I just came across this ad, does anyone know anything about this line of trailers? It looks like its molded with a pop up roof, but I don't recognize it. Called K-Line.

It has come up at least once before as another Compact clone. Not very common, apparently!

Looks like the pop-top roof section in this new one for sale sprouted some side wings (whereas the one in the thread Donna linked to has a roof like the Campster, that does not extend all the way from side-to-side. The outer sections don't match the curve of the roof... wonder if someone added something? Or maybe just a different mold.

On the other hand, the "hole" in the roof looks the normal width from the inside, if you peer up into it from the kitchen photo...

Interesting.

Interesting.... another variation. This K-Line has a full width pop top. Would like to see how that works. Larry

It does look awfully similar to the many Hunter sibling variations, though the age is way too young, don't you think?
And I agree, the poptop looks much wider than the usual Hunter sibs...
Still, wouldn't be a big surprise, it seems that Hunter sent their shells all over the country! hehe Would love to hear more about it...

Two guesses on the roof... either they replaced the pop-up with a cover from something bigger (pop-up van, maybe) or they widened it and put a child's bunk up there? You'd think the latter would have been mentioned, though. Too bad there is no picture of it raised.

Thanks good info. If I get a chance to look, will let you know what I find out. It's too small for us, we need to have at least another bunk for child, I need a side door so we can bring bikes, and I really prefer a fridge. But it looks very intriguing, maybe I can persuade my inlaws to buy it for their travels.

SherLyn: we have a compact Junior and when we take our bicycles, I am so glad we have a straight access via the back door. Don't let the back door be a deciding factor until you have tried it.

Hello Bobby and Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that I will be the new proud owner of this wonderful trailer when I pick it up next week. I was able to get some photos from the current owner of the top up to give an idea of what it looks like.

Once I get it home, I will get a better idea and photos. I intend of finding more information on the top and weather or not it is original or not. Best thing is for me to check the tag by the rear door of the trailer and see what the model number mark is. The other k-line on this thread that Donna D had linked to was a mark 1. Perhaps this is a mark 2. Also I will be confirming the year of production.

I can't wait to pick her up. The trek back will be a long one and I am preparing the list of what to bring with me. Any help from fellow FGRV'ers who have done a long trek to pick up a trailer are more than welcome.

I'll keep you posted.

Aha! It opens like a VW bus camper top (or a Miti-Lite top). Neato!

Congratulations!

There have been two or three really good threads lately on what to bring when one picks up a new trailer "a fur piece" away, so if you search them you'll get some good lists of tools and things to think about.

One was Vickie's recent thread about her Perris Pacer; one was Lizbeth's thread about a Bigfoot 5th, and the third was from when Bryan L was thinking about buying a trailer far away.

I think I posted in all three of them, if you want to add that as a search parameter (I don't have time to search right now as I'm on the way out the door, or I would try to post links for you).

Again, congrats and have a great trip

I drove 3500 miles and crossed the Canadian border to find my Boler and bring it home

Raya

As a newbie, this will be an adventure and I'm learning a lot from the forum. The forum has given me a lot of insight when I was researching on the type of trailer to look for. Good luck on your search.

Charles,

I just noticed you're going to Winnipeg - that's where I picked up my Boler

Just in case you need it, there is a great hitch shop on the west side of town. I can't remember the name but it's west of the outer beltway loop, just about at the Westernmost "equator" of the beltway. I think the name was pretty straightforward, like "So-and-so's hitch shop" or something like that.

I couldn't find a 4-prong-flat car hookup to 7-prong-trailer adapter anywhere there (Wal-Mart, Canadian Tire, etc.) and a woman working at Canadian Tire tuned me in to the hitch shop. She let me use the phone at CT (my cell doesn't work in Canada) to call them, I let them know what I needed, and they made one up for me and had it waiting when I arrived a half hour later ($17 Canadian). Nice folks

Raya
