Aaaaargghhhh!! Hide them?

The wheels are the focal point of any vehicle!

The tires should be clean and dressed and the wheels painted and "trimmed" with hub caps and/or trim rings! (there; doesn't that sound almost girly?)

It's true about the focal point but I say it with humor!

And then there is the "my mag wheels are more rare and exclusive (expen$ive) than yours" school of dress-up.

How about painting flowers on the hubcaps?

No flowers on the Eurovan dash. That has a combination of Chicago Cubs and University of Iowa decor. Hmm. Neither goes with Uhaul. That won't take home a trophy at the VW show. Gotta think.

Thank you for this thread!!! I have such girly grandiose ideas for my 95' 13 Scamp! I pick her up on Saturday and already all flooring, knobs, fabric picked! All my boyfriend wanted was a camper! Haha! I call it camper flipping! I really want to remove my fuzzy rat fur walls but think it may be more daunting than its worth. Thoughts?

Whitney I really think taking the fuzzy Rat Fur off the walls is bad idea and you will be very sorry that you did. There is a reason its there. I believe a lot of folks gave you some input on that topic on another thread did they not? or wasn't that you?

Once you put in a new floor and fabric etc you can hang things like pictures and key hooks etc from the rat fur using the pins that are used for pleating drapes.... they work well and you will not even notice the rat fur after a short time.

You're right...I know I'd regret it. It's just so....fuzzy!!!! Ha!! I'm just trying to get several opinions on it and so far all match yours. I did have a guy email me and said removing from the door and refinishing that helped in get over the rat fur everywhere. I may try that. I need to get the poor little egg home an start on it all and I think you're right....it will eventually just be part I her charm. Thanks for the feedback.

Your so very welcome! Please post pic's of your grandiose flip!




I pick her up on Saturday and already all flooring, knobs, fabric picked! All my boyfriend wanted was a camper! Haha! I call it camper flipping!

Congrat's! Again, Pic's... We even like pic's of any type of decor. Though I do have a soft spot for glamping decor!




I really want to remove my fuzzy rat fur walls but think it may be more daunting than its worth. Thoughts?

I know everyone is so cautious of removing rat fur, carpet (casitas), etc. But I say, if that's what you want and are will to take on the project to it's completion then go for it! But as Carol stated, the rat fur is there for a reason. So it would have to be replaced with something. Or if it's in decent shape, clean it and cover it with something that you do like.


I think the first pic I posted of the pink interior is an air stream. So if an airstream can have a unusual wall covering then why not a Scamp?
