A young couple tackled this vintage camper restoration project with gusto. The subject of their efforts? A 1968 Boler fiberglass travel trailer. They said it had,
No leaks, great guts, working appliances & new tires!
Because the body was in fairly good condition for its age, the couple could focus on “looks” without having to worry about fixing it up to a ‘livable condition.’
Boler travel trailers were manufactured in Canada between 1968 and 1988.
This one looked to be in good condition, but needed some cosmetic updates.
Surprisingly the cushions were in decent shape and didn’t need replacing (as is often the case).
Cabinets and hardware look to be original.
But they had to come off for the new interior paint.
Old insulation above the bunkbed in back.
With the cushion and table out, they set to work repainting the camper’s interior.
Both the original refrigerator and stove stayed.
Their new flooring cost just $15!
Once the paint dried, it was time to put the trailer back together again.
Old redwood serves as the kitchen countertop.
And the stove got a spruce up with new black paint.
Next came a bit of stain for the redwood…
And some LED lighting to make the fresh renovation pop!
We put in LED puck lights and a switch on the left side of the counter.
No they didn’t forget about the weathered fiberglass on the exterior. A little buffing and patching…and it was time for a new color…
Red! – to match the color of the car that will tow her.
It’s such a relief to start a renovation with a trailer that isn’t structurally damaged. Because this one had ‘good bones’ to start with, it was straight to the fun stuff for this couple. Happy camping!
