Love it, very appropriate. Think it would look best with two shades of yellow

Nice Brian can you add a periscope. I have the old style with the propane tanks outside of the running gear which helps with the sub look. I'd probably go with black stripping and have a scamp sticker cut in black.

Hi: Steve Hammel... Groucho Marx said it best when asked if he'd like a ride in a submarine. "I ain't ridin' in no boat that sinks on porpoise"(sic).
Your Scamp should be a safer bet... but watch out for the boat ramps!!!

I would totally go for it. Our Scamp has a custom paint job and we are planning on adding Star Trek Next Generation decals!

Have you considered a Poliglow or Red Max treatment to put the shine back on? That might be easier.

The trouble is, the longer I look at it, the more it seems that you are towing the sub backwards. Like the propeller should be on the pin.

"Have you considered a Poliglow or Red Max treatment to put the shine back on? That might be easier."

I wish I could do something like that. The biggest problem isn't the shine it is that it is 28 years old and sat under some type of tree neglected in Oregon for a number of years. Anything that could rust did and sunk into the paint as well as mold, bird poop, etc. Barkeepers best friend didn't even make an iota of difference. I did find this Marine stuff for taking water lines and rust off of hulls that actually worked, but the effort involved in cleaning an entire 19' 5th wheel would be enormous. It took hours just to do where the hooks hold the bug cover on the front.

For the price of a paint job, you may be able to pay someone to commercially clean the surface.

Not that a yellow submarine wouldn't look cool.

Actually all these "plastic bubbles" look like little subs. Instead of "Land Yachts" like the big motorhomes are known we can be "Land Subs" or "mini subs". LOL!
