Hi,
My husband and I have been looking at Bolers for a while and just came across an ad for a '77 Boler. Very few details in the ad, except to say that it's in good condition. We've never seen a Boler quite like this (bubbled out over propane tank- see attached photo) and are wondering what model this is, and if there are any particulars about this type that we should know about. I tried googling it, but couldn't find any pics of similar trailers. Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Looks like a custom addition.
Sure would be an attention getter.

ooooh a mini-5th wheel! I wonder if that's really real or a Photoshoped and there's a scam going on. Sure hope you can check it out and let us know the particulars.

Seller has confirmed what we all guessed, that it was modified- 2 owners ago. They've enjoyed the extra bit of space inside.

I think we're going to hold off though, we've had our hearts set on an "egg" for quite a while so we're going to take a chance that something closer to original comes up in our area and price range. Before anyone asks, no, we didn't actually see it in person- it's about a 5 hour drive for us and since we've decided to pass it just wouldn't make sense to do a "drive-by"

If anyone else is interested, it's in NS, price is reasonable, and the pics look good (there are interior shots in the original ad-definitely not photo-shopped). It's not my ad so I don't want to take the liberty of posting it here, but I will send a link to anyone that's interested. It was only posted this week and as of last night hadn't been sold yet.

I sure would like to see the photos, and I bet a bunch of other people here would too. If the trailer is posted for sale on the Internet (generally considered to be "public"), and especially if it's still for sale, I shouldn't think the owner would mind if you posted a link to the ad here.

Many of us are just curious, but it could easily lead to a sale.

Thank you,

Raya

What is up in that area? It looks like it might be a sleeping area.

In response to all the posts, here is the link to the ad:

I haven't seen this Boler personally, but the pics should answer some of the questions (i.e. what is in there?). As of two days ago it was still for sale.

So I'm thinking that if you put the front bunk in the "up" position, then maybe the lower (seat) cushion fits on that bump-out shelf and gives you a wide bed*? That would be pretty neat as you'd have a full-sized dinette, a couch, and a wide bed without having to change the table. It's kind of cute, too. I guess the person who modified it just moved the front forward and then added in a band of fiberglass. Maybe they used Ensolite from the closet or storage areas to patch it in.

I think it's pretty neat!

*Otherwise it seems like a lot to go through just for a shelf, but who knows?

Raya

PS: Thanks for posting the link, amandarussell.
