old shouldn't be a big deal, now should it?

I have actually accumulated a fair amount of 'stuff' and need to spend some time updating the albums again... unfortuately life has a way of filling all that time you intended to do other things with... but I'll get to it, and fairly soon... I promise!

Roger

Hey Roger1
Checking out the home page, and as a Boler 13 owner, I can't help but notice that there are many pictures of 17 footers but only one 13. Makes a guy just wanna' break down in tears, don't it? Is this a reverse psycology thing, or just to make us feel smaller?
