Smile Hi from Brandon, Manitoba

I'm looking to buy my first Boler. Really impressed by the feel of this forum and how willing people are to help.

I would love to take my wife and two little ones to Calgary to visit my family this June in a Boler; and then to Windsor, Ontario in July to visit my wife's side.

Any assistance tracking down something in Manitoba would be great. Or something close to Windsor or Newmarket Ontario where my brother-in-laws live would be awesome as well.

Thanks for reading!
Glen

Hi Glen, welcome to FiberglassRV. We're glad you found us . If you're truly looking for a Boler and that's the only brand you want, then I suggest you check out the For Sale forum on Bolerama. However, if you're adaptable and are willing to consider other brands (smart thinking) then check out our For Sale and Referral forums. Also, FiberglassRVs4Sale.

Best of luck on your egg hunt!

Welcome!

Hi Glen and welcome. I live in Winnipeg and will keep a look-out for a trailer. I just purchased a Trillium last year and had the best luck in the local Kijiji and Buy/Sell which are online.

Also, you may want to keep a weekend open for the 2nd Annual Manitoba Fiberglass Trailer Rally. Dates and info to be announced but the first annual last year was a very nice event with approx 15 trailers coming from Alberta, Manitoba, Wisconsin, Ontario, Minnesota...

Take care and good luck!
Roland

@Liz - Thanks! I'm keeping warm this winter thinking thoughts of summer, camping and family
@Borden - I was up to Owen Sound two summers ago. It is truly a beautiful town. Friends with their family and my family played at the beach and had lunch. We stayed at a cabin at Turtle Lake. Great memories!
@Donna - Thanks for your welcome. I will keep open to other brands The goal is a light camper that I don't need a new vehicle to tow
@Klaus - a fellow German I've also been to Vegreville, saw the egg... ;P
@Roland - Awesome! The way things are going I might be able to make rallies from Alberta through to Ontario Any idea what weekend you are leaning towards? I've been watching Kijiji and buying in Winnipeg would be ideal.

Thanks Roland. I had seen that one. This is a website I used to search all of Kijiji and Craigslist together. Very handy: Craig's Helper Kijiji - Search Kijiji Quickly and Easily

Welcome from the east coast, Nova Scotia. Glad you found your nest egg. It looks very nice. I located my 74 Aer-Flo 1000 kg 13R model last August on the Kiijjii website for Cape Breton. We are going to PEI meet in July maybe if you are heading down this way you and your family could come on over for some hospitality.

That is a good looking Boler. Seems you will be ready to go when we leave the deep freeze behind. Nice find. If you do make a trip to Calgary this summer and would like to meet another Boler owner, drop me a note. Right now I have a very strong urge to tow mine around and it will be on the road by then.

Hi Randy D

Thanks for the invite. We may be heading that way next summer so we should keep in touch. You could show us around the place. I keep watching my egg all tucked in the snow. oh! how I can't wait till spring.

@Rick - I will be at the MB meet for sure. My family in Winnipeg rave about St. Malo. I think I'm going to have to go and scope it out in May or June!
@Alison - Thanks! Don't tell my wife yet, but its going to get a paint job The closest I'll get to you is the meet in Ontario. My family camped just South of the Long Beach Conservation Area, last year with four other families. 16 of us took over 5 camping spots altogether at Turkey Point
@Randy - As I said at the start of my post, I will be out to Calgary this year Love your pics in your Trailer Profile. Very nicely redone
