Many of the parts for your Boler are readily available from your local RV parts counter, but if you go in and ask for a Boler part the usual response is “we don’t have anything that will work”  Over the build of my Boler I have searched and sourced many parts, some original, some replacement, some upgrade and some just work.

Tail / Signal / Brake Lights

Reflect0lite

These taillight lenses were made by Reflect-O-Lite, Chicago, ILL.  They are marked 110 150 on the lens.  Although these are no longer made you may be able to find some NOS (new old stock) on Ebay or used.  By using the 4″ LED lights listed below, which is what i did, these can be converted to very nice “original looking” tail lights.

Discontinued and no longer available

bargemen 99

Bargman No.99.  The lens is approximately 6.5″ in diameter and has a “tiered wedding cake” profile. It is surface mounted and held to the base by three machine screws.  These are similar to the original Boler lenses but nor exact.  These also use standard incandescent bulbs, LED bulbs can be substituted if you want to convert

Marker Lights

CT Marker 1

There are a lot of options when it comes to side marker or clearance lights.  I would recommend that you use LED, they are easy to wire and far more reliable

Title1

Scamp hinge

Original Boler hinges are no longer available, you can usually repair the original hinges with the kit available above.  If you need to replace your hinges these are the only option.  When installing these hinges you will have to drill new homes as they DO NOT line with the original holes.  These Scamp door hinges are NOT a direct replacement for Boler door hinges.

J seal

The silicone rubber seal is J-shape and slides in an 1/8″ channel on the bottom edge of each sash.

NOTE: This seal is an excellent fit, but it is very soft rubber. To help slide it in the channel, some customers have immersed the seal in soapy water. Other customers report that powdering it first helps reduce friction and lets it slide better.

Bottom seal

The bottom pane of glass closes against this seal.

The seal fits in a channel and is held in place without adhesives.

The dart on this gasket (part that slides in the aluminum channel) is 1/8″ wide. Made of gray silicone and sold by the foot in continuous lengths.

Awnings

batwing

At only 50 inches long the attractive anodized aluminum case houses the fabric and all its accessories with a total weight of less than 15 pounds. There are no moving parts to wear out. Solid fiberglass rods are inserted at each side and extend beyond the awning case to hold up the fabric under tension. Supplied string tie-downs are attached to the supporting rods to stabilize the fabric. For use during moderate windy conditions we have optional downdraft poles available.  The special water repellent fabric is made of high tenacity nylon and is available in assorted colors. Setup time is quick and easy and takes only one person to do.

    Hello, I am in search of the hardware pieces that go on the underside of the bunkbeds of my boler. I have the poles ect but whatever is required for the poles to hook into on the underside of the back cushion when it folds up. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you
    Joe

      The original boler just used wood screws that protruded down from the back of the upper bunk plywood. The heads and short length of the screw fit into the “loop” on the side of the pole. The lower section of the pole that rests on the bottom cabinet used a bathroom curtain rod bracket.
