This is my first post. (But I've been lurking for awhile.)
I am working up the nerve to buy a 1970s 13' Boler
. I will probably gut the kitchen, and lay new floor. It will be my backyard mancave most of the year, and a little desert escape
pod on weekend getaways.
I'm fairly handy, and can research/fix little things, but I just can't take on a fulltime restoration job. I look at a resto like this:
with a mix of envy and terror! So I'm a bit afraid of buying something broken that I will never have time to fix. I've seen this happen, and I don't want it to happen to me. I want to be sure that I'm asking the right questions when I go look at my Boler-to-be.
Can folks here advise about the common failure points, typical issues, gotchas, expensive fixes, warning signs, etc that I should be mindful of when inspecting one?
Thanks in advance for any help.
