Welcome, Monica and Susie. Fiberstreams are rather rare and it sounds like you got yourself a nice one, coming with family memories and all.

Roger, SO sorry to hear about your accident, but really glad to hear that no one was hurt! Good luck on finding another home on wheels!

Hi,
Since you are from the sunshine state of California did you buy your Fiber stream in Santa Rosa? WE have seen one parked there for quite awhile and it is in need of TLC.

Hello Everyone!

We're back.... and excited to start getting into the repair process in our pretty Lady.

Here she is:

So far, it looks like there is water damage on the roof/ceiling...... the Fiber glass is dipping, due to the water damage, and the roof vent needs to be replaced. And, as a result of the water damage, the floor needs some work too. So, I'm sure we're going to need quite a bit of help. We are newbies... but pretty handy, and super excited!

Nice to meet you all! And, hello to the "family" in the FS group... we are happy to b here!

Monica and Susie

Lucky, lucky you to have someone who cared enough to pass a Fiber Stream on to you, where it will continue to be loved and used. Totally cool trailers!

I second Ted's request. Any pictures you can share?
Hi Donna! Thank you so much for the welcome.... we're back in the country and getting ready to fix up our lady! Here she is:

Since this is a family heirloom, do you have any experience with camping in it?

1984 is close to the end of production of Fiber Streams. They went out-of-business and closed in 1986 at the top of "factory" output quality; not because of difficulty with the trailer, but because the principals of the company were old and in poor health, and could not interest anyone to buy and be (like them) the Labor as well as the Management. It was a small company and the trailers were custom assembled by these principals. They didn't have but one employee, and their overhead was minimal.
Thank you so much, Fred! I have been reading through the message boards, and super appreciating the wealth of info and knowledge that you have/share. You are Gold around these parts!

This is the most obvious of the repairs we are looking at first, now that we are back and ready to go:

Any suggestions for two ladies that are fairly handy, but definitely new and inexperienced in trailer/fiberglass repair? Thank you!

Feel free to email us if you have questions or concerns. I will try to get a picture on this site. Roger

Hello Family!
It's wonderful to meet you all here.... and maybe some day we will cruise along and post of camp somewhere together!
Susie and I are newbies, and recently got back into the states... we are just about to start restoring our FS Lady.
Roger... sorry to here about your trailer, and so happy you were both safe and sound! Have you begun to play with a new toy?

Much love and happy trails to you all! <3 Monica and Susie

first thing is to fix the leak, a new roof vent installed at this time is a good thing, then remove all the damaged ceiling parts and replace with new foam and your choice of new ceiling material, contact cement is your best friend on this project.

I am doing a 1978 remodel and took out all the carpet and the years of dust and ??? underneath, the plywood is sound so I am going to lay 1x6 pine flooring over it, stained and varnished as I choose. You may find the same will work for your trailer.
