Got a rare 1980 Boler 15' B1500 !!!

My wife is always appalled that I have the audacity to walk up to someone's door, knock, and ask if they want to get rid of something I spotted on their property. I say I'm an "opportunist", or sometimes an "antiques dealer". Spotted this Boler in Anchorage and the view from the street looked like picture 1.
As I neared the house I noticed pic #2
A lovely 70 year old lady answered and was amazed I was interested in a broken trailer. I told her I was an enthusiast and that I thought I could fix it. She said it had cracked slightly years ago in the front and her husband had patched it. Then the record snow this year finally caved it in, pic #3.
So it's only been exposed to rain since last winter. Not great, but it's pretty moldy/mildewy.
She proceeded to tell a pretty amazing story of tracking their dream Boler down in Maple Ridge BC on 9/28/81. But the craziest part is that it was made in 1980, bought in 81, and she knew the exact number of times they had used it....3! The registration expired in '83 and it sat since, pic #4.

So I'm discovering the 15' is pretty rare. I was given a file folder full of original brochures, paperwork, and even magazine articles on Boler. I plan to scan it all for everyone. How do I go about getting it to you?
So it guess it time to learn the fiberglass repair techniques, eh?

Amazing. Such a waste though to use a trailer three times and then let it sit and get practically destroyed. Hope you can resurrect it.

Unless things have changed, that requires a moderator. Either they get posted in a thread and a moderator copies them over or they get emailed to a moderator. I imagine Donna D. will fill us in on how things are done now.

Hmmm...I was thinking that you could post it and then a moderator had to approve it before it went live.

Whatever - great to see more documentation brought to light.

If it's Boler specific, like sales brochures and manuals... put that under the Trailer Brand Manufacturer folder for Boler. If it's appliance manuals, etc. that are used by other molded brands, please find the correct folder and upload there.

Everything requires a mod/admins approval. They look for duplicates or stuff put in the wrong place.

Everyone who is looking for documentation will appreciate your effort!

Cool!

So we can post it ourselves, rather than through a moderator?
Does that work for trailer brands as well?

Yes, you can post yourself. If it requires a new trailer brand folder, a request needs to be made through: Contact Us. Just remember, there's a size limitation to the file... and PDFs are best because you can only upload one JPG at a time rather than an entire document of many pages.
