I may be getting the opportunity to getting a 1973 ECO Trailer. Having a hard time finding any info on this trailer. I see some pics on this website, can anyone point me to any other location for information. I plan to take this trailer on as a summer project.

thanks

Hmm, it looks like a Boler knockoff from the pictures on this site and on this one . Its also mentioned as a Boler clone in this thread . This should mean that all the Boler information on this site applies.

Interestingly, I could only find references to a 1973 model.

I'd be interested in knowing where it was manufactured. Hopefully one of these has a city on it somewhere. They look to have a plastic emblem located under the windows like the Boler American. Maybe that has a location on it.

I'm thinking that this is one of the offshoots of the Boler American Company that Started in 71 and ended in 72 only producing a 1972 model.

I have a picture that shows:

ECO
Aurora
Nebr

As build company and location. I have seen the ECO pics online and looks identical, will take allot of work to fix up. It has been sitting and leaking for years.

Please post the picture, even better yet email it to the Moderator Roger H and he can post into the ECO album for ease of others finding the information.

amado...jeff here in Silt, Colorado....have owned my own ECO for 12 years now, ECO which is an acronym for three brothers from Aurora Neb. their names may have been Eugene, Charlie and Oliver, not the current ECO trailer brand and definitely pre-dates the ECO-logic era, however these little gems own ALOT of character ! My vin. # sez it was made in 1970 or 71. the only thing I see that is similar is the Boler. I will attempt to post some older fotos of unit, which just till this past week got a well deserved paint job....either way I'am sure you will hear more stories from their past.....LOLuck...take your time and Enjoy

I like the color, I'm still trying to convince person that owns trailer they should part with it to me. I look forward to the first colorox bath it recieves. Keep the pictures coming.
