Boler 50th Anniversary Caravan – Escapes Welcome

A good number of you know that 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the Boler trailer.

To celebrate this event, imagine caravans of moulded fibreglass trailers traveling from each coast of Canada to meet in Winnipeg, Manitoba where the Boler was first produced. We know that interest is very high from the fibreglass community, the Escape community included. The venue in Winnipeg is booked for August 15-21 2018. We have started to receive interest and offerings from sponsors for the event and we are working on finding that one special primary sponsor.

It is now time to get a little help from the FGRV Community. To get a better idea of how many are interested in attending the event and where everyone is coming from I have set up a simple pre-registration form on my website. We will use the information you provide to estimate the numbers attending, to help plan the route, to provide direct email updates and information on the event (we promise not to spam you). As a bonus for signing up we will provide you with access to a Kal Tire VIP Program which offers special pricing on products and services they offer at their stores across Canada.
Please sign up today at Boler 50th Anniversary Pre-Registration

The Challenge is on, come on and step up Escape owners.
We are receiving very good response from owners of Bolers, Trillium, Ventura, Big Foot, Triple E, even a Biggar from all over Canada and the USA including a fantastic mixture of moulded makes and models BUT ... At these early stages not many Escape Trailers have registered, in fact there are more Casitas registered

Come on Escape owners, pre-registering just gives us an idea of how many are interested and where you would be starting from, join in on this historic event.
Pre-Register here, it just takes a moment

Hi Ian
I just signed up. We made St Malo this year and had a lot of fun, especially seeing all the vintage bolers ( about 40). We hope to go back to Manitoba soon. It's only a 2 day trip for us.

Videos and pictures here of Bolerama 2016 held near Quebec City in mid-September. Close to 170 rigs...at least one Escape!

That could be the start of an armada headed towards Winnipeg!

Ian, I registered when you first announced it, but am not on the map. I don't want to just register again and screw things up, unless you think I should.

On the map the markers overlap so yours is near the bottom of the pile LOL
If you look on the participants list which is sorted by city you will find you registration there
