During the Canadian winter we don’t have much to say about our Boler, simply because we aren’t using it. Once the temperature drops off and the snow falls the Boler finds itself tucked nicely into our garage for the winter (it fits in our garage with about 5 mm of clearance). Once away for the winter, it becomes a storage spot for all thing camping until the spring.
Well, it’s spring again! So, we are looking to take the Boler out for some fun. But, that also means we need time to do some more work on it. We have a few small projects we want to complete on it this year – the addition of a tongue chest box on the front of the trailer to hold the battery and a propane tank. And as an added bonus it will also act as a rock guard. We bought it last year, so it’s time to attach it. In addition we’d love to find a new vent for the top of the Boler, this way we can replace the old one that leaks a little bit. BUT, we want to be able to continue parking the Boler in our garage so it must be a low profile vent cover – this could be hard to find.
But, even more importantly, this summer we have to figure out how to safely use our Boler with our 90lbs dog and our new baby! Yes, that’s right, we have a little one to join in our camping fun – A. We are ever cautious about leaving A and dog together, so we aren’t quite sure how to have the four of us sleeping in the Boler. We are looking for ideas. Right now we are thinking, dog on the ground in the middle (as per normal). G on the couch. L and A on the bed. A will be tucked into the side so that L separates baby and dog. BUT, we also aren’t co-sleepers. So, how do we do this while keeping baby safe at night? We are thinking of buying a Dockatot Grand. But at nearly $420 it seems a little steep.
Anyways, we do have a few camping trips booked for the summer, so we need to figure it out sooner rather then later! I’ll be sure to update once we figure out a plan.
