a few more boles rally pictures ..
here's where you see the marked difference
in year of manufacture.
for the first annual rally there were 21
boles owners. in response to popular demand,
i'm already planning for 2016. more people are wanting to be part of this specialized group so i'll need to cap the rally
at 30 trailers and start a wait list. this*is*fun.
this guy. we'll call him Schneb. i've known him since high school when he sported a top hat and a smile. he's married to one of the sweetest gals ever .. i found them this trailer: a 40s boles monterey. it needed a *complete* overhaul and in doing so he changed the layout to complement their needs and desires. i'll highlight this trailer in a later post. it's nothing short of amazing.
maryann and her surfer hub john .. they've redone their 57 boles mira mar. while the same model, theirs is a different floor plan than ours as well as different exterior skin. the interior of this one is swOon worthy. that'll be a later post as well.
while many of the rally patrons traveled
400+ miles to take part in this gathering,
i think wes & ida traveled the furthest ...
from wyoming, pulling their amazingly
rare and gorgeous boles aero 5th wheel.
this is a cool trailer.
from the common area ..
we had about 40 feet of picnic table for meals
and mingling .. covered with some yardage from my
stash then on top of that 4 gauge plastic which
was wiped down after every meal so the fabric
didn't become soiled. after using up food in our pantry
i saved the cans and modpodged old stock veggie
labels over the metal. once on site i got my hubs
and another boles guy to work to
complete the flower arrangements in each can
then place each can at even measurements on the table.
they were troopers and it was fun teasing them.
this was our first boles,
a 1971 non parleil model.
she was a beauty ..
but 28 feet long & about
5500 pounds dry weight.
we loved this trailer but wanted
a smaller .. and older .. boles.
we found it and are delighted.
at 19.5 feet long and 3,080 pounds
she's smaller enough for me to feel
comfy towing her myself,
and large enough that my rather
tall husband feels comfy inside
the cabin. win win.
stay tuned . . . more to come
