Hi Everyone,

I've been lurking for a while and decide it was time to come out of hiding. After searching for a couple of years I found my Boler last spring only 10 minutes away from home. I have learned a lot from all the great posts on this site, it's such a valuable resource. I took the boler out a few times during the summer and had the best time ever, can hardly wait till the snow melts.
I have a question about the different models ...Scout, Voyageur and Deluxe. How can you differentiate between them, I've not seen anything describing the different options so how would one know which model one has?
On the build sheet glued to my cupboard door it say Model No. 130-A-S
Does that mean anything?

Thanks,

Jim

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

The trailer was very original when I got it but needed a good cleaning, the outside is the original gelcoat finish in two tone orange. After many hours of polishing with fiberglass oxidation cleaner which I got at a local RV dealer it looks much better. I'll try Poly-glo in the spring when it warms up. The inside needed a good scrubbing as well and I painted the ensolite with an exterior latex paint (I also filled the seams in the ensolite with a latex caulking).

The tile backsplash is made of self adhesive tiles from Lowe's. They come in 12 inch square tiles ($11.00 each, used 6) with a sticky foam backing. Just peel off the plastic film and press into place. They cut easily with a
jig saw and they have several different styles. I also put in a Fantastic Fan and LED tail lights and new tires and bearings.

The furnace is not currently working so I'll see if I can get it going but I may get a catalytic heater (Wave 3) anyways, and I need a battery. I got lucky at a garage sale and picked up two 51 watt solar panels for $10.00 each, they are older but seem to work.

John, I must say I can't stop admiring your trailer and TV, you did an awesome job.

Thanks again,
Jim
