We went and towed our little Scamp
home yesterday. She's in really really good shape for a '78! Not anything really major to do- the seller had been fixing up already, intending it for his use....He had to sell it because his wife said NO WAY I ain't camping in that thing.. she wanted a "real" RV!
So- he had done all the repairs from a window leak around the table area- fixed the floor and put in all new carpeting.. we personally would have preferred linoleum... I can't stand having to think about vacuuming a camper!
There is rust here and there- the door hinges and latch, too. What do I polish those up with? The axle
needs to be gone over and given a rustoleum paint
I couldn't tell from the pictures before if this trailer had the "fur" or the other walls- it has, thankgoodness, those vinyl walls. I am wondering if they can be painted on with some sort of paint
... I could do stenciling! How fun that would be.
Exterior needs to be cleaned and re-coated/painted! I'll have to have advice from all of you here as to how to handle the exterior! What and how to clean it up....then what sort of Paint
, then new gel-coat? I teased my husband- oh we should paint it PINK and paint on ears, nose and tail like a piggy!
(but I think no other color but white will do for the sun reflective reason!!)
My must- have list immmediately is a screen door!! Husband said- why? Would you sleep with just the screen door in BEAR country??? I rolled my eyes at him and said- like we didn't sleep in the pop up camper in spots with bears??? Geeeesh
Husband says his must is an awning! Anyone add an awning
to an older Scamp>?
Oh another thing I'd love is the ceiling vent fan. And I'm wondering- for the future- if they eventually made windows
for the ends that open, too?
I have to re-decorate it. Has the YUCKY brownish gunny-sack type of cushion covers, naturally. I must have ANY color than brown.
Would be fun to do a space-theme, since these little eggs look sorta "futuristic" in their way. There are so many fabrics with cool space motifs!! hahaha Maybe paint the bottom half silver??
We couldn't even bring it all the way home yet- had to leave it in a son's driveway- OUR driveway out here in the boonies has THE worst frost boil mud pit in it- We got hubby's car out and he's been walking in and out last couple days waiting for that pit to dry!
Anyway- hubby said when pulling it home- OH MAN it's like there is NOTHING behind us! We borrowed son's blazer to go get it. So hubby is pleased. ME too!
