Very nice Kurt. I just installed the identical swing jack with the wheel on ours today. Also painted it white.

I am really surprised at the prices people are asking for Boler her in the Okanagan.

Holy Cow! I just checked out all of your photos and your work is amazing. Very inspirational!

Among other things, I love how you made the cover for the kitchen sink/stove. I might copy that idea for scamp 1!

I thought it would be a good idea considering I lost the extra counter space.

I added the last of the pics. Its ready for summer (and done until next year!).

Thanks for the compliments.

From what I hear mine was one of the first 500 or so made?

Differences I have noticed compared to newer ones in the 70's:

1. my tail lights sit flush (not recessed)

2. floor is wood - not fiberglass (the under side is coveredd in a thin film of fiber galss to protect it.

3. no window above stove

4. Rear bumper is tubular (not square tuing) and there is no mount for the spare tire.

5. no side reflectors/lights

6. odd wiring plug on side for 120 volts.

7. The water tank filler is ust a chrome box with a little chrome door, no hose hook up here.
Few other differences on these early Boler that I have picked up on since seeing another 1970 and repairing a '74. Mine is from the original Winnipeg plant:

- No black/grey water tank - water drains via a tube out the bottom of the trailer.

- Water tank is under the seat, next to the dinette. Appears to be metal/aluminum.

- No city water connection - only the pump

- Different door design - not subject to the sag these newer ones seem to have had, mine feels solid, not hallow - its not as thick.

- No Boler emblems were used above the front and rear windows.

- The center seam where the 2 halves were joined are not fiberglassed over like the later ones. The aluminum trim piece is also thicker

- One of the biggest differences I have seen is the unboxed (open) frame rails and the floor not being fiberglass....its plywood.
