We bought a 1977 surfside
trailer last fall
. Camped in it September long weekend and figured out what we had to do to restore this fantastic trailer. We have had tents, tent trailers and even a "westy" and so far this is starting to feel as good as when we had the "westy". Last month we took it to our friend who is a car body man and a fantastic painter, who did it proud. We also took all the windows
out and put them back proerly with the proper seaant. (care of this site)
Silver & Blue! Matches the silver on our Equinox 05. It sits in our drive way now, calling to us every day, help me enjoy a road trip!!!!!!
Before we head out this summer for weekend camping trips around Manitoba, Canada., we have to sew curtains (Free blinds for any one, come and get them) and we have to find a seal for the door and proper hinges. Looking at the pictures on this site, I now know what type and size I have to get for the hinges and have to find local stores for other items.
After seeing quite a few for sale
and the poor conditions people let them get into, it is no wonder everyone is repairing them as soon as they buy them, but once we have done this, there is no way we are letting this babay go unattended again.
I would like to know "surfside" owners if you have any information, picture and advice on repairs/replacements.
Thanks and talk to you soon.
