I'm interested in knowing if bolers have a Date of manufacturer and production number stamped somewhere .Mine only had the information printed on paper that was stuck to the inside of the upper cabinet doors , one in english and french . Would earlier numbered bolers be of higher value .

I don't know that early serial numbers equate to value added, but someone might weigh in here...

Bolers aren't like 1920's Gibson mandolins or anything.

"Value" also includes utility in the case of Bolers. It may be old, but is the frame cracked? Is it swamped in mildew? Is it one with a rotten plywood floor? It seems that utility is a benchmark. The more usable it is, right out of the box, the more it's going to be "worth". Sure, there's the "cult value" in an old flat-top egg, or one with a very low serial number (like 001) but: meh. It's just a camper, after all.

Having said that, I won't part with mine any time soon.

Personally, I'd say "no," at least not across the board of buyers. There are few molded trailer owners that only want original/stock for instance. It's all about good maintenance and quality modifications with professional results. What I'm saying is I wouldn't pay more just because it was an early numbered trailer... of any brand. YMMV
