Yes , Hi all! Im a new member with a 1978 boler 1700 13' . I purchased a property that came with my camper. I had no idea or even paid attention to the camper for about a year after i bought my place. I was gonna trade camper to a flooring guy for labor of installing my flooring in my new place I had bought so i didn't have to mess with it. So I googled the camper and realized what I had and from that moment on I got the fever! I love my boler. I have been working on restoring it since the day realized that I had a jewel.

Before you put a lot of money into it, get it registered in your name.
Then get new tires on it before you tow it down the highway,

I have title and I fixed and refiberglassed over patch and along front where walls meet floor. Put new linoleum down and rebuilt counter and cabinet above stove where water damaged it from lupe vent leaking . I took it hunting last weekend and pulled it to couple different places. It pull great . It was actually tagged 10 yrs ago and has good tires on it. Im going to replace tires to be safe. Im working on remodeling front and rear benches. Overall is in pretty good shape. Will post some pictures of work as I complete it.

yes, check the date code, if over 4 or 5 years old they could blow. They will do a lot of damage when the go. Tires pictured were on my Ranger when I got it, they looked like new until I looked between the treads and could see the cords in the cracks.
