We own a '73 13' Minit, which is most likely a copy of the Boler design (see our website
Chubby Bunny. They were manufactured in Centralia, WA. Does anyone out there own one OR know of someone who does? I'm just interested in looking at another one.

Thanks all!

I thought there was another Minit around, too, besides ChubbyBunny!

The link didn't work for me, it went to the main page and I did put in your names and it still didn't get me to your page. I'd like to see your website again.

Cheers!
Gigi

Chris,

Take the closing parenthesis off your link; it'll work.

Chris, what a lovely family! It just gave me a lump in my throat, it reminds me of days long ago when camping with the family.


The camper is very nice, too. I particularly like the quilted interior walls. It gives it a feeling of coziness. Did you add this or is it original and painted?

Well done, Chris!

Gigi

Gigi,

Thanks for the kind words. We really have fun camping together. The inside is original. It's a white quilted vinyl with a thin insulation layer on the other side. My likes it, but I'm not too keen with it. I'm fixing the out-of-square door, putting in new ceiling, and putting in a laminate floor before our trip to Montana in July. I'll put pics on our website.

I'll try our website link again: http://mypeoplepc.com/members/kellychris/chubbybunny

You, know I remember a guy emailing me last year about his owning a Minit. I can't remember who, when, where!

Take care.

Well, and a great job you and your husband did on your little camper. And your family sure is enjoying themselves in it!

Changing to the square tail lights and the new colour makes for a great "new" look. Would love to see it at a Bolerama gathering.

We do, we do! Captlaz was hurt last (Jan 2013) fighting a fire during a "strike team" He's on light duty, but now not nearly enough time to do a rebuild. We'll have to hire help.

Love your site and it gives us hope. Our FJ was bought just to pull our dear "Minit." We still have lots of hope of traveling off to see our children all over the rural US.

Where too start? Lichen covered with 'Minit' leaks, crooked door and so low the back-end may drag when hitched. We haven't lifted out FJ.

Still reading and dreaming of the places we'll go.

Thanks all!
EDIT: total rewrite!

I'm really confused...I actually posted to direct you to a thread pointing out an "error" in the location-of-manufacture...but I see now that you're the one who posted the link I was sending you to!



The I.D. plate below says "Hawaiian Gardens, California, Centralia Road... image copied from this thread.

So which was/is it- California or Washington????
