Travelling across the west, as we do, we encounter our share of little fibreglass trailers. We might see them on the highway, in camp grounds we pass, parked here or there, at gas stations…they can turn up anytime, anywhere. Or so it seems. Here’s one, a Trillium, the most common of the Boler-like trailers, found in a grocery store parking lot in August of…what’s this…2016. Yes, we’re that behind in posting!
This one was spotted in Cranbrook BC.
The flowers, a 1960s “love and peace” motif, make this one a stand out. Nice and clean too. This here Trillium’s feelin’ groovy…
“Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobblestones.
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy.
Ba da da da da da da, feelin’ groovy.”
From The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy), 1966, by Simon and Garfunkel.

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.
