1972 Boler - Canadian or American? Fridge optional?

I'm shopping (hard) for a Boler...we're looking at three right now but haven't made the 4 hour trip to see this one yet.

1. Surely, I will offend someone with this wish list item...my apologies, in advance...but I really want one 'Made in Canada'. This one has a plywood floor, which I've read on this Forum, could indicate a Boler American??? Any tell tale signs? I've asked the owner to look for a sticker inside (haven't got a reply yet) but all the cabinet doors have been replaced so I'm not sure if it's still around.

2. Also, the owner cannot tell if the finish is original. I noticed there are no vents for the refigerator so we're not sure if it ever had a fridge - was this optional??? Or did someone remove the fridge, fill in the holes in the fiberglass and give it a fresh coat of paint?

3. I would appreciate very much any / all comments regarding this 1972 Boler...the asking price is $4595. Here's the ad...

13ft Boler in excellant condition.Easy to tow with 4cyl.New in Fall of 2010,2tires,curtains,electric heater,portable toilet,4 leveling jacks.Also included,battery,original awning,radio-tape player,propane gas bottle.Safety inspected and ready to go.Trailer has additional 5in of height for uneven terrain.

Most boler A's that I have seen have had a metal logo plate just under the back window that said boler American. This one has the hard to get metal logo over the window similar to those made in Winnepeg. The trailer looks to be in very good condition from the pictures. If that's gelcoat and not paint then those are original colours. It also has original door handle and it looks like original hub caps. Those are either factory optional upper end cupboards or new retro ones. Very nice! The interior appears to have been painted thruoghout and new cupboard doors and new upholstry. From the pictures it looks to have been well kept and I wouldn't worry about where it was made. If it's as good as the pictures then the price seems reasnable. "IT'S A BOLER!" and that's what counts.

Usually Ice Boxes are standard and Refrigerators are optional. It's that way for Scamps even today.
