1972 American Made Boler

I have one fo these babies and she's in pretty decent shape. I want to sell her locally, how much do I ask for her?? It looks like prices are all over the place and oddly quite high right now. Thanks for your help!

I would suggest you KEEP it, use it, make memories ! ( Souvenirs, in French). But if you must sell it , NOW is the time, and best to advertise it on Fiberglas RV classifieds. It is a specialized trailer and may not be worth so much in your local area. ( I know, I did it ! ). People are looking for these and will drive MILES or even STATES to find one. But we would need photos or know condition to guess a price. If at all clean and usable it could be worth $4k -5k , much more it in good shape. Don't sell locally. David in Fresno and Sonora/

Thanks David!

Well, I love her but we don't use her anymore. I feel so bad because it's like having a unicorn and just leaving it ignored out in the pasture! And honestly Colorado has gotten so busy it's a night mare. I'd rather throw on my backpack and GTFO of the rat race. Can I pst links here? Here she is:

I have one lightbulb in the tail light that needs changed. I don't know how to do it without ruining the rivets. One light inside that probably needs the wires checked. The bulb is fine. The vent lid is cracked. Need to change that out. Again rivets....beyond me. Some crackling on the top There was a leak, but I think it's coming from the vent.

Also, I went high based on a page that showed all these bolers SOLD recently and they were 9-15,500. But that seems insane. But house prices here and bonkers, so maybe that is the trend?? I don't know!

Hi Stacie----


I am not in the market, as I have my own fibreglass camper, but I just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE the way you have decorated and updated yours!!!


About the extension on your table/bed----how is the piece of board supported (other than the leg, which I can see) ??


Beautiful camper~~!!! Someone, somewhere, is going to get a beauty!

Bed support leg.

Thank you! I know, the more I tinker the more I love her. So there one long screw on both ends and the screw fits into a pre-drilled hole in the dinette base. So it has three points of support. The leg and a screw on each end. Itís really simple yet effective! Also, I donít know if Iím doing this thread right, Iím not used to the message board style. Iíd include photos if I knew what I was doing!

Now, that sounds really smart! I did see the leg but knew there had to be something else to support things.


Even reinforcing the fibreglass from behind and drilling that hole thru it as well as the wood reinforcement would be secure.


Going to try this...as it has been my mission for a while to come up with some way to minimize the "dead zone" on the bed where the table's rounded corners are.


Thanks!!



Oh yes, did you use dropcloths as your fabric???? Love the look!

bed leg

I did use drop cloths! You are the first to notice. I love the look! Tt's casual and not fussy but still has a clean look.

I can text you some photos of the leg if you want? I don't know how to attach them here. I won't be creepy or anything! Or I can email them too. However I can help.

There is an excellent tutorial on this site on how to attach photos.



I know so many others will be interested in seeing them, too.

If you have trouble attaching them, you certainly can email them to me.

If you click on my name, it should offer you the option to either private message me or to email me.



Again, it's a gorgeous reno job and yes, the dropcloth fabric is perfect!!!

Worked great!!!



The photos are close enough that it is easy to make out how the screw does its job. Awesome!

Looks like it's sold!

The Craigslist link has been deleted so it's either sold or relisted somewhere else.
