Vanguard BC built Neonex Boler Late 70's?

Hey Everyone,

Thanks you so much for all your help and info on my new trailer...! (Previous post "Dragged boler out of blackeberry bushes") Nice to know more about what I got. So far so good with cleaning it up, outside washed up nice, and have an ozone generator working on the inside for a few days before I get in there to tackle that. Getting a neat trailer for $500 bucks is kinda fun, but I'm sure it will have its challanges as well... First one is to try and find a cover for the driver side lower access to the fridge as it is missing. Any advice??? Also small plastic door on the passenger side is cracked, not sure what it is for... fresh water fill maybe??? Passenger side slide hinge for the front window cover is broken as well. If anyone knows where to find these part and other it would help alot. Thanks again! Kevin.

Also if anyone has this model and has some pics thatd be great, be nice to see some ideas for the interior as well!!!

One note on the ozone generator: I'm not sure where the line is drawn, but I know that lengthy use of an ozone generator can deteriorate rubber. So... hoses, rubber window gaskets (front and rear windows), etc.

Raya

PS: I can't see which passenger side plastic piece you mean, since the photos both show the driver's side; can you post a close up/photo please?

Kevin I posted to the BC fiberglass Eggs Facebook page asking if any of them have the same trailer if they could take a look at your post here. Hope one of them sees it. This post may want to me moved to the help section though.

One note: Are we sure Vanguard was in BC? I know I linked the two, but then I thought I read later they were in one of the other western provinces. I suppose it's possible they had multiple locations.

It does say Winfield BC on the plate on the passenger side right behind the door...

Raya my understanding is they were built in Kelowna BC although as Kevin has said it states Winfield which is just outside of Kelowna.

Hi: Kevin J...That Boler looks like one of the rare 15' Bolers. The tail light insets are the same as the 17' ones. It's hard to judge the length from the pic's due to the extra long window on the side but it sure looks like it cleaned up nice!!!

Kevin is it possible that your trailer might be a 15' - the pictures you first posted made me wonder about it - then I saw this old post with some photos of a 15' that made me wonder again.

Okay, BC it is

I think the Vanguard Bolers all had a similar color scheme and those "tombstone" taillights (plus the other unique features mentioned in the other thread), so that may be making it look similar to the 15-footer.

This Boler is a 13 and not a 15, going by the photos and by what the owner said in the previous thread.

I've also seen photos of other 13-footers made by Vanguard, so this is not the only one, although they seem relatively rare.

Actually Raya you are right if its a 13' it is not the only one. There are still a number of the 13' around here (B.C. where they were made) as well as some 17's. Take a look at the gallary of our past meets at https://sites.google.com/site/bcglasseggs/ Its the 15' thats a rarer sight.

It wasn't actually Kevin who indicated it was not a 15' so there is a slight chance it may be. Pictures are hard to tell from.

Kevin, your 'drug from the brambles' Boler bears a marked semblance to a Boler once used as a 'Night Guard's quarters' that was located toward the south end of Abby near/at a Skate Boarders shop !!!!
