Boler under repair

Trillium trailers today are made at Team Trillium Manufacturing in Calgary. At least they were up until very recently – the company has been forced to move and has not yet found a new location. In addition to making “Outback Trilliums” as they are called, they repair all manner of small fibreglass trailers, including of course, Bolers. Several of the latter were seen in their compound, including one that was completely gutted, awaiting to be put back together and made whole.

Also seen at the facility were many Trilliums, naturally, a number of old ones, including one in trademark Trillium green (we see this colour all the time), while others were more modern examples. Perhaps some of the latter were even brand new.

We had visited this location once before, a month or so prior, but at that time were unaware this was the place where Trilliums were made. We thought it was only a repair facility only. See the post “Two Bolers, one Ventura” to see what we photographed on that visit.

Not seen on our photos was a very neat and quite rare beast, called a Vixen motorhome. It’s going to be the subject of its own report soon.

These trailers were spotted in June 2014.

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.

If you need any more information, by all means contact us!
