However, like anything that old they need parts and repairs. Finding parts for Bolers is hard because they aren't manufactured any more.

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.
