Trailer Name "the B"
Year 1972
Make Boler
Model 1300
Length 13'
Packages purchased in Lethbridge, AB on Oct 29, 2011
waiting patiently in the garage over the winter
History serial # 1113 (I think this could mean she's the 1,113th trailer built at Boler Manufacturing Ltd. 170 Dufferin Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R2W 2Z6)

unsure of who the original owner was....

what I do know is she was allegedly owned by a farmer somewhere in Saskatchewan, was spotted by a gentleman from Lethbridge while visiting the area, and then bought on a whim before he headed home from the business trip he was on....

unfortunately his dream of "fixing her up" never came to fruition due to health issues...

that is where I came into the picture and made a 'steal of a deal' with the wife because she realized they would never be able to use her....

LUCKY ME! (& her as I will be totally beautifying her)
