Our was built in Winnipeg, I have no idea if they all had the fiberglass floors.
What I can tell you is they didn't bother matching the floor color with the exterior, mine is yellow/white and it came with a green floor. I have seen a green/white one with a yellow floor.. LOL

Leaf spring cheaper option for sure. You'd want leaf for the easy maintenance I'm guessing ? If I get this boler, or whatever it is lol , think I'm name it The Chameleon ! Lol
So what about stress of leaf vs torsion on the shell, frame etc....?

Shouldn't be any difference on stress either on the body or frame.... the dampening rate will be different (not better or worst just different) and of course the ride height will be more with leaf springs compared to the torsion axle.

I have seen a lot of Bolers in my time and have never seen one without the step up, but then there is a first time for everything. It is clear by the pics that the frame and axle have been replaced. The side windows don't look right for a boler either. I am sure it is a clone of some sort but with all the time that has gone by it may be hard to ever find out what it originally was.

I still think it is ONE AWESOME CAMPER what ever it is.

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

Hope this helps.
So what is "Tylon"? Their brand of ensolite?

Yup. Me thinks the bumper has been modified for a spare tire.

My '74 was built in WPG as well.
All fiberglass one piece floor and was hand laid up to the lower half as best I can tell. lower half all Pumpkin.
The floor and lower half can be different colour gelcoat because they are from different molds.
