Boler Renovation Resources

Boler Renovation Resources

By Erin Wainwright on October 14, 2020 in Boler, Camping

I have had a few requests to create a list of the resources used for renovating my Boler and I am happy to share them with you here.

Boler community

Fibreglass RV – I found this site to be a treasure trove of information. People were very welcoming and amazing at answering questions and sharing their experiences. It’s also a great place to make friends with people who also love fibreglass trailers!
Boler.ca – This site is everything Boler! It has general information, tips on repairs and renovations and links to where you can purchase parts.
Boler-Camping – Another great Boler site chalk full of goodies for anyone looking to buy a Boler, repair one or just learn some Boler history.

Cushion covers

Cushion cover – This is where I found some great tutorials to help me replace the cushion covers.
Zipper – Same website! So many good tips.

Trailer repair

Rock Alta Trailers – If you’re in the Calgary area I would absolutely recommend Rock Alta Trailers for your trailer repair needs.
FIB-R-F/X – If you’re in the Calgary area and you need some fibreglass repaired, these guys were nothing but amazing for us.

Paint

 Interlux Pre-Kote – This is what I used (in white) for the primer for the exterior of the Boler.
Interlux Brightside Polyurethane – I used this for the topcoat in white for the upper half of the Boler and navy for the bottom half.
POR 15 – This paint was amazing to restore the tongue and the bumper. It’s pretty pricey but in my opinion it’s worth it. I used it over 2 years ago and it still looks amazing.

The lower cabinets are painted with Behr’s Black Black and almost everything else in the interior is painted with Behr’s Simply White.

Replacement parts

Most of the replacements parts were purchased from either Vintage Trailer Supply or Scamp Trailers.

Everything else

Here’s the vinyl peel and stick plank flooring.

The dragonfly knobs and hooks were from Amazon.ca.

    Can you let me know what the original wheels were on your before pic. Or are they wheel covers, I don’t see them on your After pic. I am looking for something like it for my 76 boler as it will more closely match our tow vehicle. Thanks for your help.

    I’m sorry, I didn’t keep the original wheel cover because there was only one and it was in really bad shape. I’m not sure where it came from. Sorry I couldn’t be more help!
