Looking forward to seeing your work rova, no experience with a 4 cyl. towing, I'm using a 6 cyl Ford Ranger but I have seen some 4 cyl tow vehicles at the rally in past years. Can't believe how the rally has grown from year one....great to see!

Quick update, we got 21 trailers registered as of today. This year we are adding a Saturday morning pancake breakfast and a Scavenger Hunt during the Trailer Tour.

I will post the final list of activities as we get closer to the event.

projects

I think we all have something to learn when it comes to these trailers... the rally is a great place to pick up ideas and plan projects. I have found everyone very open and willing to share tips and ideas.

I have had 2 Bolers completely apart and rebuilt them and am still learning. The first was back to stock with a few mods, but the second is a complete custom. It is a fun hobby. But you got to keep them done enough to go camping in the Summer. Do all you work and mods in the Spring, Fall and Winter if you are lucky enough to have a heated shop, which I do not.

With what Rick said

My custom design and build has now been underway for 3 years, but I always make sure the Boler is at a point where I can use it over the summer. Fall, Winter and Spring are when the work happens.

Hi - does anyone have a continental spare tire kit for a 13" tire for their Boler? Wondering how you like it and where you got it, in case we want too. Cheers!

If we can find one I would also be interested.
Maybe a group buy?

Hi Tom, do you have any pics of what it would look like? If it is priced right I may be interested.

So far we have 24 campers registered. But I do get a lot more just before the event and then there are always the ones that show up. Be nice if they would let me know so I can add them to the trailer tour list.

Just some updates to the list of events this year. As usual the Friday night meet and greet campfire with music provided by anyone that wants to bring an instrument. Pancake Breakfast on Saturday morning, Bearing Repack and Electric Brake Maintenance Demo by Ian G. mid- morning on Saturday and a Scavenger hunt for info during the trailer tour on Saturday afternoon. Pot luck supper on Saturday at 5pm and campfire afterwards.

Looks like it will be a fun filled weekend. Shirley and I will be there from Wednesday August 13th, if the weather is nice that week maybe sooner as we have that whole week off, so if anyone wants to come early you are more then welcome to join us.

More info to follow as we get closer to the event.

Rick

Hi Nadine and Bim.

I keep an eye on how the camp ground is filling up and will let you know if anything opens up in Bay 11.

No you don't need to let us know what you are bringing to the pot luck, let it be a surprise. There has always been a good assortment of food in past years.
