The Beachcomber looks like a roomy, cute little trailer. Welcome to the forum!

Fox Mountain

Get together is at Fox Mountain Campground in Aylesford N.S. July 15th to July 17th. I have a Trillium and a Beachcomber under renovations and not ready for the road yet. I,m going with a tent and will bring pictures of my two. I believe over 100 units coming. Jim.

Thanks for the Fox Mt rally info Jim. I found their website too. Not sure if it will fit into our trip but will keep it in mind. I really would like to drop in and look at everyone's beauties! My Trillium is tripworthy but we will be on motorcycles and may be up in Cape Breton by that time...we shall see!

Thanks. When I get a chance I'll show you what I've got.

I went to the Fox Mountain egg fest. It was great, about 70 vintage fiberglass trailers. Fine people and got tons of ideas. No Beachcombers though. My Trillium will be ready for next years get together in PEI. My Beachcomber the following year. Jim.

The Beachcomber was not far from Fox Mountain; we were in Kempt Shore at the acoustical musical festival last weekend. We had planned to take a run to Fox Mountain at some point but ended up having too good of a time in Kempt Shore. Maybe there will be two Beachcombers next year!

Bill great looking trailer!
I'm actually purchasing a Beachcomber B15, 1979. I have not yet actually been inside one and I was wondering what the interior height was - floor to ceiling?

Hi Peter,


Thanks. I still have some work to do to the outside of it; I plan to recreate the original striping this summer.


I cannot give you an exact height, since it is all wrapped up in the back yard, and now has snow covering it; however, to give you some idea, I am 5'11" and I have no problem standing up in it, but there is not much room left above my head (maybe 2" or 3").


Bill

Beachcomber

Hello, wondering if you could check the tire size on your Beachcomber. My 75 has 14 in. car tires on it and I want to install 205 14 in ST tires and rims. Not sure if they would work in the wheel well. The car tires are badly crackedand can,t take it on the road. Thanks, Jim in N.S.
