Hi all! I have been wandering through this website for a few days now as my husband and I search for a fibreglass trailer. You all seem to be a wealth of knowledge, so I thought I would throw out our dilemma and see what can be learned.
We are stuck on the nostalgia of the Boler
trailers, but I think the Trilliums have a bit more storage space (?). Are there any other advantages / disadvantages of owning one over the other? Currently we are looking at the following:
1. 1977 Trillium
for $3,500 with "a few small leaks
that can be fixed with re-caulking the seam."
2. 1976 Boler
for $3,500 that has an awning
(Trillium doesn't), but there are some water stains leading from the kitchen window corners down to the counter. Owner says not aware of any leaks
. Maybe this is normal (?). Also, caulking in corners of trailer seems to be erratic (strips missing in some places).
3. 1980 Boler
for $5,500 that has been nicely refinished on the outside, and the inside seems to be kept in great shape too. Waiting on more pictures of the inside. Not updated inside, but looks clean and no signs of water as of yet. And no awning
. Can these be easily purchased and installed?
What are your thoughts on Boler vs. Trillium
, and on the above choices. Thank you!
