Beach Craft 1987

Hi-

Here in IA I have found a clean Beach Craft 37'. In nice shape. But I don't know ANYTHING about these. I was shopping for a Lazy Daze class C and this is what I found.

It appears to be a Workhorse chassis with a Chev 454. It has a tag axle and air suspension. A/C units under the chassis?

I dont want to bite off more than I can chew with this. Has anyone ever heard of these that can chime in and tell me about these?

It seems like a very well built unit, an I making a mistake buying a little known brand?

Yours is a Chevy chassis, I believe it is a P30 series. Workhorse wasn't around in 87. Here's a post by a member looking for a manual for a 1986 Beach Craft.

For the chassis go to the Workhorse/Chevrolet chassis forum.

I had read that post on the manual. I am just surprised no current or former owners have spoken up on this unit. There isn't even any Beach Craft RVs for sale anywhere on the net.

This must be a rare unit, and likely one that parts might be impossible to find.

Yes, there's not much to be found on the net. Does seem to be fairly rare. Chassis parts are not a problem to get. Appliances, frig, stove, furnace, water pump, etc are common items used by all RV's easy to repair or replace. The only thing that may be hard to replace would be custom exterior and interior parts. If fiberglass or wood they could be repaired.
