Good for you! I also have a 79 surfside
and love mine. It's in pretty good shape, and we use it a lot. I'm a ham radio operator and use it for emergencies, and radio communication services for different opganizations.
We also fish and hike as well.
We have found the bed to be comfortable after I changed the foam with firmer stuff. The windows
are easily repaired if they leak. I took the propane
out of the camper completely and use a microwave
, I don't trust the old propane
lines. Ours tows like a champ, straight down the road..no wiggle or sway. I use a ford 150 E Van to tow so there is plenty of power.
What changes have you made in yours and what do you like or dislike about it.
Hope to hear back from you.

PS We call our camper "Ham N Egg"
