"The green one seems to be sitting better than the yellow..."
that is because it is up on supports. I like the green interior wood but it appears the yellow has a refer and dual propane and the green just an ice box.

The yellow one is still for sale...the inspection is due in July.

Look at it or send someone you trust with the check list. The check list helped me knock $700 of the asking price of the Ventura I just bought. I would never buy anything without looking first.

for that money it should be safety inspected. too bad you missed the green one...it was too shiny..the seller was trying to hide somthing???

i missed the stands!! but still check the frame, and axle.

what ever you find, i am sure you will love it.

Buy it! I bought mine a year ago this week, and even though I had to learn to tow, back up, find a great mechanic and do minor repairs, I've never regretted buying it. Everything is fixable. You could offer a little less if that's what comparable Bolers are going for, or if you think there might be a costly repair or two. Right off, you need to grease the wheel bearings, throughly inspect the frame for rust, and check the electrical and propane. It takes a while to figure everything out, but once you do, you'll understand why these little trailers are just the best camping vehicle out there. If I was closer, I'd go with you! Enjoy! Jamie

I hope you get it, not only because it is almost identical to mine, I have a larger door window, but because it is in fantastic shape with original parts and colors. You can do anything you want to make it yours! Yellow Bolers are the best! Keep us posted.

They will not accept less than $5000.

We will need to fix at least three leaks...have it inspected...probably replace the axle to install brakes (in order to tow with our VW Golf)...maybe reinforce the frame...replace rivets in the belly band...etc...sounds like at least $1000 right away...

...not sure if it's worth it

Things happen for a reason Melanie. I don't think this trailer is meant to be yours. When I bought my trailer, as soon as I SAW it, I fell in love with it. I don't think you're feeling the love...

I agree, Donna......I should wait for a green and white Boler...1974 (the year I was born)...

So what are the logistics...

Do you give the seller a deposit somehow to hold it, pay for it somehow in full without seeing it or travel 8 hours hoping it's still for sale when we get there?

How do you transfer registration/ownership...any Canadian people out there buying from a different province? I suppose it needs to be a weekday in order to change ownership.

How can I make this happen?

I would mail a ck to hold it as a deposit, not to be cashed but as "good faith" and then take a cashiers or bank check for the total, get a contract of sale and go pick it up.
