Happy birthday Boler: 100s of cute campers in Winnipeg for anniversary gathering
Bolers," she said. "I love it."
Hundreds of the unique trailers have descended on Winnipeg to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Manitoba invention.
The Boler camper became famous on highways throughout North America as the "egg on wheels," said event organizer Ian Giles. About 10,000 of the ultralight fibreglass trailers were manufactured and sold between 1968 and 1988.
Giles describes it like two bathtubs joined together to form a hollow container.
"What is unique about them is most of them have no wood inside of them at all, so there is nothing to rot. They have no seams, so there is no possibility of leaks," he said.
"They are like a boat - a fibreglass boat - so you can repair them. That is why so many of them are still around today."
Giles said it's not just the way the camper is built that makes it special. It's the community it inspires.
He picked up his Boler, named Buttercup, eight years ago because it fit his and his wife's camping needs. He wanted to make a couple of changes to his camper, but struggled finding fixes online or anywhere in Calgary where he lives.
Giles created a website to share what he'd learned about modifying his Boler and soon enthusiasts from across North America were reaching out with tips or asking questions. It quickly became a large and entertaining online community. A plan hatched to get together.
"When you buy one of these trailers, you are almost joining a sorority," he said.
"We are all very similar. Each of us want to make our trailer our own. We all have phenomenal memories of camping in these units and the friends we made."

Gardening: More "new" small shrubs for the prairies
Zone 3‘Fairy Queen’ spiraea (Spiraea trichocarpa x S. triloba) was originally introduced by Dr. Frank Skinner of Dropmore, Manitoba in 1961. He described it as “hardy, dwarf, white and free flowering.” It is a compact (three feet in height and width), spreading shrub with upright branches covered in pure white flowers in late spring. Plant it in full sun for best flowering. It is quite drought-tolerant once established. Zone 3‘Glow Girl’ spiraea (Spiraea betulifolia ‘Tor Gold’) is a golden version of ‘Tor’ spiraea with intense lemon-lime foliage that turns a soft warm orange in fall and pink buds that open into bright white flowers in late spring. It forms a compact mound. Plant it in full sun for best flowering.
