Hello Gord. If you were living closer, I'd buy it , and it would be my first egg. Unfortunately, I live in Quebec city.

Does this mean a conversion from spring-under to spring-over on the original drop beam axle?

This is the first set of photos of the interior of a side gaucho 1700 which I have seen - and they're good photos of a nice unit. Perhaps they could be added to the Boler Album (and perhaps labeled as "B1700SGH") by one of our helpful moderators?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Hi Gordon...starting to look at getting a small trailer. How much does the Boler weigh, and the tongue weight. i have a subaru outback......not sure if i am better off looking at 13 footers??
Hi, I have all of the original manuals for the B1700SGH. They indicate the weight as being 2240 which includes full propane cylinders and full water tank. The tongue weight is 268 pounds. We towed the trailer with a Dodge mini-van with no problems and this included trips over fairly high mountain passes. We are now towing it with a Ford Ranger pickup.

Matt, it was painted in March 2004. It certainly improved the looks. Also, it made it a little cooler in the summer.

Ron, a "goucho" is a side pull-out bed. The bed measures about 45" wide by 76" long. My wife and I were quite comfortable on this and there is still room to get into the bathroom.

Hello, Gordon. Can you give me some measurements on your Boler?
Inside height
Width (outside)

Also, what covering is on the interior walls?
Has it ever leaked/been smoked in?

thanks
Very nice unit.
Linda K.
