Project: 1978 Boler After
After racing down to Lethbridge to buy the original 1978 Boler we had a lot of time to talk about how we wanted to fix it up – what to keep (the double bunk), what to get rid of (those orange curtains) and what to add (a toilet). The process of discussing and planning is just about as much fun as the doing. All in all, we love how it turned out. Check out these photos of our 1978 Boler project. If you want to see the whole process, then click on over to Tumblr.
1978 Boler After
New paint job! We call her Sunny D. First, sunny because she’s bright yellow and D, well, that’s because we bought it off a man named Denis. So fitting. Okay, let’s check out Sunny D!
The door is all fixed and beautiful matching propane tanks to match her funky style.
Time to head inside and turn right. The dining table – new top, refinished cushions and freshly painted insulation.
Turn left and the Boler completely opens up – look at how fresh the grey paint looks! Everything is so lighted up and clean.
Details – it’s all about the details. This little shoe box keeps sandals up and out of the way.
The kitchen is brighter with a new white backsplash.
Fresh and clean.
It took a long time, yet the fridge is so good looking.
New, never used, toilet. It was tricky to install, yet worth it.
Beautiful new hardwood (not laminate) floor – we even replaced the subfloor.
Curtains – much better than the orange ones. The orange ones actually fell apart in the wash. It was like washing tissue paper.
Beautiful new fabric cushions – and jazzy yellow pillows!

Well, there you have it – our 1978 Boler after photos. Check out Tumblr for all the details on what we did. Thanks for visiting and happy camping!
This is wonderful!
Hey, trailer looks great.
I am really wondering how you secured the bunk above the seat in the back. We are looking to do the same in a 17 foot and can’t figure it out.
We didn’t do it ourselves – it was done by the pervious owner. I know it’ll need some support from more than just brackets on the outer edge. I would suggest riveting some brackets, or using galvanized nuts, bolts and lock-tight, to secure them to the outer shell. Then, from there, you should have support from either the lower bed/couch or floor – like the bunk poles at the front on a small 13 foot Boler. This bunk was permanently in place, so depending on what you want, it might change how you’d install the bunk.
Hope that helps a bit.
