Thanks,

Tried to keep it simple and clean yet informative.

When I designed the logo, I was trying to go for a retro 70's image.

Again thanks to Roland and Rick for getting the ball rolling and a great turnout this year!! 40+ trailers Nice!!

With the success of this years rally, I think 60-70 for next year is not out of the question.

Still many people to thank for bringing the dining tent, popcorn, music, food, firewood and for the great suggestions and advice. I will try to do that on a personal basis but for now just a general but very warm thankyou to all!

One very common suggestion that I kept hearing was to have the trailers close together in one area which would make visiting and tours a little easier. Rick and I will see what we can do on that topic for next year.

Your Boler

I re-read an article about the history of the Boler and it appears yours is a 1968, the first 100 Bolers produced were all flat tops in 1969 the put the bubble on the top. I will find the article and email it to once i get my new computer up and running. Do you know what the serial number of your Boler I will be able to dig deaper with that.

See you in 2012,

Thank you to Rick and Roland for organizing the rally.It was our first time participating in a event like this. My wife and I enjoyed the trailer tours and got some great ideas for our Boler. We met some great people and hope to see you all next year.

Rick, I just got off the phone with the owner of the '68 boler advertised on Kijiji and his son. It sold just a few days ago for just under list (it was an estate sale). Looking at their Kijiji ad photos - the ad is still up there and I made copies - mine is definately not one of the first 40 but could be one of the 41-100 made in '68. To confirm the son said I should check the left side of the sub frame for a serial number and at least the water tank which shows the manufacturing year of the tank. The boler they sold and my boler share the flat top roof, 3 sided tongue steel, copper-coiled propane lead and flush mounted lights but the windows differ; theirs are sliders mine are wind-outs. But the 'boler' decal above their windows front and back I definately have under my paint; I can just make it out.

More sleuthing to come later!
Tim

Your Boler

Ya that was the second 68 Boler to be sold lately. That one was Serial number 026 and 001 was sold a few months ago. Wow nice to know you own 1 of the first 100 made. That is a peice of history. Let me know how you progress with your search. What serial number do you have listed with Autopac? Once you find the right info you will have to correct it with Autopac and that might be some fun on its own.

It was sure fun getting together with all of you last weekend !Had a great time meeting you all ! It's a shame there aren't any other nearby Bolerama Type get togethers in our area.Possibly a smaller,less structured get-together before summer is over.

Rick, I found a plate along the back edge of the axle/frame; it was somewhat rusted over but cleaned it best I could.

It says...
DURA FLEX AXLE
AXLE RATING 1000 lbs
PATENT No. 2-712742
HENSCHEN INDUSTRIES CORP
JACKSON CENTRE OHIO

I haven't found any other identifying marks, plates or numbers and there is nothing that I can see on the water tank.

I did a quick search on Google and found that Duraflex axle was introduced in 1961 and was the axle used in early Airstream trailers.

My metal bumper which again is unique by boler standards may have been a later add-on by an owner; the nuts and bolts which attach the bumper to the frame are not really rusted over unlike my ground wire bolt which I finally found and is very rusted on the opposite side of the frames.

Any ideas where to go from here?

Hey Andy, nice to see you out at St Malo...had a couple of people ask about another smaller type of get-together and one person offered their big yard/acreage out in the Selkirk area.
Unfortunately for me I will be out of town working for about 5 weeks so would not be able to assist at this time. But Rick and I are already discussing some details for next years rally. Hope to see you there!

We are real sorry we were not able to make it to this year's "Boler Bash" due to other commitments. We're even more sorry after looking at the pictures. But we are up for any other get together this year. Lots of summer left.
Al & Clarice
