Eh John I see by your pic that you have the 3 pane side windows. All the Canadian ones I have seen had the 2 pane windows. Where was your made? Must be one of the first made in the USA.

By what I can see in the 2 pics you provided my best guess would be a very late 1968.

Based on what Rick said I think 68 or 69 my 71 has the bucket tail lights but not sure if it was manufactured in USA or Canada

Rick the upper kitchen cabinet was cut in the lower left corner to make it fit so I thought a PO had replaced the original one with a larger one but according to Hehr both windows have stamped numbers corresponding to 1971 so your guess is as good as mine on that

All Canadian manufactured ones had the serial number tag riveted on the body midway down the trailer just below the belly band on the drivers side. But many have been removed or the rivets rotted away and are not there any more.

The body and frame are in great shape but the inside needs some love. Excited to begin the journey

Who knows what PO's had done. Mine is a complete custom now as all that is original is the shell and the closet beside the door and even that has been modified. Queen side bed in the back and L shaped kitchen in the front. Built for 2.

If you need any advise just let me know I have had 2 Bolers completely apart and rebuilt them. The first was co-owned with my son and now gifted to my son and the second is still not completely finished, but are they ever done? There is always some mod to make it better.
