Wow my dad would love that! Of course I'm not offering my trailer up for experimentation...but he has his own 17' Boler. Would the weight of the bike in the trailer cause issues with towing??

Hi, I'm new to this site. We've just bought a '78 Surfside. WE are planning on doing some modifications, and upgrades. I am finding it very difficult to find any information regarding this type of trailer anywhere on the net. I have seen lots in regards to Trilliums and Bolers...etc Just wondering if anyone knows where we might find out a little more about the Surfside??

Thanks,
J
I have an owner's manual on my website that may be of interest. Check it out here: http://www.bolerrv.com/manuals.php

Alan - love to see some pictures! I have a few windows with stripped cranks and am debating what to do with them. We bought a fixer-upper house in Calgary so have been busy but am looking forward to finishing my re-upholstery of the cushions and tackling so other trailer projects.

Also, someone on the site mentioned ZEP as a cleaner to tackle the outside - anyone seen it in Canada? I've tried Walmart and Superstore but no luck yet....

Where did Jana go - she was working on her Surfside too I believe?

I have a line on a Surfside and would like to know from those who own one if anyone has taken a Dry Weight of their unit ?

Does anyone know if all TM 14 Surfsides from Triple E are under 1500 lbs - Dry ?

Mine had a "sticker" inside the closet door which listed dry weight - maybe they can check for you?

I have an 82 Surfside that I just bought. It needs alot of work, particularly sanding and painting, and some other repairs. I've been told it is a "triple E", but it has the kitchen across the front like I've seen in pics of Surfside TMs. What is the difference between the "Triple E" and the "TM-14"? And which years and models have the front vs the side kitchens? Can you with Surfsides post some pics for the rest of us Surfsides to view? The ones in the FGRV album don't show anything like mine on the inside.

Great camper Catherine. I just bought a 1977 SurfSide on the Sep. long wknd. I love it already, it doesn't have the kitchen upfront, but instead on the side - I can't wait to clean it up. If you have a website where you have more pics or feel like emailing some - go ahead, I'd love to see more - mehild@mts.net

I can also email you some pics of our new unit.

Thanks,
Eric

Triple E is an RV company that still exists in Winkler, Manitoba, although they no longer make molded fibreglass units. TM-14 is the model of the trailer.

Congratulations, Eric. What does your Surfside need? Just a cleaning? How about posting your pics here?

Cam (or anyone )
What does the "TM" stand for? I'm still trying to figure out which ones have the front kitchen.

Beats the heck out of me, I don't know if the model designation has a meaning or was picked out of the air. It is not mentioned in the factory manual. My Surfside has a lot more venting on the sides - for the furnace and fridge; but you could get front bunk models without furnace and fridge so I don't think you can use that as a spotting technique.

Catherine (and gang),

Fabulous pix! I always like looking at the one's with the kitchen in front - so rare (I have one, too). Mine is Triple E (manufacturer, out of Winnipeg, Manitoba I believe) AND a TM-14. The 14 stands for how long it is. Here's a stab or two at the TM's:

Trailer Model
Totally Magnificent
Travelling Merrily
Tuesday's Manufacturing (or Thursday's?)
Too Marvelous
The Mansion
Two Morepoundsdryweight

I notice yours has the popcorn insulation; mine has the ensolite insulation. You also have another cabinet door (lower right) where I have a furnace. Where's your furnace? Mine came with a portapotti in the closet (and vent and reading light).
