hello, my name is Jim
my wife and i just bought a 77 scamp
very close to home. its in fair shape for its age. ive always wanted a lil 13'er and finally got one. we will be pulling it with a 05 caravan. im sure i will be posting questions as i begin to explore the world of camping with this lil thing.
i told my wife alot of people personalize there campers and i told her of a silly idea/name for ours, at least for now. being huge LOST fans (the series on ABC) i got to thinking of the hatch that played a big part of the characters lives in season two (only lost fans will know what im rambling on about). anyway, i told her we could have a Dharma theme throughtout the camper and maybe on the outside we could have the Dharma Swan station logo. i also thought it would be interesting to have Hurlys 'numbers' somewhere on the outside. Silly i know, but she seemed to like it. i think anyone who knew the LOST TV series would get a kick out of it.
anyway i was looking it over and was thinking of some updates it could use. it doesnt have a built in heater so thats one thing id like to add. id also like to put new windows
in, but wonder how hard this would be to do. the battery
now is stored under the bunk area, was wondering if there was a better place to put it. the guy i bought it from moved the water tank from under the dinette area to under the sink, seems fine for now but was thinking of moving it back. seems like theres plenty of info on this website to get me along well enough so that will help. the shell itself has a few cracks here and there and even a small chunk missing around the front lower edge and rear lower edge, can i fix these?
well thats my intro. ill attach a pic of our 77 next to my 64 dart. they both fit in our garage nicely.
