Hi--I have a 13' Boler purchased through an ad on this website 2 years ago. I am a museum curator and have put together a talk on the history of camping and vehicles called You Can Take it With You: How Cars Changed Camping. I would like to include a bit about the fiberglass rv's but can't find much history. The only thing I did find was a link to the Boler Story through this site. Since the U Haul camp trailers were made in the 1980s I would guess that was the first big time for them, especially since the 1970s gas crisis made people reconsider the larger "land yachts." Does anyone know where some of this history might be found? I've given my talk (with slides) at campground programs a couple times.

I know some of the history of Scamp and Casita but not sure of the details. It used to be in our old posts but we lost a lot in hacking of this forum last January. I'm sure some members know the details and will help you out.

Come on... who knows what?
