This year is looking to be a great one for Boler spotting and the tally as of May 2013 is twelve seen and eleven photographed, the most recent being this example here. In contrast, last year at this time we had documented only half as many overall.
This Boler is one of the larger 17′ trailers and interestingly, of those seen this year roughly half have been this model even though as I understand it, they are less common. While a nice trailer, their more squarish lines make them less cute (IMO) than their 13′ brethren. Also of interest, this one was caught on the road, a rare occurrence and the vast majority we photograph are parked in alleys or along streets, in storage yards or in camp grounds. Catching one moving, like this one, is rare for obvious reasons – they often pass by and are out of sight by the time we break out a camera.
This one was spotted in Calgary, very near our house, in May 2013.
One reason our Boler count is so high was due to a large group (a gaggle?) we found in a single neighbourhood in one day. To see those seven Bolers (yes seven), click the link below…

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.
