Question Boler tail lights outey vs. innie

Looking for some help , I was told I have a 74 boler and from all I can tell that is true except the taillight fiberglass bracket is out instead of countersunk? There is no hope for it to be flopped either from what I can tell it has always been, I thought maybe it was the year but seeing other .74's its not. I cannot post pics crony phone apparently

I seem to remember there was a camper that had that distinctive Boler feature but with the reversed light fitting as you describe.

I just cant find it in the albums right now. I think it may be a Boler variant.

We'd love to see some pics if you can arrange it. Hopefully others will chime in.

I would love to see some pics of your restoration. Mine needs a frame off but can put it off for a year or two - need to get camping.

Sorry the brochure pic was so bad. I found it on line just as my battery was dying and took a screen shot of it. The one who posted it was trying to determine the date of the brochure. Wish I could find them, it would be nice to get a better copy.

We are just now replacing the rear dinette floor. The frame is safe but will def do some mods when we do the frame off. For now we are having the existing axle blocked and rotated to gain road clearance.

I would love to hear about the things that you have done so far in your restoration and what you plan to do as well.

thanks,
Cathy

I believe it came from this thread Love Bug brochure

If you click twice, once on the thumbnail to open it, and then again to open the picture, you'll get a hi-res scan. Not perfect, but better than a lo-res JPG.
