SOLD FOR $8500

1975 Triple E Surfside Fiberglass Travel Trailer

Completely Refurbished!! 

Keep Scrolling Down for Tons of Pictures!!


We are a husband/wife team of hobby Toyota motorhome refurbishers -  a mechanic, and a detailer - but we took a little detour here to refurbish this cute Surfside fiberglass trailer.  Every square inch of this trailer has been gone over; cleaned, improved, repaired, or replaced; to the best of our ability and within reason. We’ve put hundreds of hours into this little beauty. If you have a yearning for one of these vintage trailers, but lack the time, money, or skills to refurbish it yourself, this Surfside is for you; completely turnkey - just bring food, clothes, and a yen for adventure. Oh, and something to tow it with.  ;)  Check your vehicle's towing capacity. This is a 1975, 15' long all fiberglass travel trailer made by Triple E in Winkler, Manitoba, Canada. These fiberglass trailers are really popular as they're lightweight, and since there is no wooden structure in them, there is nothing to rot with age. This one is the desired front kitchen floor plan that leaves the rear for a large horseshoe shaped dinette with lots of windows, which then makes up into a full sized bed. We designed it to make the whole dinette into a bed, or leave the bed made up and still have a dinette for two with two positions for the table posts. Also, the front kitchen has the fridge up at eye level, which makes it really nice since you don't have to access it down along the floor. 

We bought this one a year ago from a guy who started the project by doing a frame off restoration. The frame was removed from the coach, and painted. He replaced the windows with sliders and screens, new bumper, taillights, side clearance lights; he did brake work and put on new tires, and wheels. We bought it and kept going. Resealed all the windows, installed a new interior, including new cabinet faces, new cushions, new LED light fixtures, new 2 burner Suburban propane cooktop, painted the interior, added a Hydroflame furnace and thermostat,  a converter panel, fresh water tank, water pump, new bamboo Allure flooring, a new table with two post pockets, for two table positions, and added a Porta-Potty to the closet with its own door. We're also including a 50 watt portable solar panel to help charge your battery to run your 12 volt systems such as the lights, furnace fan, Fantastic roof fan, water pump, and we installed a 12 volt outlet to charge your electronic devices.  We also installed the 12 volt Fantastic Fan in the roof with two new wooden roof braces for stability. These move a lot of air. And last but not least, the exterior was painted with beautiful acrylic enamel automotive paint and new graphics. It has a new lease on life and ready to go have some fun. 

The Details:


The body of the trailer consists of fully molded upper and lower fiberglass shells seamed around the middle to form a strong, virtually leakproof unit. Fiberglass is in great shape.

If you want additional photos of something we missed, let us know. Zero feedback bidders need to contact us before bidding, otherwise we reserve the right to cancel the bid. The vehicle title is free, clear, and in our names. As nice as this one is, it is still over 40 years old, so expect some normal wear and usage. If you would like to see pictures of any of our previous Toyota motorhome projects, just ask.

Please do not bid if you do not intend to buy!

This travel trailer is being sold as is, where is, with no warranty, expressed or implied.

This is Our Surfside!

Thank you Admin for posting our Surfside Ebay auction on here! I came here on the recommendation of a friend to list our trailer, and lo and behold, it's already on here! So I have already been in contact with Jason (who came to tour the trailer the other night with his lovely wife and baby son!), and emailed with Sue, but if anyone else has questions, I'm here now. :-) 


Blue skies, Gail
