Trailer: Boler 13 ft
Posts: 532

Last Summer I had a bit of trouble with my rock guard on my 1980, 13ft Boler.
No problem, I had my trailer at the campground I was staying all summer and the interior curtain gave enough privacy and I had no need to replace it.
I did look for the exact hinges but could not find them and working 24-7 at the campground I had little time to get to the city to do a serious search.
Anyway, before I knew it, summer was over and I had to get the Lady-Bug home.
With all my gear stowed, and not rock guard on but the lower half of the support bars still riveted to the camper I took off.
My wife was in a car just behind me and about half way home, I guess the wind and unknow wear of the rivet holding on the lower half of one of these slides came away and my wife saw this part come flying out from under the camper only to run over it.
She turned around but several cars had also squashed the aluminum sleave.
I tried to straighten it out but the 2 parts just will not slide as they should.
Where can I find replacements? ... any suggestions?
Tried all RV dealers here...
Found the exact hinges at Boat shop maybe will go back and look for a hatch support the right size

Perhaps some photos would help trigger some suggestions -- From what you've posted so far, it sounds quite different than the Scamp system.

I made my own rockguard for my 76 Boler. This video may give you some ideas.
