Hope this helps.
Interesting!
Which factory was the brochure from?

I guess it depends if the cheese has holes ? Then you'd you'd want to know why some have holes and some don't !

Not really. Knowing which factory built their trailers with fiberglass floors or without a drop in center of the frame in itself explains why some have holes and some do not!

Just nice to know in case someone asked again as to why their Boler does not have a drop down in the middle or it does not have a fiberglass floor

I sure wish that kind of detailed information was available for Bigfoot trailers. That's one way in which Bigfoot really has let owners down. As near as I can tell, they never provided much useful documentation. And now, whichever explanation holds, even what there was is no longer available.

Does not appear to be a Boler. Possibly Paris pacer. Note large kitchen window. Frame is different as is door window. Updated upholstery. Aftermarket cabinetry. Seems to be very nicely done and looks camping ready.

Not a boler ? There's room for debate in that one ! All gloves are off ? Is it a boler ?

I'm sticking with a 79' boler frame and axle. The only thing that's throwing me off with redpect to the shell is the taillight design on the shell ( not the lights themselves) and the slight fiberglass detailing around the window on the door ...

Looking at your pics I would say that the original frame was replaced with a frame to eliminate the step ups and the original axle. That interior is all custom, I would say that the only original part of that camper is the shell as everything else has been modified over the years. The taillight buckets suggest it is not a boler but is a clone as there were a number of fiberglass campers made from the original boler design.


Having said that, it is ONE AWESOME UNIT.


Any owner that has had his boler would know it inside out and the fact that your seller does not know much makes me question a lot of things. BIG RED FLAG.

says wood finish in kitchen is original and so is large cupboard by the door
NO key for door lock....
says frame and LEAF axle are original
My hunch seller hasn't had it long and his history on it is limited.


My questions for ALL:
Is the floor under lino wood ? I thought older ones were wood and late 70's figerlgass?,,,
frame looks beefier, built in Kelowna? Better frame? Leaf axle red flags?
wood finishings covering fiberglass?
Can an L400 blank key can be obtained from vintage trailer and fitted by a locksmith?
Hitch ball weld on bumper for ?.....
Thanks for any input and suggestions to look for when I inspect in a couple of days. I get it next week, if all checks out here !

Rick there have been a few 13' bolers attend our meets here on the coast with no step downs in the middle & the frame and axle where clearly original to the trailer. It was my understanding they were built in interior - probable Kelowna has been suggested.

Agree though there have been lots of modifications done to the exterior and interior of the trailer - who knows when and by who.... pretty sure those taillights for example were not original! LOL

I sure wish my 1978 Scamp 13 had leaf springs!

Oh well...

That is a great looking Boler, and looks well taken care of.
