  • Introduction

    Thank you for allowing me to join. I purchased a 1974 14 foot Triple E Comfort which will need a ground up restoration. Of course there is a hitch. I have a deadly allergy to latex. So everything going in there has to be latex free. What I am looking for is advice on how to restore it and will research the adhesives, foams and parts that will go in. It’s imperative for this to be safe both in construction and materials.

    Hello and thanks for joining!

    Not sure about your unique situation with materials requirements but certainly hope to be of some help or even just moral support. That is a really neat looking design with lots of potential! Lots of TLC needed but should be well worth it.

    Am I correct in understanding that latex is basically anything that contains natural rubber?

      Yes any natural rubber latex. Need to have another haven for traveling other than the vehicle.. this trailer was actually made in Winkler Manitoba. I called them to ask for advice but, they said they don’t have anything from 44 years ago. I plan to deconstruct it and rebuild from the ground up. I will use the non rotted parts as a template.

        Will be really neat to have something that was built local to you! Our Champion Motorhome was built in Indiana and I've had some people around Michigan ask about it. Recently at a gas station in Northern Michigan a guy told me he had worked for Champion in the early nineties but not on our model.

        In my search for more info on Champion a person local to the old facility said they had a fire and most documentation was destroyed. Hope it's not true but they sounded fairly credible.
