I have owned my 1980 17ft Boler
for four years now. Prior to that I had 78 Trillium
15ft for three years.
No matter what, every year come springtime I take my FGRV in to have a professional safety check.
This year was no different but the cost of the needed fixes and safety checks came in at $1100. My partner was very upset as he paid the bill. He said no to the brake and plumbing work needed.
Even though I thought it reasonable as no work was needed for three previous years and factor in mice had gotten in and chewed through all the electical, $1100 is a lot of money.
All I heard was sell this "thing" and we will pool our resources and buy something new.
On top of the above he bought beautiful new tires
with white rims for it.
I love my Boler
and was very disheartened hearing this comment.
I've been staying in my Boler
for about six weeks now, in Northern Ontario. Steve joined me for the past two weeks and after one week admitted it was a nice trailer.
By week two he was talking about getting the
necessary repairs done! I put a board over the stove/oven when I need counter space and he was not impressed. He is going to build something proper for the job!
My tow vehicle is 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan with a factory tow package, a class 3 trailer hitch and an electic brake system.
Steve admitted it was the perfect RV for my van.
So yahoo! We have a convert.!
BTW my water tank has a slow leak. Any ideas how to fix it?
