Thanks! Not sure I am ready to go into the trailer painting business! It was fun, but my garage floor is still red in many places! I am however, itching to repaint the trailer, there are a few stone ships and honestly, I really had fun!
As for redoing your 13 footer, all the fun is in making it your own and I still have few more mods to do to mine...

Thanks for the compliments too. As for camping simply, I am sure that I am like you in that we go away to get away. Life is busy, work and households have there inherent distractions and living an honest simple life with less is a joy. You appreciate more of what you experience. Our Boler has been a great addition to our camping experience.

simple

jay this is why after my back surgery very difficult 2x by the way I had to find the simpliest solution for my camping we tent camped for 41 years all over the world hard to give that up. I settled on the 95 scamper 13f no dodads nothing to fix or work on in my condition.

the only thing I don't have is a power tongue jack yet as the way the guy extended it out there is no conventional way to mount one. But I make it the rest of the way with the wifes help.

at 76 now I cant take on much if I strip it out I know I wont every finish it and the trailer is in really nice condition. So I will live with what I have and be thankful for what has been given me!

I do so admire you guys who have the skills, imagination and energy to not only attempt what you do but to have the drive to finish up your projects.

Last summer we took the Boler out to Vancouver Island and up to the Yukon, even popped into Alaska. It was an amazing trip, we went close to 20,000km in July and August and while we didn't tow the Boler up the Dempster highway we did manage to drive to Inuvik and then fly to Tuktoyaktuk. I thought I would post a few of my favourite glamour shots. The last one was taken on our drive home through Northern B.C. - Glad I was keeping my eyes on the road!

Wish I was there!-Boler 50th

Well gang,
Watching all the stories on the 50th reunion this week sure makes me wish I could have made it too! We are heading out camping at Wheatley Prov.Park today to celebrate with the family.
A shout out to everyone at the big celebration! Hope you post lots of pics,

Thank you for your awesome post, made me a little home sick for the Yukon. We picked up a little 13" boler I am doing up, not a full restore but close. I loved reading all you did to restore yours, and the wonderful memories you have made.

Hi Shanos,
The thread is not as detailed or straightforward in some areas, sorry. In my defense, I was working on the trailer daily for a couple of months and I must confess I didn't post as regularly as I meant to. The day after I finished the trailer we headed out on a long trip. Hope you can make heads or tails out of my posts.
As for the Belly band, I just bought 3/4"x3/4" bright aluminum channel in 8 foot lengths from Home Depot. I bought 5 but it only takes 4 to wrap around the Boler. The 5th one was my practice piece. If I hadn't been feeling pressure to be done I might have had fewer ripples.
And yes I simply riveted it onto the fiberglass lip.
Jay

Thanks Jay! I will hopefully have the luxury of not being rushed! And good plan to have a practice piece...I've never bent metal before.

Great work on your belly band.


Can I ask you a few questions:




  • What size C Channel did you use?
  • Where did you sourced the C channel used?
  • Did you have to use several lengths to get all the way around the camper?
  • How did you address the seems between each piece of channel?
I appreciate your time.

This is a project of mine that is a couple weeks away.

Thank you.
Mark
