Front window cover

Hi all :wave

My 1970 Boler (picking it up tomorrow night !!!! :cblob ) doesn't have the front window cover.

Are the windows and covers the same for different years, or do I have to look specifically for a 1970? Also, my tow vehicle is a Rav4. They are just about 6' high, so will needing the cover be a big issue, or will the wind and bugs pretty much sail over the top of my boler?

Hi Lainey
I would not worry about it to much.They are hard to find.On my new 72 --13ft Boler it also is missing the cover.Leave both front and rear curtains open and you can see right through from your rear view mirrow.
Don't forget to check your frame very carefully. Mines bad.
:wave

thanks Ches

Good point about the frame. I did read about the frame problems they had early on and I will have my neighbour (a welder) look it over for me when I get it home. On a side note, if it's not looking good, do you think it'll make the trip home (140km)? :u

If I can get someone to part with their window cover, what would be a fair price?

bugz

The window cover keeps off the bug juice so you don't have to wash it so often and that minimizes the scratches on the plexiglass. Also it keeps the interior cooler while rolling. Make a pattern and have Tap plastics or do it yourself from a piece of white plexi. It doesn't have to be fiberglass with that black edge trim. Being flat should be ok as long as it touches only the rubber window gasket it should curve enough when clamped closed.Scamp sells the clamps for $18.00US. Keep a little WD40 on them because they aren't plated (bummer).

I removed the front window cover of mine when I removed and cleaned the window. I took Butercup on the road before I got the cover back on. as I'm getting ready to back my Tom says do you want to watch me (he being my direction supervisor) from the side or back window. I said back. what a laugh. all I saw was belly band and it wasn't Tom's. I thought I could see out the back. nope. window too high or the Escapes to low. :shg

Thanks Jana, I'll check it out.

There's a guy here parting out an old Boler, but I'm not sure what to offer him for the window guard. Anyone know what a reasonable price would be? (Canadian $'s)

that sounds like the way to go. :thumb
if you REALLY want it,
and it's THAT close,
then any price under new price (plus freight) would be good. :)
