Boler frame cost ??

I'm going to replace the 1970/71 old boler frame with new axels and all, to my fellow Canadian boler owners who replaced the frame, what was your approximate cost.

Frame cost

Just built one myself, i changed the design a bit, to strengthen it up. The steel cost about 300.00 and a new torsion axle was 450.00, the front and rear jacks cost 150.00 from amazon. It took me about three days to build it.

Frame cost

I think many of us would like to know what the labour costs would be to have a welder/fabricator do it!

New Boler Frame

We attended the St Malo vintage fiberglass rally in 2016. A gentleman from Winnipeg brought down a newly built Boler frame that his employer was selling as I understood it. It was very well done. If you can find an email for the organizers of this rally I'm sure they could tell you who had the frame. The cost that sticks in my mind was either 1100 or 1300 Canadian.

This is a place in Winnipeg several people have used. I think they said around $1800 new frame and axle, around $2200 if axle has brakes and the wiring etc but I can't find the page they had with prices on so maybe give them a call.

Yup, that's it. Thanks for knowing. They always say the memory is the first thing to go. In my case it was a close second, obviously gone nevertheless. I do definitely remeber seeing the frame chained to a tree near the registration site. Should have taken a pic I guess.

Not just you Dave I saved the page from them with all the specifics on but can't see it anywhere now.
That's hilarious seeing the frame chained to a tree but then it would be a highly desirable item at a fiberglass rally lol.

Hi Merlen,

Did you have a design or blue print for your new design? Or just based it off the original and added some strength?

I'm looking to do the same thing as you...I hope!

Thanks

New frame

The fellow at St Malo pointed out some improvements they'd made on the original and I could see they had paid special attention to the area under the door which I believe was a trouble spot with the original. It was a real nice looking piece of work.

Borrowed the idea of the 2x6x 1/8" C channel for the sides from a guy's plan I found online, then made my own design from there. I extended the main frame by one foot to support more under the front corners. I also changed the front and extended the front length by 2 feet to accommodate a storage box and battery, as well as to help when backing up. I'll try to post a picture if i can. It's heavier by about 150 lbs but wieght isn't a concern for us.

Merlen,

Awesome looking frame! I appreciate all the information and pictures, helps me out a lot (haven't worked with metal much).

Is this for a 13ft?

I really like the frame and it's a great reference.

Cheers!

Thanks for the compliments, the frame is for a 1972 13 ft. I'm planning to draw out my plans with all the measurements before i put the shell on the frame, I can post them if anyone is interested.
