New to me 17 ft boler

Long Time lurker finally bought one, and actually put the cart before the horse. I donít have a TV, as I am not allowed to pull with my work vehicle. Anyways I got a 1980 17 foot, Boler. I havenít brought it home yet as we got a bit of snow the night I bought it. Itís a bit dirty and probably need work. Lurking on the site I want to tear it apart and start but I will probably use it with my boys, and then think about what I want to do. I really donít know what plans would suit us best yet, but I liked the dinette in the front, couch in the back, but where should a TV go.
Initially to-do clean, new cushions, stereo, maybe add hot water, try or purchase an awning, outside propane, and of course fix and repair what is needed. Then do the little things that help out in the camping.

Welcome - always nice to see another Canadian join us. Im sure you will really enjoy having your new to you trailer. As you are considering changes it may help you decide what you need/want to do by attend a couple of meets where you will get lots of great ideas from those who have already been there and done that. A couple of meets posted already are: July 14-17 at Jubile Regional Park (Lea Park) and the other Sept 15-18 at Miquelon Lake Provincal Park.

Welcome Ralph and congratulations on getting your trailer. I think you will find that after each camping trip the ideas for changing the layout will be more evident. Also attending a few rallys and seeing what others have done to their trailers provides an abundant of ideas. Check out the "Prairie Egg Gathering", the third weekend in July (14th -17th) which is being held just north of Marwayne, AB at Lea Park Campground. More information can be found in the FGRV Rally section.

Sounds like ours, the boler was in fine shape but needs a few things. Will share ideas.
Congratulations!

welcome to the forum... lots of canucks here! What size of tv are you thinking of? I have a 13' and I was toying with the idea of one of those "under the counter" kitchen dvd combos. I haven't looked too much into it though

Welcome and good luck with the tow vehicle search. If passing through Manitoba in August don't forget about our rally on the 19 - 20th! Enjoy the summer and the trailer.
