It's been a whirlwind 4 days.
Ever since my husband but the kibosh on buying a Trillium
4500 from the deep inner reaches of Canada (hello David Tilston!
) I've been very occasionally indulging my late night dream of buying a Fiberglass Trailer.
Monday found me on Craigslist where I saw a just listed 17' Boler
. I was in a mood, as I sometimes am, and immediately texted the seller. Fast forward to Friday and I am driving from Seattle to Vancouver with: a friend, my 13 year old, reservations for dim sum, a new 1 7/8" hitch ball, a huge mirror, the amazing Boler
Buyer Guide by Ian Giles, a bag of tools, and a paypal account full of loot.
It took 5 hours, a few trips to Canadian Tire and a lot of fudgesicles, then we were on the road.
Will post separately about crossing the border (thanks NAFTA!) and some advice for new buyers I collected from this site. Also question about what to do when the border guard breaks your locking cylinder. (hint: I don't know!)
Here she is--needs a name, new tires
and a lot of love!
