    Vintage RV's.

    When my wife and I restored our tiny Boler travel trailer she came up with the idea of doing it up with a hunting and fishing theme.The camo upholstering,fishing lure curtain ties,fishing creel waste basket.shotgun door pulls,etc were all her ideas.....obviously the lady has been living with me too long. Being the avid outdoorsman that I am I totally ran with the idea.
    We call it the "Sportsman Edition".






















    Anybody out there with a Vintage RV??

    Very cute yours is. I think your little trailer has more "stay out of the rain" liveable space than our pickup camper. We use ours a ton but should have gotten the kitchen table slide-out model. Still, when you're tired of tents campers can keep the camping enthusiasm level up!

    My mom and dad have a Scamp Camper which is very similar to the one you have. Their's looks to be a bit longer but your inside pictures look very close to theirs. I think theirs is the "cat & dog travel to Arizona & Back" theme!

    Totally unrelated but I found this picture when looking up one for the Scamp. Though it was kind of funny!

    '72 Nomad. Cheaper and cuter than adding a guest bedroom to the house. Here she is set up for outdoor movie night!

    Company called White water makes a line of new retro trailers.
    A little expensive I think.

    My Mom was an artist and had a cute little trailer she painted up to look like an english cottage. It had flower boxes around the windows etc. Her and my stepdad used the heck out of it. I don't have any pictures of it though.

    Your wife is very creative that's a nice trailer.

    We bought this 14' FAN camper last fall,
    Vin # 186 made in about 1956.
    Needs some work but is rust free and has new bearings, Wheels and tires and tows easy,
    Made out of Aircraft Aluminum and will shine if I want to spend the elbow grease,
    I need to run all new propane lines and get the furnace back on line as well as run a new trailer wiring loom to get those 1956 Tbird lights back on line,
    Otherwise quite sound ! !
    Wife LOVES it ! !

    Building a car port for it early next year as well,

    We had a '76 Boler deluxe with wood cabinets and larger closet than a normal Boler. Trailer its self was only 10' but when the girls were young we had many many great camping trips with that unit. Best RV we ever had and cheapest to maintain as well. But as the girls got taller and needed more crap to camp for a weekend, we soon out grew our little unit. Best part was we towed it with Denice's Nissan Sentra 4x4 wagon, went anywhere and on the highways we were getting 32mpg towing the trailer! Love what you have done with your Boler and wishing you many happy camping trips

    I love that wood panel interior. I think it deserves a little elbow grease to make the outside as nice. Then take it around to some of those retro meets.

    Sweet. Have fun restoring that old gem!!! I know we had fun restoring ours.
    We recently purchased a larger more modern trailer because we plan on doing some extended touring next year. Figured we needed a dedicated bed and bathroom. The new trailer is only 23feet but it has a 4 foot slideout at the rear. Needless to say it feels like a palace after camping in the tiny one.
    We just returned yesterday from the yearly Vintage Fiberglass Trailer meet where there were close to 100 different vintage trailers of all kinds.

    My favourite was this Boler installed on an Izuzu cab over with a tilt deck for the Spyder. I would be able to get the TW,DR and DL on that.

    This one from Cape Breton was pretty cool also. Completely wrapped in the CB tartan!! Over the top awesome!!
