Hi Derrick, and welcome. Congradulations on your trailer! that Mazda truck brought back memories for me. I am originally from upstate NY. A friend of mine had one years ago, and on the weekends, we would drive that thing to Toronto. We would go to the Skydome and watch the Blue Jays. Walk all over Toronto and just have a blast. Thanks for taking me back.

derrick---those cushions, having sat around so long, would probably be better if replaced. as to whether or not a set from a bigfoot would fit or not---that i cannot speak to. either way, new foam cushions, if nothing else, would be mold and smell-free.
good luck on your project.....

Hi: Derrick. You can get a new upholstery set from Scamp that will fit your Boler and the cost is about $300+S/H. The foams you can get locally and cut to fit. 4" thick firm foams works best...I did our 13'er a few years ago. Here's a pic of the Scamp covers(out with the orange...in with the blue) at the time.

A "continental kit" is the BEST way to carry your spare tyre!!!!
That support part under the tyre really helps to keep the spare from bouncing while you're going down the road.

TOP SECRET/INSIDE INFO: When you are finishing making the spare tyre
look "Spiffy" on the "cont.kit"; take a roll of aluminum foil and wrap around the tred and the sidewall of the tyre if you are planning to install a nice white cover. The foil will prevent the black tyre rubber from bleeding through and permanently staining the cover. YUK!!! :-{ (people will be dazzled at how clever you are! ; -)

Once again, Congratulations on your terrific find. Hey, you have a different license plate. Tell us how the registration worked out.

Bill

P.S. Do you have a wet/dry Shop Vac in your shop?

I don't have a tire cover for it just the tire. But it may be a plan for the future.
Regestraton was a snap went in had the old registration. Cost me 109 for the trailer plate and 32 a year for the trailer.
I will be getting a wet/dry vac. I tried to tape the back window but in -10 duct tape does not stick.

Quick! Get a cover over it!

What a great find! It's had a pretty rough life, but in much better shape than first look.

Good luck with your restoration!

In Alberta, if you have the PO's registration, and proof of ownership, (bill of sale on the back of the registration) then registration is a snap. I love the wild west!

Got the trailer out to my shop. Ripped out carpet found lenolium. There is a crack in the fiberglass at the top right of the door is that a normal problem?
Cleaned out most of the mouse crap and is looking pretty good so far.
