Looking for local Boler owners/experts

We live in London, Ontario, and have a 1976 Boler that needs LOTS of work. Now that both of us are retired it would be great to meet others in the London area currently/completely finished renovations and restoration.

Hope to here from some of you soon!

We're not in the London neighbourhood very often; but of you're ever in the Algonquin area of our mutual province, perhaps we could meet and share experiences. We're also retired and in the midst of slowly re-working our '73 Boler 13'

Thanks for reaching out

Since we (Ron and I) are both retired, we could come up that way. It would be nice just to share ideas. For example, what is the best order to approach repairs? I assume that you would start with checking the condition of the trailer supports, followed by...

The first two years have been all about decorating - what should have been last!

Look forward to "hearing" from you again,

Rhonda and Ron, 1976 Boler

Hi 'Small-Scale': Perhaps I should have 'read' your forum title more carefully? Like you, we are retired and have been 'OWNERS' of a '73 Boler' for the past 2 years; very slowly, considering how best to approach renovations, etc. We have been active RVers since 1965 (This is our 9th unit, having previously camped in (49) states, and (10) provinces). But, we're certainly NOT 'EXPERTS'.

For this recent acquisition, to date, we have 1. Built a specific shed 2. Removed the Boler shell - sand-blasted and repainted the trailer frame - swapped out the axle and tires for new ones (adding 'brakes') and remounted the shell, 3. Stripped out much of the Boler's interior (but, not the ensolite!), 4. and, Removed all windows.

We're now considering painting/refinishing the exterior shell, cleaning up the ensolite, before re-installing windows, etc. and then perhaps building new wooden bed frames, cupboards, shelving, etc. to suit our personal needs (We're less concerned about either 'Kitchen' or 'Toilet' facilities, for our own use - 'future owners can modify as they wish'). Re-wiring, plumbing, etc. will follow. We don't expect to resume camping, for a year or so. As aging seniors, this Boler has been a fascinating 'hobby'.

But - these FGRV forums have been an EXCELLENT source of ideas, guidance, and options for us to cautiously consider through our plans. Didn't somebody recently say "Together, we can do it ?".
