I did a bunch of web searches including across the Scamp site and I can find nothing about a new Boler being manufactured - mind you, most of these trailer companies tend to update their sites infrequently.
That's for sure! When you go to Scamp's parts store page they are still saying "Check back in early July". Of course if you email them, they'll quickly send a parts/price list. -Dan

It looks like yet again this Old Fart has Chicken Plascenta on my face. Let me rephrase that... Egg on my face, and YES, the YOLK seems to be on me!
It's OK Doug. Might want to get someone to look at that leg of yours, though. Looks like it's been pulled hard.

You don't think that someone is just feeding the old rumour mill, do you?

Possibly, yet there is a post here by Alan Nelson, saying he seen a boler clone that was made in Mexico City.

Now ... does anybody know if Sandor Dusa (who started up boler with Ray Olecko) was Mexican in origin?

Howdy.....Sandor Ducha is/was Hungarian and he and his wife came to Canada after the Hungarian revolution......he lived only a half block from where the Boler factory was on Dufferin Ave in Winnipeg, Manitoba.......He worked for Kildonan Canoe in Winnipeg prior to getting together with Ray Olecko.....I`m familiar with this because he and his wife lived in a rented suite at my mother in law`s home as did my wife and I....and I used to talk with him a lot prior to the Boler workings.....after he was working with Boler, I only saw him a few times as I built a home outside the city and he also had moved...also I had no interest at all in the funny little egg shaped trailers that apparently evolved from the fiberglass septic tanks that Ray Olecko had invented.....I eventually lost all contact with him and don`t know if Sandor is still alive......funny thing is that I came full circle and now have two Bolers that I use depending where I go to camp......Benny

Interesting story Benny!

Now you have me wondering ...
That is the 3rd spelling for his last name I've seen.

Have you ever tried trackin him down now that you are a glass man?

Roy

Hi: I just checked "The Boler Story" over on the other site...and the reporter spelled the mold makers name Sandor Dussa.

I happened to spot a Boler at San Simeon Creek SP Fri Oct 1st. It was occupied by a nice couple from Alberta. It was red and white and they said it was a 1981. They were pulling with a Buick cute-ute. It looked like a 13 footer to me. They knew of this Forum, but were not regular readers of it.

What would be the appeal of a new Boler? Should it be a replica of an early vintage or a later, improved version? Would it be better than a Scamp or any other brand currently made? I can appreciate the benefits of a small camper in general. Just curious.

BTW, if you go to San Simeon Creek SP, be prepared for hungry raccoons, four at once. And they can definitely open an ice chest!

Personally, one thing I really like about the 70's trailers was the 'character'... the trailer colors, the layouts etc.. I find the newer trailers a bit bland.. generic I would say. But I also prefer old Victorian style houses over new vinyl boxes =)

Maybe a nostalgia thing, eh? I'm glad someone knows where the molds are.

Canadian Dodge came out with the Fargo PU.
I was in Istanbul in 1990 or 91, and there was a Fargo dealer with the Chrysler pentagon displayed. I should have gone in and asked where they were made.

According to this site, all Canadian Fargo trucks were manf in Canada, and the rest were made in USA for domestic and foreign markets.

In this ad, the Fargo/DeSoto/whatever van looks like a Sprinter...

Well here's the kicker folks....
Brian contacted Scamp(Eveland's Inc.) and asked about this 'Bolor thing' and it seems it was bogus info, as no one at Scamp knew ANYTHING about a NEW Bolor least of all ANY deliverys into Canada.

Thus, I stand CORRECTED (on my other foot), sorry for the confusion
Well, that begs the question . . . just what was it you saw? How was it identified? Did it have decals? or a painted on name? anything that said Boler? Very strange
