Half of a Bed for Boler See Pic for Dilemma

My Boler is a 1974, now I'm not sure if there was a design change in the back bunk area, if not then i guess any year should fit. But as you can see from the picture i need the (passenger) half of the fiberglass molded bed... i guess the table would be a bonus but i can make that if necessary...any help on the fiberglass piece i need would be greatly appreciated.....I can't go camping till i find one....thanks kim

half of a bed for a Boler

Sorry I don't have one to give you, but it also looks exactly like a Scamp. You might try an RV junk yard or Scamp factory. You could also make your own out of wood.

Hello from a fellow Albertan. The Fiber Stream sides are made from wood. It is not difficult, just takes time. Same with the table. I re-built mine, and can walk you through the steps if you are interested.

Maybe you can turn a lemon into a lemonade by building something there that would be especially useful to you - like a cabinet with drawers.

the measurements on the one on the passenger side should be the same as the one on the drivers side only reversed so as someone suggested you could build one out of wood and then cover it with fiberglass and paint it....

Who said you can't go camping? I know if it were me (and it's not) and I wanted to go camping, I'd throw an air matress on the floor! It's still waaaaay better than a canvas tent

Thank you all for comments and suggestions...I thought of the wood project but was leaving that for a last ditch effort as me and wood projects dont get along so good...I do alot of back road searching for antique advertising signs, gas pumps, etc. So i think if i put some effort into it i can find an old junker Boler somewhere for parts.
And it seems like there would be no problem selling extra parts on this forum to help pay for the gas....
In the mean time if anyone decides to gut their trailer and customize, i could use the seat...will keep in touch....thx kim

HI Kim,
I see 1 or 2 a year that comes up. The owner either strips the inside or the trailer is severely damaged by a tree or snow.
In the mean time you or somone you know could fashion one out of plywood. Take the existing bench off and use it as a template. The curves and size will be the same but reversed.

The bench provides some structural support.

Don't know if you make it down Arizona way, but I have a 13' Scamp I am thinking about gutting. It looks to me like the piece you are looking for is the same, or very similar, to what I have. Let me know if you are interested.
