Project: Tipsy the Boler After
Tipsy the Boler after – a labour of love, truly. We overhauled this 1972 Canadian made Boler twice – that’s right, twice! The first time was to travel the west coast for about 3 months back in 2014. This time – the summer of 2021 we overhauled Tipsy the way we wish we could have the first time around – galvanized frame, a solar panel, and a nifty icebox ta-boot! Okay, let’s check out some photos!
Tipsy the Boler After
Back in 2012 we purchased our first Boler and over the 9 years following we purchased 15 more – that’s right, we’ve bought 16 Bolers in our lives! Wild, eh? On the blog and on Instagram we’ve shared 10 overhauls (two on Tipsy) over the years. In 2021 we sold the very last non-Tipsy Boler and moved away from Boler Overhauls. Augh – I said we’d look at some photos – okay, here they are!
The two fans keep us cool in the hot summers and oddly, they keep just the right amount of white noise going so Daphne doesn’t react to every forest or camping sound.
The kitchen has a lot of storage and enough prep space on the off chance we get caught in the rain. When it’s not raining we use the counter as a catch-all for items we like to grab quickly – bug spray, water bottles, and some snacks!
When we overhauled Tipsy the first time the Boler had a permanent bed – this time around we left it convertible to a table for added comfort.
Well, there you have it – Tipsy the Boler after photos. Fun, eh!? We’re so excited to travel in this little trailer. Daphne is a trooper and enjoys camping somewhat – she’ll get better as the years go on, no doubt. What we love most is the ability to be off the grid – solar and the generator most certainly help keep us comfortable.
Thanks so much for stopping by and although it’s January, I hope you’re having fun planning your campsites for the summer. They book up fast!
