Here is my story.......

and I'm stickin' to it.

First off, LONG time lurker. Here is why.
My wife and I have been long time trailer fanatics. We have travelled the west in a 16' Terry Resort travel trailer. Everywhere we go we are looking for something unique. So of course we have come across many a tiny fiberglass trailer. We always told ourselves that if the opportunity arose that we would take the leap.
About 2 years ago we met the neighbor of a dear friend who had 2. While talking to him, and getting the tour, he let it slip that he would be willing to part with one at what we thought was a very reasonable price. We told him we wanted it and to let us know when he was ready to let it go. So for 2 years we talked about it, planned for it, downloaded hundred of pictures and scoured this website for ideas. Just when we were about to give up on the thought of it and move on to a different project our friend contacted us and told us he was ready to sell. (and for 3 hundred less than originally quoted)
So here we are. Ready to get started.
Learn all the rules. Learn to post pics. Ask a ton of questions. And finally get started on this adventure.
We have quite a bit of work to do before we can head out on our first trip. So Im off to the "HELP" section to start asking questions.
Are you curious about what we got? Me too.

I am no Boler expert, but that axle looks a bit tired.

Shaun if you post a picture of the rear of the trailer - so we can see the taillights as well as a photo of the door handle and and interior photo of the front bench area - that would allow folks to be able to tell you if this is an American Boler.

Also agree with David looks like your first project may be a new axle.

I hope that you have alot of time and alot of talent. If that is not the case, you are going to spend alot of money.

And, the good news is that now you won't experience boredom for a long time. Congratulations on your find! (You should be aware that we LOVE pictures on this's in the contract's fine print.)
