Burro Door on Boler Trailer

Does anyone know if the door off of a Burro would work for a 1973 Boler? Would any other parts transfer over seamlessly? Just curious if anyone has any experience with this. Thanks!

Ok, yeah I figured there might be some pretty big differences but found a local seller who has some parts I thought I could swap. Thanks for the info.

I put a new door purchased from scamp on my 1970 boler. Finally just mounted it yesterday. It will work but the doors for the scamp are about 3/8" narrower in width than the boler door which leaves the gap about 3/16" wider on each side of the door, but it will be managable and the port hole window looks cool on the boler.

Good to know, thanks for all the feedback.

Also worth noting is that the latch striker plates are different. The scamp uses an extended striker plate to catch the latch but I don't like it because it protrudes out into the doorway and clothing can be caught on it. The bowlers striker plate is low profile and in the same plane as the doorway opening. I'll be modifying the scamp door with a reinforced area so I can mount the latch further out and use the original boiler striker plate. I'll try and post some pictures.
