Let's Go Camping! | Vintage Boler Rentals


Ready for a little spring/summer getaway? Come springtime, it's inevitable that a few cute campers will start to pop up here on the blog and so when this little Boler passed my radar recently, I knew it had to make an appearance. Not only because it's so adorable but because you can rent it for a little getaway and it's local! 

Golden Age Getaway is a project started by Gamla, a young emerging furniture and product design studio located here in Vancouver in March 2013, renting their fully restored 1973 Boler Trailer.  The camper which was in disrepair was fully renovated adding small design flourishes and functionality while keeping the Boler true to it's original form.  They hand-sewed all the upholstery and curtains using vintage Danish and Japanese textiles, and built all of the other components in their shop.

They also stocked the Boler full of vintage goodies, from Hawaii themed melamine dishes, board games and Manitoban memorabilia. It's truly an amazing little space to spend a vacation.

So fun! Let's take a look shall we?




For more information or for reservations, visit: goldenagegetaway.com

Stay tuned for a post on Gamla's beautiful work and studio shortly!

Gotta love a Boler! I'm from Winnipeg and use my 1976 yellow "Eggie" to sell my vintage wares out of and camp with my family too. I love it to bits! In Winnipeg there is a boler rental company called bee together excursions, all their bolers are painted black and yellow. They look like a great company.

How adorable. We've always wanted a cute little camper. I've always felt that getting away is necessary every once in a while but especially little camping trips where you can really take some time to appreciate the beautiful world that we live in!

I am happily and excitedly overwhelmed by all the amazing content on this site. Just from browsing through the different categories... it's like the kind of blog I always want to find. Can't wait to check it all out.

What an adorable caravan. The fabric patterns (in particular the cushions) are gorgeous.

The accessories dotted around and features are great and I love the chalk board, I have a chalk board in my own home - lots of fun to be had.
