boler parts

Most Scamp parts will fit your boler. Scamptrailers.com has a parts store, you can find door trim there as well as other items. Campingtreasures.com also has parts for the boler.

Go to perfectfit.com and look under "weatherstrip-trims. Might be something there you can use.

When you say "trim," do you mean the rubber strip that fits into a groove?

If you DO mean the rubber gasket cover strip...

Our strips were shrunken and deteriorated, and a Previous Owner had painted over the belly band portion with brown enamel paint so that it was brittle and crackling and cleaning it looked like a nightmare. We couldn't readily find quite what we needed and searched around quite a bit. Also we were fixing up the whole trailer and cost was an issue.

Finally we just cleaned & painted INSIDE the groove with black enamel, over the newly-replaced and well-sealed screw heads.

Photo shows rear window with paint inside the channel, not rubber. If you're restoring to vintage, then this isn't right. But for merely camping, you can do it however you like, and you don't even have to have a reason.

The trim strip is ONLY decorative. It doesn't even protect the screws, as it holds dirt and moisture up against them constantly. The paint looks about as nice. Good enough, anyway. At least we think so. As we say here, YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary. Or, To Each His Own. (Though we never write, TEHO...though we could.)


Good luck with your fix-ups and happy camping!


BEST

Welcome :

Hi Chris: Our '73 Boler has standard edge trim around the 'rock guard' over the front window. But, we have nothing on the door edge. Our door has a standard weather sponge-like trim glued to the trailer (shell) itself, where the door closes against the shell. Both items are likely available at your nearest Lowes, Home Depot or even Home Hardware - and likely way less expensive that the same items at any RV dealer. BTW - Welcome to the Ontario groups of FGRVers. There are well over 250 such Ontario owners that have posted recently on this site. "Where's yu at ? - Paul Newmeister at Sebringville is the FGRV 'guru' for Ont."

FYI Scamp prefers to deal on the phone and will charge shipping for only what's needed if you call. The web site uses USP flat rates. Also the parts guys are usually quite knowledgeable about their parts.
