Awning Price

The awning was $180.00 for everything pictured above. Based on the price of poles alone I think it was a very decent deal.

Awning Test Set Up

My muscles are aching from all the work I've done on mine. I hope it turns out half as good as yours (since it's half the trailer yours is, LOL!).
Thanks for the comments folks. I did a quick test set up today and took some shots. It was breezy and the stakes were in my vegetable garden which I recently turned so they would not hold at all. I don't have the tent rods yet but this is what it looks like on the trailer.

I just spent an hour reading through the entire thread. The trailer looks awesome! So many nice touches all along the way. Gives me loads of inspiration for our Boler. Thanks for posting!

Sue, Henry, Donna & Marcel

Thanks or the generous comments. I got involved with this bunch of nuts (no offence intended, you know you are) a few years ago when my son bought a Boler and asked me to help him with the wiring. I have a knack for that sort of thing so I was happy to lend a hand. He was in a hurry to get his 74 ready to camp so it quickly developed into new cupboard doors, flooring, rivets everywhere etc. Then it was, "when are you getting your Boler dad?" The next thing I remember is looking at this gutted 75 with all the parts stuffed inside and shelling out $1000 for it. My son said "the frame is good, the body is good, buy it."
I have no regrets whatsoever. I was overwhelmed initially but I have a cool and cozy trailer that beats the heck out of the tenting experiences of the past 35 years. I just wish I had caught on earlier. That being said, every time I look at the work others on this site are doing I am amazed. A bunch of very creative nuts indeed!

You have done an amazing job! I may be in need of your expertise as I continue my complete restore of the 72 Boler I purchased last fall. I am in Okotoks, so nice and close to all of the suppliers you are familiar with...
I'm thinking I may be in touch soon for advice, as I'm getting closer to the "put it back together" stage of the project.

Randy,
Can you give me an idea of how easy/complicated & costly (shipping & brokerage fees) it is to order items from Scamp and Vintage RV?
I need hinges & a door handle for sure. Also thinking about getting: striker plate, white door trim, metal door threshold, door drip cap, rubber beading & lockstrip for the two plexi windows, and the kitchen wrought iron support from Scamp.
Looking at getting the "specialized low profile" Fantastic Vent from Vintage Trailer.
I am worried about how much the brokerage fees will increase the costs of ordering these items from the States!
I know the Trillium Outback place sells some of this stuff but his prices seem to be high....
for any advice/input you have on this....
