This was posted on buysell.com.

It is listed as a 1950 Boler, made of wood and aluminum. Wondering if anybody is near enough to have a look at it and report back.

Huh!

Bolers weren't made in 1950, not til the late 60s, I believe, and never out of aluminum/wood (fibreglass). Maybe by "Boler" they mean "a small vintage travel trailer", as Bolers are well-known in the prairies.

I had thought til recently that my parents used a Boler for their honeymoon, but the dates are all wrong! I think we have a "Kleenex" meaning-all-tissue kinda thing going on here.

Benny! Don't forget the camera!
This is intriguing, no? Do you suppose someone applied a newer badge on an old camper?

I'll be waiting to hear the results!
Cheers!

It`s a good thing that I made a loop on my trip into the big city today and really wasn`t out of my way more than about 1/4 mile to see this thing......The only reason was my curiousity.......there were no Boler decals on it as promised, (really didn`t expect any)....the person showing it to me was the spouse of the person I spoke to on the phone....the only use I could think of for this would maybe be a small hen house or something like that......I would have hated to have been a prospective buyer and driven 500 miles on spec to see it......we`ll try a picture or two

Also the bottom price is $300.00, or so, CDN...oh, the gang graffiti is gratis,(free)....length is 12 1/2 ft..... the tongue is 2" channel iron and has lasted 56 years and the wheels are 6 bolt and the tires look original bias plies.....after watching the car auction on TV maybe I should buy it and try to flip it for 50 grand as a classic....it has a badge on it like a wing but has been painted over thickly so couldn`t make out the brand....

Hey, Benny,

Thanks for checking it out and posting pics!

What neighbourhood of Winnipeg? Transcona? East K? (Not that it matters.)

: )
