Boler Extreme

Hello all. For the last 5 years I've been knee deep into my Boler modification - which turned into a complete rebuild. It runs the gamut from new windows, to the infamous door fix, to new timbren axle-less suspension (and 10” brakes!), to ultimately a new frame…. and on and on and on. So the specs on my Boler are 1972 1300 s/n 651. I picked it up from one of my very good friends whose family size increased and the little Boler didn’t fit anymore. It had all the garden variety problems that early 70’s Bolers are known for, so I jumped in and started building an Extreme off road camper. I must commend all those who came b4 me and contributed to this site, because, it has been my go-to resource for 99% of questions regarding Boler repair and also for inspiration of what others have done. Now it's time to stop lurking and share a few of my own pics! Thanks again to everyone that has contributed to this forum.

(PS. does anyone know how to rotate uploaded pics - I cant seem to)

Here r a few more pics. I should also mention that I took out the old vent and installed a fantastic fan above the table. And the new frame extends 26" behind the shell.

Here is a little update - frame galvanising is complete, cabin mounted on new frame, canoe racks installed, and a 60km highway test was a success - its starting to come together!! Just wish I could have made the 50th in Winnipeg...

How do you plan to transport the canoe from the campsite to the put-in?

Nice! That platform on the rear should be useful.
