History My parents purchased our Boler, second hand when I was a child. I remember every summer spending my fathers two weeks of vacation sleeping on the top bunk, with my little brother on the bottom bunk. It was our window to the wider world and nurtured my wanderlust.
Now that I have a family of my own and a young daughter I have started to repair and update with the hope that I can grow the same love of the wild in her.

ps: My parents still love to camp, in fact this year they “upgraded” to a 5th wheel scamp
