What does it need?
It's ready for use. Two new AGM batteries if you'd like power. We removed it last winter for storage and they need replacement, simply connect and let the solar panels do the rest. And a small fix to a seam on the cork flooring.

We sadly don't use it anymore. Excited to pass it along to folks who will.

About Boler Campers:
The Boler is the granddaddy of them all, giving rise to the Scamp and Casitas that came later.
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, creating a watertight and extremely durable shell -- it's basically a round surfboard. The Boler ultralight fiberglass 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.
