Scamp walls

Hi there
New to the Scamp and rv world. Can't wait until spring. What product do you use to hang things in the furry walls?

Michele, we use the hook part of the hook & loop (Velcro) that has the peel & stick design.

Thank you so much. Is it easy to remove? I just got a 2005 13ft Samp. Should be fun with my great dane and standard poodle. Needless to say bed will be down permanently! Never owned an rv but excited to get going. I visit it every couple if days at the storage place.

I would not want to apply anything to the walls with the velcro IF it needed to be removed frequently, as I believe this would cause the "rat fur" wall covering to look a little fuzzy. I have used it for an inside/outside thermometer, and a digital alarm clock. It really takes quite a bit of effort to pull the items off the wall, but this can be adjusted by simply using less velcro on whatever you are applying to the wall. I have also used the very small peel & stick round velcro on light objects.
We use a double mummy style Big Bertha sleeping bag in our 13' Scamp, so we can easily change from bed to table use daily. I know what you mean about just looking lovingly at the trailer just sitting there & wishing you could use it.

Congratulation on your Scamp.
I understand the desire to get out in it. Our 2006 Scamp was delivered December 15 2005. We managed to wait until New Years Eve, 2006, then off we were for a single night. We only waited about 3 more weeks before we headed for Ft Stevens for nice week end. One of the really nice things about a trailer in Oregon you can easily camp year around.

Be careful hanging items of the rat fur/furry walls. If its to heavy it can pull the rat fur away from the wall.

I use office Cubical Hooks for hanging keys etc by the door.

Also use small drapery hooks for hanging small light pictures etc.

A bit of history. A number of years ago, we had a valued member here Pete Dumbleton. He full-timed in a 13' Scamp... with three rats (check out his avatar). The white kind, not the black icky kind. I believe it was Pete that coined the name "rat fur" when it came to the marine headliner material Scamp uses. Pete provided lots of good information and was a warm and caring person to other all molded towable owners. Pete has since passed away from cancer... about 3 or 4 years ago. But the term Rat Fur continues on.

So, while you may think of Willard... I prefer to remember fondly Pete Dumbleton when I hear that term of endearment about the fuzzy walls.

Thanks Donna for solving the mystery of the "rat fur" origins, and for sharing your friends story.

Awww, Donna, I didn't know that story behind ratfur! I remember Pete Dumbleton, he was a wonderful, helpful member of the forum.
