I was hoping someone who actually knows of a Surfside for sale
would reply; sorry it's taken me so long to say, "Hello," and "Welcome!"
First, if you're looking for a trailer, consider watching and/or posting to the Marketplace
threads. That's where people here post their trailers when they go up for sale
That said, my wife saw the Surfside a fellow camper owns, and really liked it's size and shape. She scoured the forums here, eBay, Craigslist, and other websites until she found likely candidate that was a 700 mile drive from home. I went to pick it up.
Our Surfside arrived in pretty bad shape. We wound up needing to completely strip it down, taking it off the frame and making frame repairs, stripping all the interior out, including the walls and floor, and making dozens of fiberglass
and structural repairs. We're still working on it, and hope to have it camping-ready this summer.
It was an old trailer. As many of them are. So, beware of possibly biting off more than you can chew. I consider myself to be very handy and a craftsman, and I enjoy tinkering. I've even done extensive work on our other, larger Scamp
, so I'm familiar and comfortable working on fiberglass
trailers. Now I feel like we're getting somewhere with it and feeling enthusiastic about our new little tow-toy, but I almost lost patience with the Surfside, and was ready to be rid of it at one point.
It does look like it's shaping up to be a great camper now. Again. And we're happy with that.
Back to you, take your time, have faith, don't feel shy about asking questions about whet to look for or whether such-and-so is a good or bad thing in a trailer. Carefully read the Buyer's Checklist
and take it with you whenever you go look at a trailer.
Good luck! We hope to see you around!
