Thumbs up Boles Aero Paperwork

Boles Aero Documents
I am trying to register a 1959 Boles Aero that is permanently placed and cannot move.I need a document showing the unladen weight for registration. I am looking for a page from an owner's manual with the weight of the trailer for registration purposes. At present it cannot be moved and therefore cannot be weighed at the truck scales.
Any written paper- work will suffice for the process. The exact year is not imperative as well.
thanks so much,

If you can find these documents online you might be able to see a weight on the right side.

Unfortunately, "Owner's Manuals" as we know them today did not exist until the mid-60's. We had one of the first Airstream Owner's Manuel, for our '64 Globetrotter (which went with the trailer when we sold it). We have more "Brochure" type info with our '56 Safari. I too found several Boles Aero Sales Brochures on by Googling "Boles Aero 1959 Specification Sheet" (you've probably already tried this...), but from my brief look at some them, they talk about them being "light" but no weights are given.

You may want to look at the Tin Can Tourist site for additional info - but I'm not sure you're going to be successful.There are lots of Boles Aero trailer owners there - they may be able to help more.

Just curious - if it's permanently placed and not going to be taken on the road, do you still have to register it? I imagine so, or your wouldn't be trying - but just wondering.

Good luck!
