Restoring and Repairing Bolers

Having trouble finding parts for your Boler camper? Boler trailers were built back in 1968-1988, and only 10,000 were made, but many of them are still around. However, like anything that old they need parts and repairs. Finding parts for Bolers is hard because they aren't manufactured any more. The good news is that there are many sources to find Boler parts and also there are many videos online showing how to make the repairs. I've gathered the parts and repair information for Boler travel trailers and put them all on this page. Hope you find it helpful for restoring a Boler trailer.

I love seeing all the Bolers still on the road. So many people spend hours lovingly getting their trailers in shape. The fact that there are so many on the road still attests to the their quality and all the convenience that is packed inside. These little trailers really had it going on.

Common Repairs for Bolers

Some of the common things that break on Bolers are the window cranks. Scroll down the page to see the video on how to replace the window crank.

There are also videos for patching holes in the fiberglass, fixing the rainguard over the door, and checking to see if your fridge and stove work.

Find Parts for Your Boler

To find vintage trailer parts for your Boler just search for "Boler" and you'll find window operators, door latches, and light covers at Vintage Trailer Supply, Inc. Type in the word "Boler" in the search box and it will pull up Boler parts.

Boler Forums

Finding parts for an old Boler can be hard. However there are many forums on the internet for Boler enthusiasts and they can be a great source for learning how to do repairs and find parts.

      I own a 68 flat top boler,one of many bolers that I have owned thru the years. Great little units and at my age (90) I still enjoy camping locally. I am open to questions about bolers if you have any. 1968 in particular or 15 foot bolers which I have owned (oh yes there is a 15 ft.). OPEN ALL HOURS.

      I own a 1972 or '74 Boler 13ft. and will be installing new windows that have radius corners. Nothing at all wrong with the existing windows as they both work properly but for me it's about the aesthetics and I don't like the square cornered windows. So, if there are any purists out there who would want to purchase the two windows, let me know. windigoblues@gmail.com

      My husband bought me a 1979 Boler 13' 9/11/15. I bought 2 new tires to get it home as photos showed it was very much in need of them. We haven't really started on it only removed all the seats,curtains very old and wet,mildew smell. It is pretty much all original except frig and a hand pull at front door. I look forward to working with my husband on this baby. We plan to restore it to it glory not changing much if anything of floor plan. The way it is is what makes it special. You can't help but smile looking at it. We see it as a,very special piece of art and history of days gone by. If any one has words of wisdom please feel free to share with us.

      YES! We just bought a '73 Boler, 13 ft...we are starting to take it apart and the biggest problem we are coming across is taking out the fridge so we can clean under it and paint properly. It seems to be bolted down, does anyone know how to get it out without ruining the frame?

      I Currently own a 13" Boler and it has been a labour of love. Took A month just to clean it up. We have put about 8000 miles on it in the last 5 years and love the way it pulls behind our Dodge Caravan. It costs us about 2-3 MPG. Well worth it.

      No, I don't own a vintage trailer but my husband's sister used to have one like this. I don't know if they still have it or not. I will have to find out and if so, will send her here.
