Bolerama

02 Sep

I have been using kijiji.ca to watch Boler trailer sales for years and recently A* and I started looking at some of them..and within a week of starting to look a 17ft boler popped up for sale…the 17ft model was only made for 2 years and offers an whopping 3ft in length and is a little wider..good shape for a 1979 Boler and also in good working order..so we took the plunge and bought a new travelling home away from home…we are hoping to do some extended trips so hopefully the trailer will pay for itself.

… nice little screen door to keep the bugs out.

This is the sitting area which also converts into a smaller double bed… It is not quite a double bed but it is definitely bigger than a single bed it sleeps me comfortably I am 6′ 2″.

This is the kitchen area a propane stove and oven a 12 volt pump water system and a propane water heater. The camper actually has more amenities then our house does.

A bed in the back and a fold down bunkbed above it..

Along the other wall is a propane fridge, furnace as well as the washroom area, complete with shower… But it is a little cramped..

It will also be useful in the yard as friends now have somewhere to sleep..we were always a little challenged for space in our 600sq/ft house..and 2 of my friends slept in it last night to try it out..the mini-essence of comfort…we like it!

    Little campers are a lot of fun. We used to have a 10′ Scamp. I loved being able to tow that thing with our car. A 17′ model would have a lot more room, though.

      Yeah..we looked at a couple of Scamps, Burros and Trilliums but settled on the Boler..a couple extra feet does make a big difference for space for sure!!

    that little thing is awesome! you can bring it when you visit us so that you will have somewhere to sleep – bahahahah! (we have about 600sq ft too – but we do have a sofa bed for guests. that’s it. oh and vandura!)

      SCORE indeed! Yes, wherever we go we will have somewhere to sleep. Yeah, we have an extra bed but if 2 people come to visit we have traditionally been up shits creek..with me sleeping in a hammock tent! hehe

      take care!

    Looks like a great trailer. The big thing that tempted me towards the 17′ was the shower. Should be lots of fun :)

      yeah, it is in pretty good shape..and it stood up to a day of torrential rain with no leaking issues..you always worry the first time! hehe. Yeah, the shower is a nice feature but initially we are not going to be using it…no water will be put in until the Spring now..mostly due to the fact that we won’t be moving it! hehe

      nice looking boler you have there..you must have learned sooo much..looking forward to digging in myself but won’t get a chance until next year..thanks for stopping by!
