Maintaining the Life of Your Boler Trailer

History

Proudly a Winnipeg success and getting its name because it resembled the look of a bowler hat, when the Boler Trailer came out, it was a major hit because of its lightweight fiberglass build which made it easy to relocate. Dealers, at first being reluctant to purchase, saw Ray Olecko, the designer, single handedly pull the trailer across the parking lot, this demonstrated the value that customers would have in the trailer. The Boler Trailer is perfect for camping and light travel, being able to haul it with just a car and without the hassle of tenting. The 1970's retro trailer is now making a comeback due to its vintage, ultra-light, design that fits four people and is made for convenience.

Maintenance

The problem is with fewer producers of the Boler Trailer, it's more difficult to make repairs on the aging trailers. Being able to haul the trailer is more worrisome with the parts wearing out.That's where we come in.

The frame of the Boler Trailer at the time they were manufactured were not made with today's industry standards. The bolts holding the body to the frame loosen and start to flex and crack the frame, which in turn begins to distribute the weight of the body unevenly on the frame, resulting in quicker wear and tear.

We Can Help

Our Boler Trailer is made to specifically haul your Boler Trailer while still maintaining its lightweight design. We recognized the need for a trailer to haul a Boler Trailer after bringing our trailer out to the lake; we had amazing feedback from outdoor enthusiasts that were awestruck over the design. This showed us that other people were in need of the trailer as well. We can help you maintain the life of your Boler Trailer, just give us a call and we'll be happy to help. 


What Makes The Boler Trailer So Awesome

The vintage trailer perfectly fits the tiny house and minimalist trends that have been sweeping the nation. The little egg trailer lets people travel the country without the cost of hotels or a truck as some of the trailers can be hauled with a car. Due to its simplistic design it allows people to pack their necessities but not much more. For some it is also the nostalgic aspect as the trailers were originally manufactured between 1968 and 1979.
