I got an email this morning that shocked me. A fellow boler
owner sent me some pics of her boler
with the front end sitting on the ground. Her frame cracked in the usual spot where they all seem to break. I just got off the phone with her and she is ok and she said it broke while she was off the highway and going real slow.
It was just checked at the Rally
we had in St Malo 2 weeks ago and looked ok but people these trailers are 40+ years old. I would suggest that even if it looks good to have it reinforced anyway. Now that camping season is coming to an end for some of us it might be a good time to head to your welder and have it fixed even if it looks ok. Better safe then sorry. I would hate to know what would have happened to my dear friend if it came apart on the highway.
This does not just apply to bolers. I would check all our older little trailers as I have heard it can happen to Scamps, Venturas, Trilliums and proballly many more.
Please people lets all be Safe out there.
