Hi: All... The only painting I did inside was the range hood...rusty metal to hammertone brown and the inside of the rock shield plain white to a sunset scene with acrylic art paints. The ensolite was scrubbed with straight Fantastic spray and a scrub brush followed by a rince with plain hot water. 29 years of grime/tobacco/cooking grease gone. WHEW!!! No wonder it only took 20 min. to sell "Tours Light" the "Silver Billet"

Hi: All... For our water tank I dropped it out from under the dinnette floor. Filled it with a bleach/water solution and let it stand in the sun all day. I replaced all the hoses with new rv. hose and the mounting hdwe. with S/S bolts and nyloc nuts. A new set of bar sink taps, hot side to the tank via(12v.pump), cold side to the waterhose fitting on the trailer. I had to drill out the vent line blank at the water fill cup as it was never done and you can't get water to go in the tank if the air can't get out!!!

I think i'm going to order the cushion covers today. they are $290 + $40 USD shipped to vancouver bc.
I was going to order the matching curtains, but $70 seems like a lot when my mother in law can make some custom ones.
i'll post pics and before/afters' when i'm done

I ended up selecting some material myself and redoing them. It actually wasn't that difficult and easier than i thought it would be { I'm not much of a sewer} . The biggest thing was to get the right needles for the thickness if they vinyl that we were also stiching thru and ended up breaking a few needles.

There is a template on the bolerama site i believe for all the cushions.

Hi All,

I've been using this great forum to get ideas for my newly purchased 75 boler.

I'd like to get new cushions, and I heard (or read) that I can get a new set from scamptrailers.com parts section and it fits pretty much bang on.

can anyone confirm this?

Also, I would like to get a new fresh water tank. will the scamp one work? or any other ideas?

Thanks !!!

I may be a little late here but have you considered calling a local upholstery shop to find out what they would charge for custom cushions? They should have several sample books of fabrics to choose from along with many different grades of foam from very soft to very firm and everything in-between.


As for the fresh water holding tank try your local RV dealer. Just tell them what you're looking for and they should be able to find an exact match. I just replaced the one in our 79' and it was the exact same size and style. If your local RV dealer plays ignorant you can contact Skyline RV here in Lethbridge to see where they order from.

The company may have been Polyrama Plastics. In discussions in other forums the only problem I have heard with shipping is that it is expensive to go long distance and particularly cross-border.

The ERT 8.25 (in the Enclosed Rectangular Tanks selection) may be the under-floor tank - it is only 4" deep, and has a capacity of 8.25 imperial gallons (or 10 US gallons, 37.5 litres). I'm only taking an educated guess here - I have a larger Boler with different tanks.
Since Polyrama Plastics is a Canadian company, the shipping may not be as big a concern.

Hope this helps.

Thanks everyone.

another Q, has anyone besides Paul from ontario managed to fabricate their own front and rear cupboards?
I'd love to just order them, but the shipping gets too expensive.

Quite a few people have, and there have been extensive thread(s) on it, with photos, tips, templates, and etc. I think they were referred to as "upper" or "end" in the other threads, vs. front and back (to aid you in searching).

And yeah, the shipping sure adds up because they have to go truck freight.
