Trailer: No Trailer Yet
Posts: 1
Hi!
I have always loved Boler trailers, and may have the opportunity to buy a 13' from my dad's neighbour. Problem is that this trailer has been sitting for years!... and I really mean years... like 10-20... The fiberglass looks to be in amazing shape, and the interior is awesome... but what do I need to do to ensure the wheels don't fly off as I go down the highway for the first time? (I will need to drive it home before I can really get to work on it... and that is about 500km)

Also I have found a CJ (compact Junior) for sale... The one with the popup top.
It too is in pretty decent condition... certainly roadworthy, as it get used and maintained.

Both being equally priced... what do the people of this site think?

I personally lean towards the Boler... but am worried that sitting in a yard for many years may take too much time to fix-up for me to drive it home.

Any suggestions are welcome!
Thanks
Raj

I think new tires and get wheel bearings done and check the wiring for tail lights etc should get you going in the Boler.

I like the Compacts, but believe there's a bigger following for the Boler....if you're ever concerned about resale.

At first blush, I would recommend the Compact Jr., merely because it is roadworthy.
