Hi I'm new..

My wife and I just purchased a 1978 14 ft Surfside Triple E. We are quite happy and have taken it out.....bought it and went camping right from the seller. Needs a few updates as the door came off the hinges on our way to Algonquin. I was able to repair it though. I will have many questions and have enjoyed reading others experiences with the Surfside.

Welcome to the group Dave. Looks good too. Yours is the second new purchase recently that had a door problem. You'll get some answers to a fix soon. BTW, we like pics .

Like it and welcome. Nothing like we bought this and the door fell off on our first trip to make for a good family legend. Embellishment optional.

I remember using gorilla tape on our Uhaul door bringing it home to CT from Mich. it had a bad latch. Few days after getting home you wouldn't have recognized that trailer...it cleaned up great. My wife was a believer as we had come from tents etc.

Hi 'Dave' from Ontario; from another 'Dave' from Ontario (and, on-your-way to Algonquin !). I'll add you to my Excel list of 183 other FGRV Ontarioans.

Welcome to the group - loads of 'help' within these pages ! Can I (or 'we') be of any further help ?
