Trailer: 1986 U-Haul CT13 ft

And here's the Cloud 9:

Details like the tail lights and molding around the side windows are identical, as is the vertical center seam which is characteristic of Clouds, Burros and UHauls (I've been approached by Burro owners who assumed my UHaul was a Burro). The interior shell for the Cloud advertised on eBay looked exactly like my UHaul.

How the molds evolved from Cloud to Burro to UHaul may never be known, but their DNA match is unmistakeable!

Here's another update to the list, with some formatting changes to show the separation of the companies, and the 1974 Perris Pacer represented:
  • 1968 - 1st Boler produced in Winnipeg, MB by Ray Olecko
    • 1971 - American rights sold to Elenor International of Wichita, KS
      • 1972 - Boler American produced (1972- ??) (3 plants)
    • Scamp is derived from Boler:
      • ???? - Boler components are being manufactured in Backus MN, by Eveland?
      • 1971 - Scamp is being produced in Backus
      • 1981 - 1st Casita produced in Backus, MN
    • 1973 - Bolers (original 13' model only) are in production by Glass-Fab Industries Ltd. in Peace River, Alberta. See the 1973 brochure.
    • 1974 - "Boler Manufacturing" was building "Honey Bolers" in Winnipeg, Manitoba (see Benny's post)
    • 1975 - Earlton Manufacturing was building Bolers (13' only) in Earlton, Ontario. See 1975 brochure.
    • 1978 - Bolers were built in Calgary, Alberta by "Neonex Shelter Ltd., Boler Division"; a 1978 17', model 1700, was owned by Peter Epel and CharlynnT's 17' is also from Calgary, "Built with Pride by Neonex"
    • 1979 - Vanguard Trailers built my Boler (a B1700) in Winfield, British Columbia in 1979. The badge on the trailer says "Boler by Neonex", indicating that Neonex owned the Boler brand at the time.

Hi: In the beginning Ray Olecko created Boler and it was good. After a time he said it is not good that Boler be alone. Taking a rib from Boler he created companions and he saw that they were good: Regards Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie

Bit of a clarification....My '74, 13'Honey was built by "Boler Manufacturing in Winnipeg" according to the sticker in the cupboard door, and a sticker on the side near the door reads...."Built With Pride-NEONEX" ....so my trailer is technically not a Boler, since there is no Boler badging on it, just the hexagon pattern decal and the "Honey" name on the stone guard over the front window and no "Bee" decals either.... ....Benny

Actually, while I'm not sure where, exactly, Perris Valley Campers is located; and they may be in San Jacinto, the Pacers were manufactured in an old lumber yard or some kind of old manufacturing facility in Perris, CA. just off what is now Hwy 215. I think (IIRC) they were on the big bend in the freeway just a couple of miles south of what is now called the Ramona Expressway, just north of beautiful downtown Perris.

If I'm mistaken about the location... please, someone come to my rescue here!

My 1979 was made in Earlton also. I know of only 5-6 other 1979s, so it seems not too many were made that year. The notable feature of the 1979s (at least the Earlton ones) had radius corner windows.

Roger I do believe you are right about where the Perris Pacers were made.

FYI: My '75 Boler built by Neonex Industries in Wini. is clearly marked "Boler" (not Honey) both with body decals and on the closet door spec sheet and riveted metal plate. Cheers, Alec

As well as the "Honey", Boler also made three other versions called "Scout, Voyager and Deluxe". Does this mean that they are also not really Bolers also? By thinking this way then all the Ford or GM cars and trucks made in the Canadian plants not really Fords or GM,s at all? OK, but what are they?

It's my understaanding that the "Scout, Voyager and Deluxe" designations were "trim" levels. Something like the "LX, ES or SS" designations car makers use. All the Scout, Voyager and Deluxe Bolers are still badged Bolers.

Whereas the "Honey" was not badged as a Boler.

It's still a TRIM level. That was the special deluxe in that year. If it looks like a rose, smells like a rose and feels like a rose then chances are.........But then you guys are the ones that tell me that mine isn't a true boler 'cause it wasn't made by Neonex.

James, I don't think anyone is saying anything about your trailer in particular. The history of the Bolers is so sketchy we are trying to figure it out. I have never seen "honey" listed as a trim level before, only as a "brand" sometimes called Honey or Honey Bolers.

Anyway they all came from Boler molds, including Scamps, Casitas and the half a dozen or so other knock offs.

Edited to say...

James, do you have any pictures of your trailer posted (sorry my memory is a sieve) I'd love to see it and compare it to what I have.

Raymond Brodeur, a member on FGRV from Montreal has a very beautiful 1977 model with the fiberglass cabinets. There is a link to his website under his member profile.
Hi, Charlie
Nice to you to remember ! Here is a link that shows a part of this fiberglass counter before renovations, and here is an other one after 2003 mods. But, in 2004 I added a new top on it because it was curved and not so nice looking. Here is the new counter top . Sorry for the vintage style, but I prefer this latter...

Raymond's website does indeed show the fiberglass interior of what appears to be a B1700RGH (Rear Gaucho). Like mine, except with the fiberglass cabinetry, different furnace location... and nicer than mine!

Now, if we knew where this 1977 was built (location and company name), it might extend the Boler history...
Hi Brian, thanks.
According to a sheet that was stick behind an inside door, my Boler was built by Neonex Shelter Ltd, Boler Division, address: 2004 - 21 St. N.E. , Calgary. Model number is 1600 .
This is the contribution I can give to the Boler history...
