This Boler could use a good wash. A common problem with these fibreglass trailers, Bolers and those made similarly of the same material, is the build up of mould, mildew and dirt in general as the gel-topcoat ages. For old trailers, the exterior seemingly becomes a magnet for grime and gunk, the stuff accumulating quickly if not attended to right away. In this case, the tree it’s under probably doesn’t help – sap dropped from above becomes a messy glue exacerbating the problem.
Removal of the yuck requires a bucket of gentle cleaning solution, many rags, some soft pot-scrubber type pads and a great deal of elbow grease. Once tidied up, it can be kept at bay if follow up cleanings are done regularly.
This thirteen foot Boler was found parked in behind an apartment building in some Calgary neighbourhood (not recorded – we were in a rush), February 2016, as we drove about. This shows how easily it is to store one of these little trailers. Any old driveway, back yard, alley, garage or random car sized parking spot will do. They fit just about anywhere.

Amazing Burstall Pass.
Boler: A small cute-as-a-bug fibreglass travel trailer made in Canada in the 1970s and 80s. We make a fun game spotting them on our road trips adventures. We also include other similar trailers here, those from other manufacturers who are close in appearance or configuration to Bolers.
