Carry on,

Hi Fran
Our new Escape 19' is equipped with a rear receiver so it will accept a rack on the back. The Boler I will have to design something, but probably a similar design, then get a light weight aluminum scooter rack that I can swap between the 2 trailers

A while ago I posted about the bumper we made by sectioning the front and rear bumpers from a 1954 Jaguar Mk II to fit the rear of the Boler. Since then I have been checking out rechroming facilities across Canada & the US investigating prices and quality of workmanship. So tonight I bit the bullet and dropped the bumper off for rechroming. I know many who have paid less for their trailer than what this bumper is going to cost me but it will be unique and very cool .... I will post pictures when I get it back.

Blog about building the bumper

Thank you Charlie for the very kind comment
It has been a lot of work and a labor of love over the past 3 years.
I am very pleased with how it has turned out and we are having a lot of fun traveling the country in it.

Happy New Year everyone.
I have had some time over the Christmas break to update my website with a better version (in my opinion) of the modifications and build process of "Buttercup"

Buttercup how we built our custom Boler

I also had time to edit another YouTube video that I shot last spring on making your own front and rear windows for a 13' Boler or Scamp. Hope you enjoy and I would love to hear any feedback.

Thanks Rick ,
I got a call from the Chromers on Christmas Eve, they are working on the bumper now, bit I also told them to take their time as I didn't need it till spring, although I am sure it will be ready within the next few weeks.

Hey Rick, look what arrived today, one big package and 2 smaller ones.
It is too dark to get a good picture but here is a tease

Taking a very close look at the finished bumper today I am very impressed with the work the chroming company did. The chrome has very good depth and the metal work they did was exceptional. We had welded the bumper in 2 places to section it together to make it wide enough to fit, there were also two 1/2" diameter holes to fill, the chromer had to blend the weld, fill the holes and fix dents and damage in a 55+ year old bumper. The following pictures show the finish as well as some of the metal working to repair the dents and straighten the flaws.

I can hardly wait until I can install it in the spring
