The Boler is the granddaddy of them all giving rise to the Scamp and Casitas that came later- at about a thousand pounds basemodel this was the first true ultralight camper and still holds up well after 40 years on the road. Nice fresh paint. All new suspension this beauty is ready to roll

The original Canadian built Boler molded fiberglass trailer was introduced in 1968. The design offered a simple and lightweight family travel trailer.

Made by joining two molded fiberglass halves (top and bottom) created a water tight and extremely durable shell. Inside is cozy yet comfortable, it include a stove, fridge or ice box, sink with hand pump.

Sleeping for 4 is available by lowering the rear dinette table between the seats to create a double bed ,and the front gaucho converts into bunk beds.

The boler ultralight fibreglass trailer – the famous “egg on wheels” – was invented and manufactured in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The boler was manufactured and sold between 1968 and 1988, and approximately 10,000 units were sold. The boler is credited with inspiring numerous manufacturers to create nearly identical trailers. The bolers and their imitators are growing in popularity again, as the baby boomers get tired of camping in tents or are searching for a low-cost trailer for their retirement years; as hobbyists find a new muse from their childhood memories; or as the price of gas continues to increase (thus taking larger RV’s off the road). What may have once been viewed as a poor man’s RV, bolers are now cool. Retro “glamping” (glamorous camping) is in style and hobbyists are having a blast creating the most beautiful, personalized, lightweight trailers on the road. The Internet allows fibreglass RV owners to exchange restoration ideas and how-to information, buy and sell their trailers, show off their marvelous eggs and arrange for fibreglass meet-ups around North America.
