Everyone has their own goals, and thus their own decision, and that's great.
One factor to keep in mind is that "modified" does not
mean "improved". Before we bought our Boler
we looked at another one of exactly the same model, with twice
the asking price justified by a long list of modifications. All but one of the mods reduced
the value of the trailer to us, not because we valued authenticity, but because they were badly done or inappropriate for our purpose. Some would be difficult to "undo", most notably the peeling and ugly paint
over the original gelcoat. It would have been far better to have left the exterior alone, because now the only way to make the thing look good would be to completely strip, sand, and repaint.
