Boler Festival honors camper trailers’ 50th anniversary

MANITOBA, Canada — They’re tiny, weird-looking and utterly loveable.

The made-in-Manitoba Boler trailer was born in the brain of inventor Ray Olecko in 1968.

In celebration of it’s 50th anniversary, more than 450 of the campers from across North America will ramble into Winnipeg on Wednesday, reported GLobal News.

“They’re a phenomenal Canadian invention, they’re recognizable. I refer to them often as memory-makers. You set one up in a campsite and pretty soon your campsite is full of people, reminiscing about when they were children and the camping trips they took with relatives, parents, their families and so on.
