Trailer Name Buttercup
Year 1974
Make Boler
Model 1300
Length 13'
History We purchased our 1974 Boler 1300 in January 2011, everything appears to be original although the heater has been removed, cupboard doors have been replaced with maple veneer doors, and the ice box has been replaced with a 110V Danby fridge (not very practical). This will form a sound platform for improvements and modifications
I completely gutted the interior to make way for a custom, one of a kind interior. Custom built cabinets from Baltic birch covered with white plastic laminate, brushed aluminum edging and custom painted doors. Dometic RM2300 3 way fridge, full size sink, full pressure water system with external water tank and accumulator, 12V LED lighting, aluminum tile back splash, large "U" shaped eating nook that converts to a 54" bed, custom cushions covered with Sunbrella Buttercup fabric.

Just got the Boler back from body work and painting. It is painted with Endura EX-2C, it is an industrial two component polyurethane often used in the aircraft and marine industry. It is extremely tough yet remain flexible which is perfect on fiberglass.

Now I get to put it back together.

The only thing that remains of the original Boler is the fiberglass shell and the large side windows, everything else has been custom designed and built.
