    Looking for a electric cord outside door/flap

    • Ian
      | Reply

      Including the year and model (13′ or 17′) would be very helpful, but if it is the electrical outlet with a removable cord it is probably the Bargman 35 Amp connector which was discontinued many years ago and the outlet or parts are no longer available. Best to update to a modern 30 Amp RV or marine outlet.

    Hi there, I am looking to purchase a 17 foot boler but the door has no window it it. Is it possible to get one installed or do you know where I could find a boler door with window? Thank you

    • Ian
      | Reply

      A window is relatively easy to install in a door. Small RV windows approx 16″ wide and about 12″ tall are available through companies like Sun-View Industries (https://www.sunviewindustries.ca/products.htm) or you could check with your local RV parts store. The 17′ boler used 2 different doors, one what curved to follow the body line and one was flat. The curved door on many 17′ boler’s is made from fibreglass and is usually hollow, you may need to add some support inside the door where you cut out the window opening to allow the window to clamp onto something solid and prevent the door from collapsing (being squished for lack of a better term).

    An excellent collection of parts – thank you very much, but I would like to know the price right away. Can you add?

    • Ian
      | Reply

      The list of parts I list here are from a variety of suppliers who sell directly to customer’s like yourself. I have selected them based on quality of the part, high customer service and reasonable shipping costs. Since I don’t have control over the inventory or the prices these companies charge, or the shipping costs, I feel the best solution is to provide a link to the item so you can see the current price, availability and convenience of ordering the item directly from that supplier’s site.

    I have a 1970 boler trailer. The door is saturated with water in lower half of door . Im goiing to try and repair but may be better off just finding a door for sale. Any idea on where i would start to look?


    • Ian

      Hi Wayne, what you describe can happen, if the window or door handle leak water can get inside the door. Some boler doors are hollw but others have a wood fibre core that expands when it gets wet and can deform the door. Everyone should drill holes along the bottom edge of the door to allow any water that gets inside the door to drain out. Good news, Little Camper Painter in Calgary has set-up to make boler doors. Their website is https://finishedbiz.ca/about-us-1

    Is there a replacement for the elephant skin. I’m going to start the ground up restoration of my 73 13’ boler

      Here is my article on the interior insulation, but as the article mentions I really encourage you to try to save the original ensolite. No modern product offers the insulating quality or the functionality of the original Replacing-ensolite-wall-covering/

    Hi, You had mentioned to try and save the origianl ensolite by first trying to clean the surface, if that does not achieve the results you are looking for you can paint the lining. Could you please advise on how to clean this popcorn surface and if not what type of paint product would you recommend?
    Thank you!

    I have a 1975 Boler 13 with a Bargman door lock. Can you tell me how to remove the inside lever handle so that I can remove the lock and repair the warn sliding bolt?

    • Ian

      Once you have removed the 4 screws the handle and the inside plate pull straight off. Sometimes the handle could have some rust or corrosion on it and sometimes the inner plate is stuck to the inside of the door with caulking.
