Got in late from work last night so no time to post but will post about replacement decals and other stuff tonight.


Cheers,
Rick.

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
That would be no on the complete rebuild this is a fix it and flip it job, picked it up for a good price so I'll fix or rewire repair or replace brakes, new floor and rebuild cabinets repair and reseal windows, repair and or replace propane lines and install a new modern hitch (I hate the spring loaded ones it came with) what else? most likely tires and some paint.

Gawd awful interior paint job, sort of a chocolate brown sponge painted yuck.

Pictures to come soon as I can.

Rickn

Did I miss anything? LOL.

Talking Well it's got to be nice enough that I'd camp in it myself

I'm certainly not going to the extremes on this one as I am on the one I'm keeping but it has to be dry clean and safe(brakes,electrics and propane, tires and hitch).

I figure I'll have about $800 in materials into it not counting my labour and the original cost of the unit.

I see you're from down Louisiana way, I love Louisiana it's a slow comfortable life style with nice people and beautiful country side. I plan on visiting again one day

Keep me on your radar. I have enough land that you would have a free nights camp (or 2, or 3) if your trip brings you through here.

I don't know if I'd tow my Beachcomber that far but if I do I'll definitely take you up on your kind offer.

Thanks,

Rick.

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
Hey Sid,
Here's the pics - Hope they give you some ideas!

Hi Tamara: WOW is really the right word. Boy it looks like your Beachcomber has been kept well stored for the last 30 plus years. The interior looks almost new. Looks like you can go camping as soon as the weather permits.
Thanks for the pics. They do help alot. If you have more pics that would be great.
I'm hoping I can get my B15 ready in time to go to the glass egg rally in Mission in June. I'm anxious to get at it.
I'll try to post my progress.

Sid

Hey Guys,
Glad you liked the pics; here's a couple more for you to check out. She'd had only been in storage for the last 5 years or so - before that it was used very often! My parents kept it in such good shape and passed it on to me this year .
Sid - if you need any measurements for anything let me know!

Thanks again for even more pictures. They all seem to help even though I am making a number of changes.
There is one measurement I could use. It's not critical, but would be helpul.
What is the measurement from the floor to the top of the seats (or bed when the table is down), not including the cushions?? I'm starting to plan the interior cupboards, benches etc. I plan to put the 12v dc compressor fridge between the door and the bed. That would be where your closet is. I want to move the water tank from the curbside to the drivers side behind the wheel well and then install a small (9.5 litre 115volt ) hot water tank under the stove where the fridge was. I got the water heater brand new and unused at no cost. Of course it will only be usable when we have shore power.
Haven't fully decided on the front bench layout yet. The battery(ies) & electrical will be under the bench on the drivers side, and a porta-potti under the bench ahead of the door. Don't know if the center will be storage or a dinette for two.
Thanks again.
Sid

Hey Sid,
The measurement from the floor to the top of the bench (not including cushion) is 16 3/16". Your plans sounds great! Looking forward to seeing pics!

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: Thought I'd better follow up on our last connection. It's going to soon be time to get to work on the Beachcombers. When will you be ready to get yours out of storage. If you can send pics (Closeups) of the ends of the trailer inside that would really help me. Otherwise, I will be in Kelowna for an appointment on Apr. 10th. Possibly we could meet then???????????

Sid
