Hi everyone, my name is Jan and I live in the Fraser Valley BC Canada. Just bought my 1 st FG trailer, a 13 ft boler from Sannich on Monday. Previous owners had painted the ceilings and walls, newer cork floor and all the cushions have been updated in the past, so just some clean up and personal detail and I will be able to head out for my 1st overnight trip.My other hobby, or addiction is restoring vintage Coleman products. Really looking forward to spending time on here and hopefully meeting some of you in person
kind regards Jan

Welcome to the molded world Jan. Sounds like you got a nice egg that you can start enjoying right away. Like we used to say at work....you done good .
I've had many Coleman products over the years and had good service from them but never thought to hold on to any for future "vintage" collectors. I did buy a new, early run, 54 QT SS cooler when they came out. Maybe lucky for me I found out they made 2001 numbered anniversary units and discovered I've got #187. Needless to say, I have never taken it out of the box as it is/will be a collectors item. Might be worth a few bucks .
Anyway, enjoy your Boler and hit up a FG rally or two.

Welcome, Jan, and congratulations on your "new" vintage Boler!

Your other hobby is certainly a good fit for your new one. Enjoy!

Welcome from a Surrey neighbor. I encourage you to download the fgrv app as it makes posting so easy, including easy pic uploading...and 'we luv pictures' to quote another well known member.

working on linking pictures, just have to get my brain tuned in. Busy on the boler, re wired the inside lights, added a LED porch light, 4 LED mushroom lights each with their own switch, bought a battery and battery box that I need to mount, put shelves in the closet and 1 under the sink, and if it stops raining I will head out to Derby Reach for an over nighter OK it asks for a URL? my pictures are on my desktop and I can't see a URL

Click on "Go advanced" and look for the paper clip icon. That's the ticket for attaching pictures.

so here are a few more pictures. the PO had lined the closet with plywood with shelves and on the outside near the door was a home made magazine rack, well it had to go, not my thing so I removed it to discover
so I prepped inside and out side the hole and put 3 layers of fiberglass cloth on, then a skim coat of bondo. Its all repaired now

Welcome to the Forum and the Vintage Boler world. Your trailer looks like it is in great shape already but I am sure you have a lot more plans for making it your own. Just be aware, it can be all consuming - in a good way!
Hope you love it and keep us posted.
Jay
By the way, Red with with a big Dragon WOULD look awesome!
