Ok after keeping an eye on used ad's for a couple years we found a Gem.
In November found a Boler
in very clean original condition with a new very well built frame. Couldn't get a chance to look at it until after the holidays, on the way back north from California, we made a call, and the trailer was still available.
After a slight detour to the interior we grabbed the trailer and headed back to the island. BC had just gotten some heavy snow and we had to travel the highway thru hell to get home
We made a quick stop in Merrit at the local Crappy tire to get some much needed safety items. the trailer electrical
didn't reach the TV so picked up a 4plug extension, light
bulbs for the turn and brake lights
, and safety cables. only the Safety cables will be carried over.
Our Subaru pulled like a champ, normally getting 7.8L/100km with winter tires
installed. We maintained 100kph over the Coquihalla, used 4th gear from our 5 speed on the way up, and maintained 100kph down the other side through the snow shed without touching the brakes
. Wind resistance was enough to offset the added weight
. By the time we got back to Vancouver island we were burning 12.2L/100kms.
This trailer is in mint condition (considering 1970's) and we are looking forward to upgrading not butchering a Boler
Enjoy the show
