Thanks to this forum, I own a Boler

Around the beginning of the year, I discovered fiberglass trailers and started looking for one for my family. I finally found one through the classifieds on this forum, and made the very long drive from Los Angeles to Edmonton to pick it up. Averaging about 900 miles a day, I was able to listen to TV documentaries through my car's infotainment system and I made it through the Ken Burns-produced National Parks documentary, which confirmed even more for me the utility of getting a camper for my family.

The 1979 Boler I got was in pretty good shape already, but I've got plans to re-do the windows and some of the interior which I hope I'll get some inout on from more-experienced members on this forum.

Here's the camper right after I got it. I'd attached a hitch and the required wiring to my sedan just a couple days before.



The interior (photo by the previous owner):



My kids like it a lot. They got hats as souvenirs from my long drive.



And here's some steel I picked up when I got back to Los Angeles. The trick to the whole deal was that I don't have room on my tiny eighth of an acre to store the Boler -- at least, not without needing to move it every time I want access to the garage or simply want to roll the trash cans down to the street. So I came up with an idea and spent about $750 to make this video happen. You'll see that my six-year-oldis much better at screen acting than her father.

Whew, that's quite a drive but congrats. It does look in very nice shape. Did the two cute kids come with or were they extra?
