Just found this on my local facebook marketplace . I think the seller is confusing his tiny trailer with Bolers or Trilliums if he thinks this is worth $5000. Maybe $500-$1000 tops. Looks like it would be a complete tear down and frame up rebuild!
I think I’ve seen only one of these here in Washington. We don’t see a lot of Bolers or Trilliums either. Probably because there are so many made here in the US. Also, there just isn’t a big market here for trailers with ten foot boxes. Even most of the vintage ones have a 12 foot box or larger. I agree that $1k is high considering it’s not that old, but if that’s dollars Canadian, it looks a bit better. I love the versatility of the ten foot box and this would be a fun project, but my best offer certainly wouldn’t be a grand!
I have seen these fixed up and it would be a fun project if it could be picked up for less than $1K. My Kustom Koach is the same size and was about the same condition outside and had a partially stripped interior and I only paid $500.00 for it. It could be a really nice little rig for a couple or young family that just wants something small and light to use on weekends or short trips. Unfortunately from the pictures, I suspect it would take at least $3-4000.00 to get it safe and looking good inside and out. Small trailers like these are really popular around here right now and sadly someone will probably give the seller what they are asking.
What is that THING on the roof? Surely, not original...
I wonder. It doesn’t say the ceiling height, but if it’s original, why didn’t they just make the whole thing tall enough to stand in? I get the short ceiling problem, but a fix should look like it was designed that way, not like someone stuck a giant slice of white bread on top.
