I just laid down 900. for a 13 ft '71 Boler which has been in the same family for at least 25 yrs. It looks like it will need some TLC in style and clean up, but for the price! When the woman told me the name of the trailer she said a Bole which was made in Canada. I was pretty sure the title just eliminated the 'r', and was right. I cannot wait to get my hands on it and dig in, but the snow and ice in MN has me holding off picking it up. This joins my '73 Bell and '73 Compact Jr. A few yrs back I had sold my 13 ft '81 Scamp due to the 6'5 boyfriend, lost him and now replaced the Scamp with a less expensive egg. Anyone know how switchable parts are between a Boler and a Scamp as the Scamps are made close to where I live thus very accessible?
Thanks, Upnorth6

When you pick it up we need to see some photos.
Good luck and have fun with it.

Congratulations on your purchase !, What a great price ! Scamps are a near twin of the boler . The Scamp manufacturer used the same mold a couple years after the boler took flight and as the years progressed so did minor changes . You should have no problem interchanging parts .

Men are like buses, another one will be along in 15 minutes But an egg, now that's priceless! There's a few things Scamp has that are a bit different than the Boler... door hinges are three bolt for instance on a Scamp. But remember, other than the shell, frame and interior parts everything else is manufactured by some other company... like refrigerators, awnings, windows, axles, vents, furnaces, A/C, etc. Scamp is a good place to get gasket material, etc.
