Sure glad to hear the prognosis sounds so good...will keep you both in my Prayers

Yep Sid, there's always something new to learn!

I learn something new almost every time I come here.

Thanks for the update and sharing the pictures... looks like your trailer is really coming along nicely
X2 on pictures and it sure looks good. I sure enjoy the great works of others. Gives me so many good ideas

Happy Camping...Lynn

I can try and help with the overlap, Do you want pictures, or ideas. My old paneling is still intact so I can take some pics for you. Alternatively my plan was to (this plan is just a thought, not sure how it will work) frame the paneling out below the belly band so that I can use one piece straight across the back. The back of mine will be a permanent bed, with storage under. This would allow for more insulation where a person would sleep against, and create a ledge for my girlfriends ever present water glass.

Hi Willis, thanks for responding. Pics would be great, but so would ideas.
Also, we'll be making a number of trips to Kelowna in the near future. A personal viewing would be even better if we could set up a coffee meeting. We'll be in Kelowna on Nov. 18, and Nov. 22 for starters. If your
trailer is available for a quick viewing that would be great.

Sid

Hey Sidney

Sorry to hear about your wife, it's tough I know.

As for the Beachcomber looks like you're doing a great job and will have it ready for camping next summer.


Rick.

Hi: I tried to send you a follow up message, but don't know if you received it. We will be in Kelowna from early Mon. Nov. 21st to Noon Thursday Nov. 24th. It would be great to get together and talk Beachcomber. My e-mail
is rosid@telus.net Hope to hear from you.

Sid

It would also help to balance some of the weight between sides. Any comments????
I don't know if I am too late, but my fridge comment is to make sure it is off the floor, regardless of where you end up with it. The Trilliums often have the fridge right down on the floor, making it difficult to open the door if there are shoes or even a rug in the way. Even a few inches off the floor makes a huge difference.

Hey Sidney

How are things, I hope getting better.

I acquired another Beachcomber if you can believe it LOL.

I see we have another Beachcomber owner posting, we may have to start a beachcomber club LOL.

Cheers,
Rick.

Hi Rick: So you picked up another Beachcomber. Is this one going to be a complete rebuild like the other?? What kind of condition is it in?? Does this mean you now have one for each Bronco?? LOL.
I'm just waiting for spring so that I can get at mine again. Maybe another 2-2 1/2 months.
Bye the way, how high did you make your seats (bed) from the floor? I have to start planning my interior, cupboards etc.

Thanks
Sid

Hey Sid, I just read this thread. Very interesting! I have to say, your camper looks as good as any new one these days.
It's pretty neat having a camper that you can arrange any way you want!
Nice job - keep us up-to-date!
Well wishes for your wife.

Hi Tamara: Just read your comment. When my wife read it she chuckled and said "Neither can we". Right now it's in the thought process....
I see you have a 78 B15. Do you have plans to renovate?? Could you send some pics??
I'm still trying to figure how to tie together the upper and lower sections in the front and rear ends.

Like Rick N says there seem to be a lot more "beachcombers" appearing. Maybe we'll have to start a "Beachcomber club" LOL.

Sid

Hi Sid,
I was thinking about repainting the exterior and putting new decals on to spruce her up a bit but that's all. Almost everything else is original and I don't think I can bear to change anything!
I can most definitely post some pics of the interior; it's parked at my boyfriends farm and will be out there on the weekend so I'll snap some while I'm there.
It's great that there are still some Beachcombers out there; maybe a "Beachcomber Club" IS in order!

Tamara: I've been thinking about decals too, but wouldn't have any idea where to get them. They'd probably need to be made by a sign shop. I'd need to get some good pics of the originals.
