    Thank you. Look forward to getting the data.

    We have only taken it on short hauls, so far, without any problem (have not put any brakes on it). We have not done any mountains yet, but I think I may go with the electric brakes, rather than the surge ones, as we do want to travel to the US southwest next year.

    We have only towed it twice, so far and have not done any heavy mountain climbing. We are planning to put surge brakes on the Boler and we did add a transmission cooler to the car. So far, so good.

    Thanks Borden,

    Our window cover was broken so we patched it with matt cloth. Then we painted the boler lettering that was embossed in the cover. With all the rock damage that I bondoed and the paint that was stubborn to remove, I just scuffed up the paint and cleaned it real good before applying the rust paint. It took countless hours. It is not perfect if you look close but it is much better than the PO's paint job. They had paint everywhere it shouldn't be. So did I when I was done, but I spent the time cleaning it up afterwards.

    Another member sent me a post stating the same thing. I like the Boler 17

    We did instal an Air Conditioner because we're leaving for nine months and will be traveling cross country next July with potential for hot weather. I've tested our setup (no hole thru the fiberglass) and it seems to work well.

    We have the fridge, bathroom with toilet and shower, a inside air conditioner (located in the bottom of the hanging closet. We have added an over the couch near the bathroom sweater and hanging closet. Added 5 drawers, and overhead storage above the dinette. We also have added a rear bumper box, a converter and a 1200 watt Inverter. About to add a screen door. You can see most of these in Modifications, Preparing a Scamp 16. Our loaded for travel weight is 2400 lbs including a hitch weight of about 200 lbs.

    I'm for ever in Home Depot, it seems daily. I would also say I really like the 1700, went in one at the Prince Edward Island Rally.

    It's likely better to have this conversation here....
    Dave Cummins's son married my daughter. His wife's name is Linda and he works as an order guy in Home Depot - daytime, I think. We were just up there for Christmas with them.
