This evening I was in conversation with a car buddy who is also an Egger. He told me of an experience he encountered this afternoon in our local Canadian Tire parking lot.

He had pulled into the lot to go do some shopping and almost tripped over what looked like a brand new BOLER. He wandered over to the rig and saw the driver of the tow vehicle sitting in the truck. My friend asked the driver IF in fact this was a NEW BOLER. The driver indicated YES, in fact it IS a brand new Boler and it is now being made by Scamp in MN. The driver it turns out is a dealer rep and is delivering this NEW egg to some lucky Canuck. The DELIVERED price for this fully loaded BOLER, including roof mounted A/C was in the neighbourhood of mid to upper $13,000 range. This model is the deluxe one and fully loaded he said. The BASE price for the bare bonez BOLER is around $8,000 CANADIAN, delivered!!!

Reace/Tammy, are you 'on line' with this!!!!!

So Doug, is Scamp making a different trailer and it's a Boler. Or are they rebadging the Scamp to a Boler, for sale in Canada?

Sorta like Ford rebadging the ole Ford F-100 and calling it a Mercury for sale in Canada back in the 50s?

Years ago didn't they re-badge Bolers as Scamps plus a lot of others. I guess that maybe turn-around is fair play. That pricing is pretty close to what they advertised the Scamp at at last years RV show in TO.

BUTT, But, but Donna was not the ol Merc p/u built in Canada?? I'm not up on truck history, LOL.

Sorry Donna (et al) thats all the info I have. I was surprised that this was even going on and I don't think anything about this subject has been spoken about on here.

Those prices quoted WERE expressed in Canadian "Loonies/Toonies" and not U.S. "dead Presidents (as some call them), so the American savings are even more apparent....

I had a 54 Meteor. Looked like a Ford but with a Merc dash and a Merc 255 flatty. Like having instant factory customizing, even if they did stick with last years engine. Canadian Dodge came out with the Fargo PU.

If I remember correctly, Scamp one one of the companies licensed to build trailers under the "Boler" name using molds from Canada. Could it be they still had the rights to the name??? Seems kinda long ago for that. They may have reacquired the rights more recently.

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.

Well here's the kicker folks....
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!

I rec'd a personal message fromBrian B-P and he had the forsight to do some digging, whch I never did. I just took my friend at his word (sometimes NOT the best thing to do, right?). Anyhow, 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

Talking

'Guess they gotta be someplace. Those old Boler molds have been all over N. Amer. by the sounds of it. I don't think anyone has seen them for over 20 years. If they were out there someone, somewhere, would be making trailers.
You don't think that someone is just feeding the old rumour mill, do you? This is one that goes round and round. Interresting, EH?
