Hi
I am a new member. I have a 13 ft Boler reg as a 1973 but might be a 1968? Where do I find the Vin? It is white, No recessed tail lights, very flat roof, not window over stove, no window cover on front, no insulation, no furnace, had an ice box no frig. Bill of sale says vin is 5045, but I have never seen it myself, where do I look? Want to confirm the year? Others think it is a 68?

VIN help

Hi Donna
Not sure if this will help, but I can share what I know. We have a 1973 Boler. There is a very faded nameplate on the left side near the power cord hole. There is also a dealer sticker on the inside of the closet door. Ours was hidden behind a mirror that some previous owner had installed.

From what you describe, and what I have read, I think you are correct that yours is an earlier model. So these "new fangled" VIN things may not have been incorporated. Maybe you can compare body style with pictures of other Bolers to more accurately date yours.

A picture of the trailer/roof would help. Also door hinges.
All white might be painted, look for clues.
No insulation may be original or removed.
VIN # has me thinking.
Dealer name? location?
Anything on the tongue?

Flat roof and no recessed tail lights = one of the first 100 Bolers built. I have found a lot of Bolers are not properly registered. With wrong years and wrong serial numbers. Your serial number is WAY too high for what your describing. Serial number can be found on a plate on the drivers side just below the belly band middle of the trailer and also on the inside of 1 of the doors. If they were not replaced by a previous owner , at 45 years old who knows what pervious owners have done.
