Alf, I'd love to see the '80 brochure.
Lizbeth, the Document Center contains a number of Boler brochures, including the one from 1980:
Document Center - Trailer Brand Manufacturer - Brochures and Owner Manuals

Donna, I checked that out but the only 1980 thing is a manual which I might add is quite different than my Boler.

I wanna see the sales brochure.

Try BolerRV - Boler Brochures for additional brochures, including one which says it is for 1980.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

[*]1971 to 1973 - Bolers (original 13' model only) are in production by Glass-Fab Industries Ltd. in Peace River, Alberta.
Just to add an update to this list, they were manufacturing in Peace River before 1971.

My 13', [b]1970 unit was manufactured by Glass-Fab Industries in Peace River, AB
It still has the plate on it and I can post a picture if it stops raining...

A correction. I said I knew someone with a 1986, 13', it is actually a 1987 made in Midhurst near Barrie, Ontario, Canada.

Eco produced in Aurora, NE in the early 70's.

It's obviously a Boler clone, but I got no history on it at all.
In Bolerama topic - "Eco" (American made Bolers) - an Eco owner reported that their trailer was made by "Century Manufacturing in Aurora Nebraska". Well, at least that adds a company name...

I just bought a 1970 13' boler. Plate is still on, and indicates it was also manufactured in Peace River AB.

Hi Everyone
My 17' 1700 was also built by Neonex Shelter Ltd. Boler Division, Calgary AB. It is a rear gaoucho with all fiberglass cabinetry. It also has a full fiberglass floor. If I find out any more info I will post it.

Why such a checkered history?

Was it a great idea that was very hard to accomplish (the manufacturing)? I understand it was difficult to keep/attract fibreglass workers with the necessary skills (I think I read this on Bolerama).

My brother-in-law in Wpg said he knew some guys who worked at the plant in the earliest days: no masks, no modern protective gear, etc. (1960s, 70s). Hard, dirty work to make such a clean smooth thing.

Or is it the nature of the market for a Leisure Product, depending so much on disposable income, price of gas, family recreation fads and fashions?

This is the plate on my unit:

So, perhaps this is one of the oldest models still kicking around! Now, since there was no closet door when I bought the trailer, I guess I really don't know for SURE if this is a 1970 or not. That was what I was told when I bought it. Hmm...

Janice: I'm curious what is the serial no. on your 1970 Glass-Fab unit? Is it anywhere near the number on mine? How did you confirm yours is a 1970? Does your closet door have the manufacturer's sticker on it? --Thanks
