'79 TripleE SurfSide

Hi y'all. I recently purchased a 79 SurfSide. Was looking for something to use in the late fall/early spring to extend the camping season and I have many a fond memory of the SurfSide as my parents had one when I was growing up.

She's okay as is (some minor mods by previous owners over the past 30+ years) but I do plan to make her "mine" over the next couple months/years.

Anyway, here's how she looks today, albeit it's raining in Calgary so not the best day to show off!

Cheers and thanks for all the future advice I'll be finding here!


Life is short, then you're dust. Enjoy it while you can!

Welcome to FiberglassRV. I love Thumbelina! I'm sure you'll make tons of memories along the way.

That looks really nice. I love the shape and definition of the lines.

That is the SurfSide graphic that I am looking for the artwork for!! Everyone seems to have the big '70's Block letter style, but my rig has the seagull graphic. Unfortunately it was painted over and now I am looking to get new decals made. I know this is an old thread, but perhaps someone has some insight on how to get this artwork? I contacted Triple-E in Manitoba and they just laughed at me.

If you take this file to a good sign shop, they can clean it up and make you a graphic.

Thanks David, that is awesome! Where do you find something like that? You appear to be quite the Trillium collector extraordinaire!
