Two years ago we bought an old well-loved but run-down Boler. Then we went to St. Malo with it to gather ideas from all of the fiberglass trailer owners. Then we put our Boler in the shop and worked on it (off and on) for two years. It is still not quite ready for its grand re-opening, but it will be soon. We will bring it to St. Malo, together with its matching 1953 Mercury pick-up truck, and will be very happy to show off all the different things we have done to refresh it. We're very excited! Also, we would like to hear from anyone who has done any towing of a Boler with a 4 cylinder car. We are thinking about getting a VW TDI some time in the future. And we are especially anxious to learn about people's experiences with different kinds of awnings for their fiberglass trailers. See you all in St. Malo!

Your should take a look at the VW Tiguan. It was a tossup between that and Ford Escape I decided to buy. The Tiguan had to be factory ordered the way I wanted it and would have taken 6 months to get. But I am glad I got the Escape instead as the tow rating in much higher.

Looking forward to seeing your work rova, no experience with a 4 cyl. towing, I'm using a 6 cyl Ford Ranger but I have seen some 4 cyl tow vehicles at the rally in past years. Can't believe how the rally has grown from year one....great to see!

Quick update, we got 21 trailers registered as of today. This year we are adding a Saturday morning pancake breakfast and a Scavenger Hunt during the Trailer Tour.

I will post the final list of activities as we get closer to the event.

projects

I think we all have something to learn when it comes to these trailers... the rally is a great place to pick up ideas and plan projects. I have found everyone very open and willing to share tips and ideas.

I have had 2 Bolers completely apart and rebuilt them and am still learning. The first was back to stock with a few mods, but the second is a complete custom. It is a fun hobby. But you got to keep them done enough to go camping in the Summer. Do all you work and mods in the Spring, Fall and Winter if you are lucky enough to have a heated shop, which I do not.

With what Rick said

My custom design and build has now been underway for 3 years, but I always make sure the Boler is at a point where I can use it over the summer. Fall, Winter and Spring are when the work happens.
