Boles Aero Montecito ?

We brought this home to Spokane, and trying to figure out exactly what it is. 1958, Length bumper to tongue is twenty feet, inside box length is 206" inside width is 91". The outside is really clean with two minor impacts showing, inside is of course garbage but all useable for patterns. It is really hard finding anything on these trailers. Any help in sourcing information on this before I start in on it is much appreciated.

Have you checked all the links in the search results in Post #3?

The new search box above with the blue border works great. Here are the search results for “Boles Aero” from this site only FYI:

https://www.google.com/search?q=Bole...=airforums.com

One of these threads should help. If a particular post looks helpful, you should Quote [button below] the poster, and give a link to this thread.

Good luck,

Peter

PS welcome to the forum!

But did you try Quoting some of the recent posters in those other AirForums threads? When someone is quoted, this site usually sends them an email advising of the quote. Sometimes even posts from years ago get rekindled this way. I will try one for example when I get back home. The phone is difficult to use in this mode.

PS -- FYI I quoted some folks in two threads, and asked for feedback:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f417...ns-125974.html
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f417...ese-59458.html

As a result these two threads now appear near the top of this Vintage Kin forum's list of topics:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f417/

Hopefully this will stir up some feedback for you.

Good luck,

Peter
