Welcome, Brian! Looks like a nice, clean one youve got.

As to restoration, seems like you have some experience. About the only difference is the fiberglass shell itself. Are you anticipating some fiberglass repair? I would caution against using silicone-based sealants on the shell. It bonds with the fiberglass in a way that is very difficult to remove.

Wed love to see some inside pictures.

Suggest you read up one or more of the hundreds of restoration stories people have posted here. And look at other brands. Most of the restoration will not be unique to the Beachcomber. Some will, but a lot can be learned by reading up on others. If I recall, the Beachcomber has a wood interior. So following a restoration of an Amerigo, or a Bigfoot, or a Surfside will have learnings you could apply. And work on the outside of the trailer, that will have much in common with any brand.

I went from a total novice to at least somewhat knowledgeable by this method.


Agree, sure looks like you found a nice one!

Lots of good stuff out there.

beautiful

Hi Brian,
Yours looks amazing! When I got mine i noticed the floor was spongy at the entrance. I knew right away I would be doing some sort of repair, little did I know how intensive it would. I ended up gutting the entire trailer and starting from scratch, but it was worth it.



I've has seen every nook and cranny of the B-15 so please let me know if you have any questions.



Thanks
Jon

Hi Jon
Thanks, I sure we’ll. From what I’ve been reading seems like all the floors on these had problems. I will also have to replace the whole floor. I wonder where all the water was coming from to rot them out.
