Happy new bolerowner

Hiya all! We just bought a 1974 boler 13 footer and had to travel from Niagara Falls all the way to Sudbury and back to get it home! We bought it sight unseen but with the help of a trusted nephew and a lot of digital pics we felt secure that the previous owners were telling the truth when they said "there would be no surprises!"

The little trailer performed flawlessly on the trip home except for a bit of hitch rattle in the bumps! Were really looking forward to many camping trips in the the little green and cream egg!;D)))

Welcome to FGRV Aurel,
I hope you know that there are 2 meets out your way every year. bolerama at Long Point Conservation area in mid July and the Niagara Wine Escape in mid September.
There is also the meet in Cobourg East in late May.
Hope to see you and your trailer in person next year.

Oh yeah, there are inexpensive hitch clamps to solve that hitch rattle noise. They work well.
Roy

Thanks, Roy for the welcome and the heads up about the meets next year and I sure will try to be there! Long point will be great! That sounds like fun and there will be lots of opportunities to learn from some experienced egg vets!

Long point is usually the weekend after the American 4th of July weekend.
Details and photo's of past meets are here: Ontario Bolerama 2013
Keep your eye out for the 2014 rally calendar and upcoming events (when it is working again).

Welcome

Welcome, Aurel, to the world of Boler. From the outside pics, your new-to-you Boler could be the twin of our '73 that we got last fall. Looking forward to hearing what renos and upgrades you do.

We're going to get used to what we have before we go changing very much! I need to figure out the best way to brighten up the green bottom paint that seems kinda dull and chalky and the inside needs cracks calked before Wendy has her fun decorating. I'm sure to have dozens of questions to ask in this forum before I'm through! Thanks for the welcome!

I, and others I'm sure, will be glad to talk to Wendy about some of her decorating ideas. (The photo shows a view of my "Southwest theme". She can get a head start by reading others posts. Simply do a search under the "Search" button on this forum and view the bottom of the drop-down box where you can do a Google search. I suggest using the words "decor, decorating, bedding, kitchen, etc.".

You can cut down on the "hitch rattle" with a little careful loading of the camper.
The rattle is likely due to lack of tongue weight on the hitch.
When I load up our Boler, I use duffel bags for our personal luggage.
I put these two duffels on the front bench and our extra cooler goes in front of the fridge/bench.

You want to keep the tongue weight around 50-70 lbs. to reduce the rattle.
