Beachcomber Trailer

All manner of classic vehicles about, hod rods from many different eras, all shiny and done up, Detroit Metal to the extreme…and we’re fixated on some small fibreglass trailers seen nearby. It’s our addiction for which we understand there is no cure. Must seek out Bolers, and their kin, and stop to photograph each one, or suffer the withdrawals. It’s not pretty. Funny stuff.

All the trailers seen were found in Ponoka Alberta in July 2015 at a local car show. The mix includes one thirteen foot and one seventeen foot Boler, two old Trilliums, the most common of all the makes (I swear half of them are that same green), and a real nice find, an uncommon beast, dare we say even a rare one, a Beachcomber. Not a bad day Boler spotting!

All these trailers date from the 1970s-1980s. A modern version of the Trillium is made today, but it’s slightly different in appearance than the older examples.

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.
