I recently posted in the new users section about a Boler
I just purchased... a gamble relative to the fact that it came without a registration
. I figured it was worth the risk as there is a CA Lic Plate on it (I'm in CA) and I was told that this plate came with the last purchase, so hopefully I can track down what I need in order to get this registered in my name.
But I don't want to leave things to chance regarding just the plate so I started searching for the VIN
. I can find nothing on the frame and there are no stickers that I'm able to find anywhere inside but there are two metal stickers dead center on the front that have been painted over.
I got some pretty fine grade sand paper and although a little aggressive at first, I spotted a number on the upper, smaller, of the two stickers right about in the center of the sticker. I started to lighten up on the sanding and I'm able to read a few of them, so now comes the question.
The number looks like "2227 75". I'm not sure about the first "7" or the space between the 7's is correct, or in other words, for sure it reads
"222 75". I'm a little nervous about getting more aggressive with the sand paper and I'm now using a green pad and some soap and water to try and clean it up more, but even that is getting a little risky.
Does anyone have any info on how Boler
numbered their trailers? Does the above number make sense as a VIN
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
After a little more delicate wet sanding on the sticker it looks like "A2227 75" Also, it is a Boler
13' Special Edition model (if that helps)... And man-o-man, does it need some TLC!
