Well, we've had all kinds of approaches made on the road and in campgrounds, but this is the first time someone followed us into our neighborhood and to our house as we returned from a 3 day Scamp trip. They have been looking at Hi-Lo's and saw us go by and wanted to find out if it fit in our garage, what it was, and where you get one......

The first time we ever went camping in our Scamp, someone wanted to buy it. We've had several inquiries since then but no one has ever followed us home!

We've had people aproach and ask to view the Boler as we checked into a campground and then follow us to our campsite and wait for us to set up. We've also had several knock on our door at home and ask to look at it. It is amusing but keep it locked up tight, there are some even more brazen who just might hook up and go when your not at home. It has happened.

I too had that happen. I noticed a car making the same turns as I did and then it turned onto my street which is a cul de sac and it was not a neighborhood car. By the time I drove down my driveway and was backing up here came a lady walking down my driveway.

There's a guy we know who just bought a brand new trailer less than 6 months ago,
and someone actually hooked on to it,and stole it last Wednesday from right in their driveway.
They were getting ready to take off that week, and even had their clothes,and food already loaded in it.
Un-beleiveable, but true.!!!

More than ever now,
I'll be making absolutely sure that both tong locks are always on our baby.!!!

Greg when I read your title I thought you had bought another trailer! When we are out front we have people stop all the time and try to buy the Boler. We've discussed it and from now on I'm going to tell them "Yes it's for sale 6500.00." It only takes one sucker......

Lizbeth - and if they blanch at the price, just point out that it IS a classic, and $6,500 is STEAL. To 'Glass enthusiasts / collectors these normally go for closer to $10k. But you GOTTA keep a straight face.

Me too! I was gonna say Congrats! LOL................ Never have had them follow me home, But have had them chase me down in gas stations, mini mart parking lots, Only one scared me, A big ole Montana Mountain Man, running up to me waving his arms.

If someone followed me home, it's probably cause I flipped them the birdie at some point along the drive home. I have no patience so if you drive like a moron, I was put on this earth to tell you.............

I'm with ya robin, stupid people shouldn't drive. I've got a bumper sticker on the back of my truck that says 'sorry for driving so close in front of you". I want to put one on the back bumper of my egg that says, "the closer you get, the slower i go".

I don,t have that on any of my vehicles,or trailer,
however, it ain't long before they understand that,
that's exactly what I,m doing.

I HATE tailgaters.

Makes me wonder if an egg could be a chick magnet.

So soon old so late smart.

I believe that qualifies as a "cougar." Not a reference to the car...
