I was wondering if someone could help me out. Im a bit confused, its registered as a 1972 Boler but from what I've seen from pics of a '72 its different. The roof is flat and the back light are not recessed. So then just wondering what year it really is??

Penny are you asking about Bolerama? Are you a member? If so, click the green button that says something about "start reading," then in whatever forum you want to post, you'll see a hyperlink that says "post new." It's on the left in the navigation area.

Hope this helps.

Hi Penny
Bolerama [www.bolerama.org]is another free trailer site. It's mainly for Boler enthusiasts but if you ask your questions here you will find that many of those members are members here too. So just ask away.
Jim

Happy to get a boler !

Well I found on the frame there a " 40 " so i'm assuming its a 1968 #40 built?

Interesting the first trailer I get is a boler but one of the first.... 40

Hey Ed congrats on the Boler. I just picked up #183 ('69 flat top). Having the same dilemma, restore or renovate. Mine is pretty close to original minus a bit of wear and tare. I'm thinking it might be an excuse to have two. Scamp still sells some original parts if your going for restore. What did you decide?

Well still undecided... just wondering if it's going to be worth more of less depending if I restore it to original or custom it up. haha well might have to buy another just to have two....

Right now I just have it in the shop, powerwashed it and going to sand it all down and gut the interior. If I do it as a restore or custom I'll do it from ground up.

Option #1
Since we have a shop Im going to see if I can custom fit (sink in) in 22" Harley davidson rims off the 2008 Ford f150. Check out frame, mock it up and powder coat it. Get some new windows (black framed) sliders and go from there. Custom it out with paint HD styling through out - stainless, floor, new fridge, small plasma, led lighting, waterjet out back bumper with led lighting " how i bole " etc.... have alot of ideas... haha

Option #2
Just strip it, paint it up as original, just with a few new options but make it original.... just new.

Its going to be my winter project on and off....

OPTION #1 or #2 .... that is the question .......

Ed, it sounds to me like you want to go with Option # 1, go for it.

No insulation ??

Thanks! I will take keep taking pics as I go along.

Just wondering what kind of insulation people are talking about in the interior of the boler??? I don't have any insulation on mine, it just looks like fiberglass on mine. Is there some kind of insulation I should be spraying on??

Any idea??

I seem to remember that some the original Boler's, the flat-tops, had no insulation. They were recalled later to have the Ensolite added.

I think this is probably somewhere in RoyInTO's Boler History thread which unfortunately I can't find just now!!

Nice work so far BTW!

Does anyone know or have a conversion piece for a boler to make the front a dinette?
Thinking of converting the front to have 2 seats and table.

Thanks Ed
