Of all the little fibreglass trailers out there from the throngs of manufacturers that did or do make similar looking or similarly sized RVs to the Boler, the Lil’ Bigfoot by Bigfoot RV stands out as the most look-alike of all. It’s a near carbon copy, almost a clone. From distance, it’d be hard to tell it from a Boler and only up close can the differences be noted – squared wheel wells for the Bigfoot, vs rounded for the Boler, somewhat different window treatments, that fairing over the hitch (I’ve seen some Bolers with them). Otherwise, from the side, front or back, they cut almost the exact same profile.
Most Lil’ Bigfoots seem to date from the 1980s and 1990s and appear to be moderately common (but this one is a first for us). This trailer is in particularly nice shape. Interestingly, as I understand, Bigfoot once made Bolers under contract, so perhaps these commonalities are not by accident. Maybe they reused the Boler forms?
Bigfoot of Armstrong BC is still in business and today make trucks campers and trailers, but none as small as this one.
Boler: A small cute-as-a-bug fibreglass travel trailer made in Canada in the 1970s and 80s. Very collectible and a we make a fun game spotting them on road trips. We also include other similar trailers here, those from other manufacturers who are close in appearance or in configuration to Bolers.
