New Boler Owner in Calgary!

I picked up my new-to-me 1974 13' Boler this past Saturday. I'm waiting, albeit impatiently, to get in it to do a few projects in it to get it ready for the spring.

So far, what I have planned is:
  • Give it a good cleaning - It's not too bad, but still...
  • Fix the pesky seams
  • Replace the door moulding
  • Re-cover the cushions (fortunately I can sew!)
  • Replace the curtains
  • Remove the furnace (doesn't work, and I probably wouldn't use it)
  • Rip out the grimey carpet and replace it with... (haven't decided yet)
  • Give the outside a good buffing
  • Check ,and re-seal if necessary, the vent and side windows
This is a short list of what I think I will need to do overall... everytime I check out this forum, I find more great ideas and things to check on.

Welcome Anne to the wonderful world of fiberglass trailers! My suggestion is before you do any big changes attend a rally close to you - you will get lots of good ideas on what to do and some not to does.

Have fun with it.

welcome, anne! your list is just the beginning---every time you enter your new-to-you trailer, you will see something else you'll want to modify! being a seamstress will surely save you a pretty penny. and in case you haven't realized it---WE LOVE PHOTOS! especially before and after shots. again, welcome!

Hi Anne, to the forum. Projects are the other part of the fun when owning an egg.

Welcome to the forum, We have lived in Calgary since 1997. We have enjoyed our F/G RV and have had it since 1995. We have been doing repairs and "improvements to customize it to our use ever since we got it. We are happy with it, but I doubt that it will look like it does now five years from now.
When you retire, everyday becomes Saturday!

Welcome Anne
Great to have another Calgarian join the group.
We also own a 1974 Boler, I can see a Southern Alberta meet in the coming years.
