Any Interest in a 1978 Boler 17'

At the end of the month I'm meeting my daughter and grandkids in Tahoe for a protracted trip over to the Cali coast and up along the Oregon and Washington coasts. I had been looking out for a small fiberglass camper for her so we could caravan around to the sites. I found this 78 Boler 17' locally and all was great until she rechecked her engine and found out she only has the 4 cyl Kia Sorrento rather than the 6 cyl she thought she had. Needless to say her 1600 lb tow limit isn't where it needs to be to haul a 17'. Instead I am going to have to find her a lightweight 13' fiberglass (brand will be a surprise) in the future. For the time being I have a small popup truck bed camper I can put on and still tow the Oxygen. Although not optimal the package will work for this trip.

Now down to the Boler. Simply put I have no use for it. I paid a fair price and put brand new wheels and tires on it. It had been parked in a back yard unlicensed since 2005. I was going to remodel it and then sell it but I really don't have the time to take on another project. If anyone here who appreciates vintage fiberglass trailers and might be interested leave a comment or send me a personal message. I don't have the paperwork back yet from the DMV but I expect it at anytime. With what I have in it I'll need around $5500 US to break even. Pictures will be coming when it is officially up for sale.

If it's in decent shape, that's a reasonable price for a model I've always liked.
It should sell quickly. I look forward to the pics.

Yes, I always liked this model also. Very roomy, lots of storage, big bathroom.
Towed like a dream bringing it home.

I need to do a lot of projects on my Bonair Oxygen to make it a bit more livable or I'd remodel it and sell it for more. This way whoever gets it can do it as they like.

A few outside pics

Okay here are a few outside pics. Inside will come in a bit. I did just receive the title in the mail so I will be switching this over to a for sale ad starting tomorrow.

Slow down Rita, lol I know how difficult it can be finding one of these little gems. I am much more interested that the Boler goes to a good and loving home where someone will refurbish it and keep it on the road for a good many years of fun. Unfortunately, although I have a winter house in Boulder City Nv I, and the Boler, are currently north of Spokane Wa at our lake house. If this is not a problem for you then we can try to work out the details. Let me know.

I was in one at the Maritime vintage fiberglass rally a few years ago. It was one of the nicest, roomiest 17'ers I've seen. The layout was similar to my Bigfoot.

I agree very roomy. The back has a fulltime bed with a bunk above and the front has a full size dinette. Tons of closet space.
