Boler Year Question

I not sure, but I think that one can roughly judge a Boler's age by it's taillights. Here is a picture of the rear of mine with it's not-so-normal taillights. The lights themselves are not what's interesting me. They are obviously very new. What I'm curious about is the lack of any recess for the lights. Is that something that was only on the VERY early Bolers? Or was it on the later models?

I haven't had the opportunity to clean the blue paint from the manufacturers tag on the side of the trailer above the power plug yet, so I haven't got any idea of it's age. It also has a completely rectangular door window which I've never seen on a Boler either.

Might that be a replacement window? Or was that again something only seen on the very first Bolers? That'd be too cool if it were 1968 or 1969 Boler! Anyhoo, if anyone has any knowledge they'd love to share, I'd love to hear.

Thanx!

Cory

Just did a little Googleogling. And what I was able to determine judging by the pictures, is that the taillight style on my Boler was only in existence in 68 and 69. Anyone have any more firm data to back my supposition?

Preciated!

Thanx!

Cory

Is your Boler by chance one of the flat-topped ones? That is without the raised section of the roof.....'68
No rear bumper and raised roof probably means that it's a '69. What type of door hinges does it have?

I had a 70 and a 71 that both didn't have the taillight recesses, the 70 had no rear bumper and the 71 did. I kinda prefer the no recess, looks real clean when you use flush mount lights

Thanx, James and Brian! So, it's no older than 71 then. My last Boler was a 72, and it had the recessed lights. Eventually I'll have to carefully remove the paint from the manufacturer tag, but that'll have to be done very carefully. I don't want to remove the label paint from the tag when I remove the blue. Any ideas on how to not remove the label paint while removing the blue paint?

Thanx again!

Cory
