I have posted on here before but didn't have photos to post. We purchased a 1976 Surf Side TM-14 (gaucho style) from family just this spring. We are planning on getting it in tiptop shape, as time and money allows. For now we are so excited to be able to camp off the ground in a sweet little trailer! First time taking it out will be this weekend for Canada Day weekend! There are lots of things to do to it. We have already re-wired it, cleaned out mildew from the underside of the cushions, replaced the plywood for the seats as they were filled with mildew, tried to fix the reamed out door hinge screw holes (they are starting to loosen already again), and now we are trying to figure out a temporary way to clamp the jalousie windows
down while driving. The cranks are stripped out and do not seal them tight, worried about if it rains during travel. We plan to actually fix the cranks but this is a temp. fix. Anyway, we are excited to be Surf Side owners! If anyone has any helpful info please share!
