New in Washington

Hi, am new to the forum in Washington State. We have a 1975, 13' Boler Honey Bee. We have not yet begun the work of repairing, and it's a little overwhelming, but we are excited to get going on our project. Any tips and hints appreciated!

Jenny,

Welcome to the forum. I don't know much about Bolers personally, but they're sure good looking trailers. There are lots of threads here where people have restored them. When you have specific questions, post them and I'm sure that others who know more will chime in.

Where in Washington State are you? If West of the Cascades then making sure you don't have leaks is an important priority.

Make a list of the repairs you know you need, then ask for help in rating them as to difficulty and priority of for first items to get repaired. That will help you settle on a plan of attack and it will likely also help you understand what tools you need, what skills you need and what materials and funds.

HEY! WELCOME!
We have a 74 boler have done lots to it and enjoy using it.
I would suggest if you haven't to get out a use it first.
That will help you decide what are important upgrades for you.
Here is a link to some of the work I've done on ours.

Welcome to FGRV!

Would like to invite you to drop by the Seattle Area Fall Gathering at Dash Point State Park 25 miles south of Seattle September 21 & 22; even if you just drive up to say hi. In case you have any interest in it.

Happy renovating...we did our 1973 amerigo in 2015-2016 from a lift off the frame to a total gut to a complete rebuild...hoping yours goes super well and that you're happy with the results...you'll know every inch you've worked on when you've completed it!

BEST
Kai
