New to trailering AND glass eggs.

Hello everyone!

My wife and I bought our first trailer about 2 weeks ago. ONE week later we were at our first glass egg meet in Fort Langley, BC!

We bought a 1980 17ft Boler and LOVE it!

We're doing tons of little things to personalize and improve it:
new roof vents
replacing door lock
adding converter
rewiring
changing exterior lights
redecorating
and more

Just wanted to say hi and thanks to everyone on this forum as we have learned a lot from all the postings.

Clayton and Gina

1980 17' Boler
N. Vancouver, BC

You got that right! Thankfully, other than the rear lights that I immediately replaced, none of it puts the trailer out of commission. We can work on everything at our own pace and use it the whole time.

Hey Doug! I think you may have us confused with someone else with a trailer for sale.

This is our only... and first Boler. He's def not for sale.

Hi Doug,

Clayton and I found ours on Craigslist, requested to see it as soon as I saw it listed. We bought it on the spot, we've been looking for awhile and really wanted a 17'. They even delivered it from Squamish.

No only one deal went down that I know of! It was a 20 year old 17 Bigfoot that was purchased. The party that purchased it now has a 13' boler for sale.
