I've never seen a Boler
, but looks similar to our 13' Uhaul
in size and shape. We put a 7' bag awning on ours because that was the maximum straight flat area we could use. The bag awning won't work on the curved ends. Bag awning also requires two ball sockets, one at each end of the rail for the "rafters" to connect to the trailer body. This info is based on the Shademaker brand awning that we bought. Problem with the 7' awning is it is only available in the Classic model that has the cheap twist lock poles. I have heard it can be special ordered with the better Supreme model poles but that cuts the projection length (out from the trailer) down to 6' from the standard 7'. I would go this route if possible. I also bought the optional center rafter, cheap enough so got it shipped with the awning. The trick with a curved roof trailer is to get the awning rail up high enough so the door will clear the awning, but not too high for the ball sockets. With this brand awning I, and one other owner, have found that water gets in the bag when the awning is rolled up in storage mode. We suspect it enters around the stitching.
