Hi Ted here From Thunder Bay Ont

Hey Gang,

I have been visiting this forum as a guest for some time. Finally found my Boler project ( project is an understatement!) so I thought it was time to get serious and join the ranks of the "Egg Masters"

My Boler ( pics to follow) is in pretty sad shape - had moss and lichen growing on the roof, the door is sagging, the wheels are way up inside the wheel wells, the interior is a disaster, but hey...I'm in love! Besides the price was right and I can certainly see the Boler is an investment.

Certainly hoping to develop some good friends and contacts

Take care and hope to talk with as many of you as possible

Ted

Welcome

Hello Ted, and Welcome to the Forum.
Yes, as you mentioned, you will find a wonderful group of Friendly
and Helpful Fiber Friends here.
It great the way everyone is more than willing to share their stories
and knowledge here.
Good luck with the rebuild, I am sure it will be a labor of love!

Cheers, Jake

Welcome to a great group

boler to boler: We had to fix a few things to be leagal
Ours was usable from the start only a few minor corrections required.

Wrong tires to meet the load range (car tires of correct size have a lower load range than needed so added st205r14 c rated tires the right size for our size trailer) new tires are one load range more than original equipment b rated trailer tires, no propane sensor: have furnace and stove or breakaway switch: trailer brakes. Also the plumping had to be fixed new abs under floor and they forgot to glue it! Had some pieces to replace

Thanks Jake - I appreciate your comments - This evening after work I pulled out the ratty old fridge and the busted up furnace - VERY rewarding and the mind just never stopped thinking of what I am going to do next

Thanks Borden.

You tow yours with a Toyota? Wow - I was concerned a bit as I have 1998 Chrysler Cirrus ( 4 cylinder auto) and I was thinking it may be pretty border-line for towing capacity. I am currently removing equipment I doubt I will be using - the fridge was wrecked and not repairable - the stove burners were beyond repair and the furnace was a rusted hunk of metal. I will not be replacing those items as my thrust is to keep the unit as light as possible.

I am encouraged that your able to tow yours -

Thanks

Hi Ted and welcome
Another bolerite, Great! We've had ours since 1994 and over the years have slowly done many upgrades. Get yours to a usable state and enjoy it. The rest you can do later as you make it your own.

Hi Ted. Good to see you here.
Mostly true Horseshoe Bay story: We were leaving Chilliwack and I was looking for a campground north of Vancouver. Found Powell River and w/o paying much attention, punched it into the GPS and took off. My wife and I were talking and watching the new rig in the mirror and generally enjoying each others company when we pulled up to a tollbooth. The nice lady asked where we where going and I told her. She then asked for our total length. i told her 34 feet and said "$156 please" At that point I realized we were about to go for a boat ride.

Dick

OK Ann, I'll bite. We'll be in Thunder Bay next July. Where does one fine a Persian, the wonder holeless donut with pink frosting?
