It's cute as a bug--add spots and it could be a ladybug, in fact! It would go great with my red truck! Any inside pics?

Looks good. Can you tell us more about the restoration. For example, it looks like there's no propane but a battery on the tongue instead. Is that the way you got it or did you make that mod and if so why?

Also, Iv'e been thinking of having the spare on the tongue also, to have a cleaner look at the back end. How does it affect your tongue weight?

Thanks.

The resoted Boler has had all the Propane removed. It was a personal choice of mine (safety reasons). Because of this, it allowed me to install the spare on the front. The weight of the propane was replaced with the weight of the spare. However, I can't take (Sharp) Left turns with the spare mounted on front. Nornal backing and driving is fine though.

Incredible! This is now my favorite of all restorations I have seen! tasteful, stylish and modern. In my opinion it is cooler (or as cool as) the Airstream Basecamp. I am green with envy.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for all the great feedback. Our boler was a labor of love! We are going to add an awning this summer. Really looking forward to getting to the camp site!

Any feedback or idea's on awnings would be great!!

Cheers,

Mike

Oh, I forgot to say--I'd keep the blue cushions; blue is a more restful color than red and it seems to me that with maroon cushions the interior is going to be pretty intense. Of course, you didn't ask for my opinion...

Thanks for you opinion. We are still up in the air about that. It would be a great cost savings if we just kept the blue.
