Our Boler

After Watching the internet and calling for over a year, November 2011 I was off to pick up our new Boler.  It is a 1974, built in Ontario.  It was modified to work as a coffee stand.  I can’t find much on the history of the trailer, or of it’s life as a coffee stand.   It needed lots of work as you can see below.

I brought it home and started stripping it down.  It was in much worse shape than I thought it was.

The boys wanted to build their own, so I made them a paper model template.

Inside it has a counter with a sink, bunk beds that flip into a couch and a dinette that folds into a bed.

Although we are now able to use our trailer, I have many little projects left on it, I plan to build a new frame and possibly a custom suspension.

    Wow! Thanks for the like and sharing your site with me. Not only do I love your Boler — I never heard of one before — you’ve also shown me how to use categories to organize my site. I wish my kids would grow younger with me so we could have more family adventures. Enjoy!

    • Thank you :) Kids at every age are great for adventures, then come grand kids and it starts again. I always find myself missing the last stage, enjoying the current, and planning bigger adventures for the next.
