My name is Leigh (I'm a guy, I know it's a unisex name). Myself and my wife, Spring (that's her real name also) are planning to move into a 1974 Boler
fulltime at the end of August.
We've both never slept in an RV before, let alone lived in one. We live in the Southwest of British Columbia, Canada.
People think it's crazy, but it's what we do. 5 years ago I weighed about 300lb's, lived in Ireland and watched a lot of TV. I sold everything save for a suitcase of clothes and moved to Canada. Unburdening myself of stuff was liberating!
I got into activities that are free once you have the equipment like hiking, climbing, skiing, running and lost a lot of weight
In the past few years I've felt too comfortable again. We rent a nice apartment now, have a stable circle of friends, a routine. There's an itch to throw it all away again and challenge myself to do something new.
So we bought a Honda Element and a 1974 Boler
and I'm going to see if we can live in it fulltime. This is not a gimmick or a stunt, it's the next step in living a life unattached to a location and stuff.
I have a few questions though!
As I'm completely new to Boler
Campers can anyone recommend someone living in BC, Canada that services Bolers? Specifically I want to get the frame looked at.
I'm also going to be using this camper through Winter. Any advice from fellow Winter campers out there on dealing with condensation and insulation in the Boler?
It's probably worth mentioning that I regularly camp through Winter as I ski and ice climb so I have sleeping bags and clothes for temperatures as low as -40'c. I'm interested in protecting the Boler in those temperatures though.
Looking forward to hearing from you guys!
